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.

The water taxi is efficient and informative way to navigate around Ft Lauderdale. The crews are a source of great information and antedotes. The waterfront tour is a 90 minute ride to see the lights on the estates along the Intracoastal Waterway.

The crews were a source of great anecdotes, unfortunately if you travelled the same bit of water with a different crew you soon realised that they were all well rehearsed from the same script, still entertaining though. We did alight at a recommended stop for loads of shops, bars restaurants etc., where I got invited into a cosmetic beauty parlour... More

If your just visiting on vacation or Live here nearby, we recommend the water taxi. We loved it, we ended up on 3 different taxis, two of them had bathrooms and one of those had a bar( that was the double decker) The only thing that made us and others unhappy was that the stop was not picking up with...

The water taxi is really informative and takes you to all the tourist areas that would be really costly to have to go by taxi car-lovely look at the amazingly millionaire properties on the waterways. Definitely a good way to go

I only was in FL 2 days, and choose to take the water taxi to experience the Marina area. You can drop in and off the taxies the whole day. The taxi has a guide that tells about the houses and boats in the area. Many celebrities who have a history in the area.
