We enjoyed the tour on the intercostal and it is also convenient to drop off locations throughout Fort Lauderdale. Great ride, relaxing and a tour also included.

This is the best way to get to know Fort Lauderdale and its canals. It is a great way to move around Fort Lauderdale (the Venice of America) through the water. It is fun and its crew amazing!

Bought an all day ticket & got off at a few stops. The women talking was informative & amusing. Los Olas was our favourite stop - nice restaurants. Roccos Tacos was inexpensive & tasty

We had a great time Sunday afternoon with Captain Chris, Will and Mary. We stayed on the boat for the entire route, but there were many stops if you wanted to get off and on. Will makes a mean Marguarita, and Mary kept us entertained with her knowledge of the residences we passed. Captain Chris did a fantastic job! Thanks!!

Water taxi is a great way to get around and tour the area. The boat will pick you up and drop you off all day for $26. Very relaxing ride.

This is just a really great ride. Lots of information, some of which is beyond comprehension. Seeing wonderful residences with a price tag that is beyond most peoples dreams even if they won the lottery. Also, some have yachts outside with a value not much less. It is a bit scary that you can see but not fully comprehend the... More

The water taxi tour is always a great time. The tour guides go out of their way to educate you on the route as you pass famous houses, different areas/dining options on the route. A small tip as a token of your appreciation is a simply but thoughtful token.

It was not a great experience. The rides are short and you have to change boats often. The waits were long because they reduce frequency in the summer, which we were not told. One of the female boat captains was rude and impatient; she didn't want to answer questions so she almost threw a map at one of us so... More
