With hearts of a seadog and brains steeped in local history, Water Taxi’s fleet of puddle pilots lets riders cruise in informative luxury. Skiff surfers can depart from two locations in Hollywood Beach with an all-day pass, and undertake unlimited exploration of attractions sprinkled throughout Fort Lauderdale’s historic waterways. If you’d rather wander to more distant waters, embark on the Water Taxi’s South Beach Express day-trip service, departing from the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center. After a morning jaunt to Miami, travelers can soak up the sun’s slobber on South Beach before cooling down at an Ocean Drive café. Upon returning to Fort Lauderdale in the evening, riders receive free Water Taxi service to their original departure locations.

Water Taxi operates like a tourist trolley on the water and makes it interesting in a way no land vehicle can, affording unique views of mansions, yachts, and Birch State Park’s natural landscape as well as bustling Fort Lauderdale. The destinations tend to be equally scenic. As it travels throughout Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood, Water Taxi makes 20 stops at places ranging from beautiful beaches to acclaimed restaurants.
Hitting them all is easy with hop-on, hop-off service, which makes it convenient for waterfront residents and visitors to get around. Riders can pick up tickets on board, online, or at several area hotels. In addition to the regular schedule, captains guide Water Taxi's vessels for private chartered voyages and scavenger hunts.
