Owner description: Take the Water Taxi tour to explore Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood from the water! Your ticket allows all-day Hop On / Hop Off at over15 stops, and savings at restaurants and attractions at each stop. Think of it as a trolley tour on the water with great destinations along the way.

I decided to use this transport just to reach in a different way a part of the city, but I felt in love with it.
The route is pretty long and it makes you have a complete tour of the city, seeing everything from the boat.
The "sailors" are agreeable and you can have plenty infos on board about what you see or the some interesting facts about the city.
I suggest it especially in the evenings, when you can see the big villas and yachts shine with shine with their charm of billionaires' properties.

We discovered this our last night in Fort Lauderdale! We wished we would have used it everyday!!!! We loved how beautiful it was and how convenient it was to our hotel!

Even locals should take the water taxi around the area at least once. We took guests along with us who really enjoyed the information the driver and assistant had to share.

We never had any long waits and the staff was very courteous in assisting people on and off the boat. Take the evening ride and save some money and it's not as hot during summer months.

This is our second time visiting Ft. Lauderdale. I would not recommend traveling this way if you are in a hurry. We wanted to go visit Hollywood Beach. We used the water taxi to get there. We started at stop 10 (Shooters) and had to go to stop 5 (connection to Hollywood). After waiting 40 minutes the connecting boat came. It took 45 minutes to get to Hollywood Beach. It was a beautiful ride but it took a long time. Coming back the connection wait times were less but with a bathing suit on it was a long ride and uncomfortable. I am glad that I went but I probably would not do it again. Bring a change of clothes for the ride back after beaching it all day the ride home would be more fun.

For $20 all day, this is a bargain for anyone who likes to see how the rich and famous live. The yacht and homes on the canals are spectacular. The commentary by the driver and assistant are just right, not overbearing. A good mix of humor with factoids about the area. Plus, if you are barhopping or looking for dinner, they take you to a lot of different areas to explore. As they say, there is a bar at every taxi stop! Why spend more than $20 o a large boat to show you the sights for an hour when you have unlimited use all day on the taxi? A fun ride if you like the water.
