My wife and I recently visited our our adult son who lives in Fort Lauderdale. We enjoyed seeing the city from the waterfront. The experience was made more enjoyable by the fun narration as we passed the properties of the rich and sometimes famous local homeowners.

What a great way to get around the city. Even if you don't have a set destination, you can jump on the water taxi and ride up and down the inter-coastal water way all day for around $26 bucks per person. They run from morning until late evening. It's a must do if in Fort Lauderdale.

Great times on the water taxi! I felt like I was in a different world. Indiana is nothing but cornfields. I truly enjoyed this city, and seeing via the water taxi..

Best way to see Fort Lauderdale - the Venice of America. Love looking at the yachts and mansions and seeing how the other half live.

This is definitely the best way to get to and from the tourist attractions in Ft. Lauderdale. It was stormy by the end of our day, so it was rough to try and get through the water, but overall it was a really fun ride. Staff tour you around the various areas and explain history of Ft. Lauderdale. It is... More

The water taxi is a great way to go up and down the inter-coastal. We actually used the taxi to hop our way to the north and back, just sight seeing and looking for cool resturants at each stop. $25 per person. We boarded our first leg from the stop at the 17th St bridge by the Hilton. Once to... More

If you catch the ride, lucky! If not, you can be in for a long wait! We waited at one stop over an hour. First we were told that there is a W stop from which we can wave down the passing by water taxi, or just call their number. No such service. Some guides on the boat were pleasant... More

Touristy yes, but a wonderful way to experience the US intercoastal waterway from Hollywood to north Ft Lauderdale. In open or closed boats each one has a tour guide that will point out the beautiful yachts and give you a description of the hundreds of mega mansions along the waterway.The stops are at shopping and restaurants and the Hollywood broad...

The easiest and most affordable way to spend a leisurely day sightseeing along the beautiful intracoastal waterways of Ft Laud and south Florida. Well worth it. Lots of places to stop and get off along the way too, especially some of Ft Lauderdale's finest and best know restaurants along the route. Great way to spend a day.
