“Water Taxi - Good, Cheap tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Take the water taxi and see all the beautiful houses along the intercoastal waterway. We took it to one of the stops, got off and had dinner, and took it back to hotel. Bring a couple of dollars to tip the driver.. they give you a verbal tour along the way. You can get on/off the taxi all day, until around 11 p.m.

“Ocean up close.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

It is one of the longest waterways on the Eastern Seaboard and is used by a variety of watercraft and provides a safe route away from the ocean traffic.

“Spend a day exploring on water taxi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

175 miles of man made waterways lined with multi million dollar mansions

Saw Steven Spielberg's 200 foot yacht docked at the cost of $2000 per day

Water taxi is not cheap. $20 per day so plan on a day long adventure exploring the entire length of the boat route

Run all day

“Water taxi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Water taxi was great. Like that you can get off at different spots to eat or shop. We enjoyed just looking at the beautiful homes and yachts.
