Owner description: The Water Taxi Miami is existing now for the 3rd year, we offers a single or round trip water taxi service in the Miami area. We have specific drop off and pickup locations in these area's. The benefit of using the water taxi in Miami is to use the natural environment the water instead of using individual cars to move to and from different key locations in Miami and Miami Beach. Water Taxi Miami introduced last December our Xpress service. Your private captain will on our 6 or less passenger Water Taxi Xpress and speeds up to 35mph over the water to accessible water front destination.

“well worth the money and time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

i took the water taxi to south beach and it was nice. The 2 ladies were chatty and informed us of all the information we needed and gave us a map for when we got to south beach. It was only $20 return and 35 minutes each way.
On the back they lady pointed out shakiras and rikki martins house and a few others.
Think the first one leave at 11am and last one from south beach is 19:00 in peak times. Please check the times though as time may change.

“Awesome way to travel to South Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Our options of getting to South Beach from downtown Miami were the bus, taxi, or water taxi. I don't know why you would take the first two when you can take the water taxi! Round trip it was $20 for a 35 minute boat ride each way. It was really nice to see the Miami area on a boat and it doubled for us as a sightseeing drive as well as transport to the beach. I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it, especially if you don't plan on taking any other boat ride.

“Cheaper than the tours and you see the same thing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We caught the Water Taxi back from Bayside marketplace to South Beach. 12bucks each and it goes past most of the things that the tours that cost three times as much. The crew point out all the mansions and tell you who they belong to. A fun way to spend half an hour. hanks to Captain Brenda and crew

“Not just a means of transport - an activity in itself!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Took the Water Taxi from Bayside over to South Beach, and then from South Beach across a different part of the bay back to Bayside. For twenty dollars a head, this is a must-do! The Captain and her assistant are immensely friendly, charming and informative, and the trip itself is a refreshing blast of sea air! Lots to see (the port, the liners, the bridges, Star Island, Macarthur Causeway etc etc) and regular drop-offs and pick-ups from the southern end of South Beach's Art Deco district (also a must-see). So you can stay and sightsee for as long as you like, as long as you get back to the pier in time... If you only get the chance to go out on the water once while you're here, don't blow hundreds of dollars on speedboats, RIBs or big-game fishing operations... Hail the taxi and do it in relaxed style!
