“Boat trip to view the millionaires homes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Was entertaining but a little too long. Stopped off at an island with caged wildlife & an alligator wrestler who entertained the crowd and basically begged for tips as his only means of income.

“The homes and businesses were all decorated for the Holiday Boat Parade.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Loved traveling up and down the Intercostal Waterway. Beautiful homes, great restaurants. The water-taxis are handy to get on and off for the day.

“Nice way to get around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

We used it as a hop on - hop off taxi. Good informative comments are given all the way. Nice way to explore Fort Lauderdale.

“Venice of Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

The Intracoastal Waterway is a spectacle at Fort Lauderdale but what is really interesting is the dozens of canals that grace residential backyards in this City. The maze is so vast that you probably need GPS to navigate the town. Don't leave town without experiencing it.

“fun experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Take a 'hop on - hop off' water taxi, and enjoy the experience of seeing how the rich live. Just to see the yatchs the stars and rich own is quite an eye opener. Fabulous. You can get off the taxis, at the various stops, and rejoin the taxis as and when you want, enableing you to see various parts of this area of Fort Lauderdale. There are lots of fun bars, restaurant s and of course shops to see. The taxis run until around 10.30pm so you can have a drink or meal, and not have to worry about drink/drive laws. Allow at least most of the day for this experience, as there is so much to see. A must!!
