For $26 a day for adults, you can get around to a lot of the Ft. Lauderdale/Hallendale area. The boats are clean and the drivers/captains are friendly overall. You also get a great view of some huge houses and boats/yachts. There are several small boats which then feed into larger vessels which go into Ft. Lauderdale (we started in Hallendale).... More

We had fun taking the water taxi. Wish had been in town to take it all day but we only had late afternoon into the evening. It was still fun. Guides shared lots of info about the homes and yachts that we saw. We went all the way to the end and ate at Shooters which was wonderful food. The... More

To take a ride in the water taxi its lots of fun. The captains usually share stories about owner of the large yachts, the life of the rich and famous, the price of the large homes and who are the owners. If you want to save money, go park your car at Galleria for free, walk to the Gallery One... More

We enjoyed this way to see some of Ft. L after our cruise. The crews were entertaining as they provided a lot of information about the mansions and yachts along the shores. Although you can get off and on at any of the 19 stops, we just got off twice..at the mall and at a dockside restaurant for lunch.

"The coolest thing!" That's how my wife described our day with the Water Taxi. We enjoyed the colourful commentary about the yachts and properties along the way. We hopped off at Fort Lauderdale Beach Park. Bummed around on the beach for a while. Hopped back on the Taxi for a return trip. The Water Taxi was an exciting part of... More

We had some time to kill on a turn around day for our back to back cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. I bought tickets on line through one of the travel websites at a substantially better than regular price, which was a bonus. This was somewhat offset by being ripped off by the cab company that had all 9's in... More

We started off having a nice time on this tour. We had a nice boat ride all the way down to Hollywood and most of the way back is when this company lost me as a customer. We were waiting for a boat at stop 6 when the boat Island Discover showed up. A blondish lady that refused to give... More

Great fun, really worth it!!! It's a fun way to get around Ft.Lauderdale and now the expansion to Hollywood really makes it even better. A great way to avoid traffic.
