It was a beautiful day and I loved listening to our guides explain about the mansions along the intercoastal.

“Relaxing day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Took the water taxi from Hollywood to Ft Lauderdale for a round trip. Had to pay when on the boat and was $100 for 2 adults and 3 kids 12,15 & 17. A little expensive for a family for a round trip ride. Should have planned it better but the staff was friendly and knowledgeable.

“Great by day, boring by night (depending on crew)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

The Water Taxi is a great way to see cool sights along Florida's Intercoastal Waterway-- including famous houses, boats, and buildings. However, it would help if the Water Taxi crew would point them out! The first time I visited in Jan 2011, the crew was really good about pointing out and describing interesting sights -- even at night. I learned a lot, and had a great time.

But, when I recently returned for another nighttime visit, the crew didn't bother pointing anything out. Our ride was silent, boring, and felt like a work-commute. The rest of my group was left disappointed, unimpressed, and clueless about what they'd just seen.

“Great transportation while in Ft L!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We have utilized the Water Taxi now on our last two visits and have been very pleased! Not only is it a great way to see the sights of Ft Lauderdale, it's a convenient way to get around town as well. The Taxi has multiple drop-off points, conveniently located along the waterway at many popular spots/destinations. We never rent a car and just go everywhere we need to by this Taxi ... always a good way to get the latest scoop on the locals too from the tour guides :)

Buy the week long pass--it's a great deal!

“Best way to see the huge yachts and mansions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

My wife and I took the water taxi last year during a visit to Fort Lauderdale and really enjoyed it. On this trip to Fort Lauderdale we decided to spend more time on the water taxi so we could stop at most of the thirteen stops that they stop at. We walked down to their office and purchased a three day pass for two people for $99 which is a $21 saving over their normal rate. We started fairly early each morning and came home on their last departure every night which was around 11:30 pm. This is one of the few ways to see the beautiful yachts and mansions on the intra-coastal and to learn about them and who owns them. We actually went on the water taxi for an additional two more days. Five straight days on the water taxi! My wife enjoyed just being on the water all day getting sun and relaxing. We both highly recommend taking the water taxi for at least one full day.
