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 over 22 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. **Important note: Go to our web site for pick up an drop off locations. Do not go to the office location as it is just the business office and Water Taxis do not pick up at the business office. **

The ride was relaxing but got boring on the north end of the route with only a few stops and lots of similar scenery.

A very nice, relaxing ride serves as transportation as well a tour of the mansions, boats and waterways. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and funny too. The area is beautiful, a side of Fort Lauderdale you can only see from a boat on the intercoastal. We thought it was a bit pricy considering the water taxi's in our area are cheaper but perhaps you don't get a tour guide with it. It is Hop-on Hop-Off for that price so if you are stopping several places it is reasonable but if you are making only one stop its a bit expensive. The only other issue we had was that no one at the hotel could tell us what time the taxi's ran so we had to walk to the entrance and even there the signs were confusing as to which direction we needed to go "Inbound" or "Outbound". A map specifying that would have been helpful. Others we met had the same problem. Still a very nice ride.

My wife and I are local and we sometimes will take the water taxi in the evening for just a boat ride. The water taxi makes continuous round trips up and down the intracoastal waterway. Various pickup locations make the water taxi convenient to ride.

The taxis run frequently and the people in charge are friendly and give a tell a good story about the many yachts and mansions that are passed.
