Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi

Great for just taking a boat ride. Ft Lauderdale ride is 3.5 hours. Get off and on at any stop. You will see amazing houses and yachts of the rich and famous.

We spent a good part of our day riding the water taxi up and down the river. The staff is full of corny jokes and tales of the people who own the mansions and unbelievable yachts along the route. We hopped off for lunch and got a special deal when we showed our Water Taxi tickets. After lunch, we hopped... More

Excellent commentary and friendly guides. Great value, you can ride from 10 am until early evening. We were able to catch a bridge opening when Steven Spielberg's MY Seven Seas arrived in Port. Waterfront Real Estate tour, Iguanas on the route, restaurant suggestions.

We were only here for a few days and wanted to see as much as we could, the water taxi was a great way. It takes you all around the houses of the rich and famous, which is so interesting. You can get off and on as much as you like, a one day ticket is $26 but only $21... More

A great way to see Fort Lauderdale in a short time. Staff were very informative. Didn't have to wait too long for the next taxi.

Great sightseeing value to get the full flavor of Fort Lauderdale. Moderators are very knowledgeable about the history of the sites, homes and the celebrities who own them. The Water Taxi is a must for your bucket list of things to do.

Purchase a ticket and in addition to a beautiful boat ride where you can see gorgeous waterfront properties and yachts, you can get on and off at 12 different stops - Las Olas, Hollywood Beach. Great way to sightsee.

The water taxi is a great way to take friends to see Fort Lauderdale by water. An all day ticket costs $26, $21 for seniors. You can get on and off and have lunch, dinner, sightsee or do shopping when at a stop, and get back on later. It's fun with good commentary on the sights. Recommended for visiting friends... More

Wonderful way to see the homes of the rich and famous and check out some awesome restaurants! And you never have to worry about drinking and driving - someone else is in charge!

Waited half hour and then water taxi (driven by Bob and Phil, who we caught up with later) went straight by and deliberately ignored us. Avoid Hollywood route unless you like "scrub and rocks" as described by staff commentator. Interesting bit is mansions and yachts between stations 1 to 9 which lasts about 45 minutes out of around 3.5 hours,... More
