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

pleasant water ride with commentary from captain as you travel past famous peoples homes to the restaurant we went in daylight and returned at night when the river was lit up so we had day and night view.

Met some people who recommended the Water taxi. We were a little hesitant but gave it a shot! What an unexpected surprise! This is by far one of the best service companies I have ever encountered! The water taxi provides a beautiful, tranquil way to see Ft. Lauderdale! The boat stops at various stops along the waterfront, beaches, bars, restaurants... More

First, we had fun riding the boats and hopping on and off at the various stops. But, they mischarged us (sold us 5 senior tickets for $21 each, plus $7 for parking, but charged my card for $137, so they overcharged by $25). It's not like they sold us the full price tickets, the tickets we got had $21 printed... More

We decided to kill some time and do the water taxi... So glad we did. It was a lot of fun, easy to catch and hop of and on, the crew did a great job talking about the sites and history of the area. We were only able to do about 60% of the route, so will do the rest... More

We were a large family group and the ferry was able to accommodate us all on both levels. The tour info was interesting. It was an easy way to get around when time is not an issue.
