The water taxi is a unique way to tour Fort Lauderdale. While it is a little pricey at $26 a person, it is a fun way to stop at different destinations throughout Lauderdale. The staff also provides interesting facts along the way.

What a great afternoon . . . enjoying a leisurely boat ride on the intracoastal canals in Fort Lauderdale. This ride past mega-yachts and mega-mansions gives you a historical and current visual perspective on why Fort Lauderdale is called the Venice of America.

Service was extremely slow. They didn't have as many Taxis running so waited 40 minutes. Didn't know that until the first one finally showed up. Pretty pricey for limited service-- had I known --I would have spent my money elsewhere. We got discount tickets at hotel-- $52 for two adult passengers.

We bought the all day ticket for the water taxi. It's a fast, reasonably priced way to see Ft. Lauderdale, and get around. We took 3 different taxis. All were good, but Capt. Nelson was the most informative and entertaining.

It's a little daunting to start if you're not familiar, but the best way to see all the boats and houses in Lauderdale. Awesome, and super informative.

The water taxi at one time would pick you up at your dock...no more for come time. It once had a reasonable price and was fun to walk to for a little cruise to a dock proximate to a local restaurant and back. Now the prices are so high, it is NOT a reasonable local mode of transportation for residents.... More
