About Water Taxi
Fort Lauderdale is known as the “Venice of America” because of its many beautiful waterways. One of the best ways to Explore our city is from the water. The Water Taxi is more than just a boat ride. Our Captains and Crew are well versed on the city and the many attractions that can be viewed from the water. As such, they provide a narrated excursion that includes historical information as well as fun and interesting information about the many Mansions and Mega Yachts that line the waterways. There are a 10 stops in Ft. Lauderdale, and 1 stop in Hollywood at the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort and the Historic Hollywood Broadwalk offering live entertainment nightly. Additionally, Water Taxi operates a complimentary Water Trolley that is supported by the City of Ft. Lauderdale that makes 8 stops along the River Route.

We enjoyed a lovely morning touring around the waterways of Fort Lauderdale and admiring the villas and boats of the rich and famous inhabitants. We got our tickets from the concierge at the hotel next to the water taxi stop, and water about 15 minutes for the boat to arrive. We stayed on board for a round trip and thought it was excellent value for money.

The Water Taxi is NOT operating safely for COVID. Its boats are full of people that are not socially distancing or wearing masks. See photo. This poses a serious risk of COVID infection.

Waited at the stop. There was no notice stating it was not running. But, after questioning others who were shooting the breeze under the canopy we were told that a water taxi had passed by about an hour earlier. We left and walked along the Riiver Walk where we saw a large number of taxis moored on the other side. None were moving. A poorly run attraction.

Hi there! Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention! If we shut down unexpectedly, it is announced on social media and on our website. Were you able to call our office? You can also check out our website under live tracking to see departure and arrival times! Please note: the large number of boats along the River Walk would be our headquarters!

It was so cool to catch a water taxi from one side of the intercoastal to the other. Wouldve cost twice as much taking a driven taxi

For $12 you can travel most of the waterway in Ft Lauderdale. While riding, they comment on some of the homes - which are beautiful and interesting. Hop on/ Hop off - stop for a meal or drink. This is a good one!

Thank you!! Just to clarify for anyone reading this review, the $12 price was the price of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show transportation. Please visit our website for more information on Hop On/ Hop Off prices. We really appreciate the review, glad you had a great time, and hope to have you back soon :)
