Close-up View of the Yachting Capital of the World
We took a water taxi our second day in Ft. Lauderdale. We learned why Ft. Lauderdale is the Yacht Capital of the World. Our guides were great (we got off for a bit at two stops). They pointed numerous $100 million+ yachts and told about their owners and the $100 million mansions owned by celebrities along the way. There are stops that are within walking distance of the beach, are places to feed tarpon, as well as 30,000-acre nature preserve. We never had to wait long for the next taxi. We highly recommend it!

What a great day.
The staff is very friendly and informative. The web site doesn't make it easy to know weather you are planning to go "up' or down". Which is what is asked of you at each stop. The staff explain it very well and the service is very reliable. We have done it 2 days now and yesterday we were on and off it all day. Ending it with happy hour at Shooters, Highly recommend this service.

This is by far one of the best ways to wend an afternoon in Fort Lauderdale!
We booked a private tour for the MIAMI Association of Realtors and our guests had nothing but great comments from about their experience on the water taxi. The crew was hilarious and welcomed our staff to guide the tour in collaboration with their tour guide. it was a perfect combination of history and real estate in the beautiful city of Fort Lauderdale The bonus was not simply the on board bar but the on-board central air conditioning-the cherry on top!

The water taxi was super fun, definitely an activity you shouldn't miss out on while in town!
It is such a good price for an all day ride. There are many stops to hop off at and explorer and you an jump right back on at any timer We also saw a dolphin swimming at one point, and the boat passes through a small manatee area (though we didn't see any that day) you never know what marine life may appear!

"another beautiful day with out of town guests"
As a Fort Lauderdale local, we had another beautiful day with out of town guests on the Water Taxi. Always lovely to park at Birch park and grab the water taxi at Stop #8.
