We stayed at Fort Lauderdale beach resort and water taxi was walking distance. It was well worth the eighteen dollars a person. Very easy to get on an off at various locations. Plan to spend the entire day.

One of the best ways to see the "Venice" of America is by boat. You get great views of the city no matter what time of day you go. Either sunny views or spectacularly lit up night views. It is also a lot of fun...More

The water taxi has a pretty easy app to follow and understand when and where the taxis are. The cost is a little expensive if you have a larger family $18.00 per person. yikes.... But the view is amazing! You are able to get off...More

We had a fantastic time, spent most the day riding from location to location just learning about For Lauderdale. It's really neat, each driver/tour guide knows or shares different history about houses and who owns what, so each ride is not repetitive. I highly suggest...More

Ride the water taxi route instead of the Jungle Queen. That way you dont have to waste an hour on that "island" looking at bugs while they try to sell you a magnet. Ryan and Christina were great on the water taxi.

Yes, I believe so. It is a side route off of the main 1-10 numbered stops. I forget what number you get off or if that is another water taxi route on its on.

Water Taxi. (3 Replies)
We are staying close to stop # 5 so access is close. QUESTION is, how often does it take for the next taxi to arrive ? Do they have a schedule like bus stops do ? And is it a great way to sight-see ?

Check their web page for best info, some stops are whistle stops, while others run on a schedule.

Hello Still looking into my options re things to do around the Xmas Holidays. I am currently researching the various river tours out thier and the 3 posts in the titel come up fairly regularly. Can anyone give me thier views, Jungle Queen is not badly rated on here, but forum posters don't seem too enthusiastic.....I also wanted to ask...if I do decide to go on one of them, is it worth going in the evening considering we may not 'see' much?

We've done them all and I would pick the CarrieB first. If you go with the Jungle Queen just avoid the trip that includes the meal as the food is terrible! The Water Taxi is actually pretty nice if you get the all day pass which is something like $20. You do get to see a lot but it is a very slow way to get around as it makes many stops. It kind of depends on where you are staying if the Water Taxi would be convenient or not.
