Good value

Good value and very informative . Easy to hop on or off wherever. It was fun and interesting. The only problem was it was difficult to find the first boarding place

Went on water ferry very interesting looking at the rich and famous houses you are literally on their front door step. The girls were very helpful and very knowledgeable about houses and area. Boat was clean and had seating inside and outside I loved every minute of the ride .

Used the taxi to get around. Enjoyed the tour of houses etc. Saw a manatee. Sit towards the front of boat if you want to hear the tour guide. Missed a lot in back. See expensive homes. Saved our feet.

We bought the day pass so we could hop on and hop off all the stops, very nice and entertaining, the staff was kind and fun, so they deserve the tips, I recommend a ride at night so you can enjoy the lights reflect on the water and the cityscape. Very nice and good price!!

You wandered how those huge houses look on the water, but your friends with boats never invite you? Or you have nothing else to fill that boring Saturday? Get a day pass on water taxi and go explore. If you have friends (out of town guests), bring them. The more the merrier!

obviously the water taxi is intended primarily to get you from point A to point B but even if you are not going anywhere, you can ride it just to see the estates and mansions of Ft Lauderdale via the water - the rivers and the intercoastal waterway. on a nice day or evening just ride it. if you are...

On our vacation we took the water taxi up and down the waterway. They were on time. Courteous and informative. It was not just a taxi service as the pilot or first mate would point out landmarks along the way. Take the water taxi. Worth every penny.

For about $25 you can ride the water taxi ALL DAY up and down the inter coastal. What a great time. A taxi boat stops every 30 minutes so you never have to wait long. Great for sightseeing, shopping, and bar hoping.
