Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Take the Water Taxi tour to explore Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood from the water! Your ticket allows all-day Hop On / Hop Off at over15 stops, and savings at restaurants and attractions at each stop. Think of it as a trolley tour on the water with great destinations along the way.

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.

The Water Taxi driver and mate were full of information on the houses, yachts and their owners. It was also a great way to see a side of Ft Lauderdale you otherwise would not see.

This water taxi is a big rip off - it cost us $ 36.00 for a 10 min ride and could not get a ride back - waited over 40 mins at the stop and the water taxi did not show up .Tried to call the phone number posted on the stop sign and got a voicemail . Paid $36.00 for nothing - would have been better off taking cab !!

Good tour and great way to spend an afternoon. Houses along the way are we f interest. Comments by the crew helped make the trip worthwhile. Lots of interesting things to stop and see along way.

Awesome. My sister, niece, and her friend were in town and wanted something nice to do. I took them on the FtL water taxi, and stopped at the last stop, Bokampers. Then we took it back. We had an amazing time and the 1st mate’s sightseeing tour along the way was awesome and hilarious.
