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, more specifically, from a Water Taxi. The Water Taxi is far 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. Aboard each Water Taxi is service for non alcoholic and alcoholic beverages, perfect for the Florida heat. 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 were able to catch a taxi right outside of our hotel, which was very convenient. We went the wrong way first so the guide held another taxi at the next stop so we could go the other way, very helpful. The only drawback to the second trip was there was a bunch of women who were drunk, loud and obnoxious they deterred from the trip as the guide could not speak over them. On our way back, we had a great guide who explained how the canals were built, who lives where and the like. We could have stayed with him the entire way he was so informative. I highly recommend doing this.

This is a really good low key tour to kill some time and get some laughs and see the area. I imagine it depends on the Captain and A Captain and I also imagine Bob and Carl are 2 of the best. Great comedy, stories and pointed out all the attractions. Highly recommended.

Great experience! Loved the pay and hop on and off all day flexibility. No driving and finding parking from place to place. The guides all say the same thing..must be scripted and memorized. $5 Margaritas during happy hour were watery as expected. We got offand spend a few hours at Ft. Lauderdale Beach.
