We took advantage of the water taxi while on vacation in the Hollywood beach / Fort Lauderdale area. The boat picks up on the hour starting at 10 am. We picked up the taxi at 5 o’clock somewhere bar and that was very easy to find. We used the taxi to get an overview of the area , check out the beautiful homes on the water , and head to Fort Lauderdale to enjoy the shopping and dining for the day.
Pros :We were able to buy tickets right at our resort , which was very convenient. You can also purchase tickets right on he boat. Staff on the boat were friendly, funny, and exercised appropriate safety precautions. You can even enjoy a beverage on your ride if you want to.
Cons: Only runs until 9 pm and tickets are one price even if you only take the taxi one stop.
Items to note : there are different types of taxi boats ( some have two levels and others one level like the one in my photograph ). If the weather is crummy or you want a larger boat, you can wait and take the next boat out to take advantage of that option.
