EXPLORE South Florida from The Water Taxi. Your Water Taxi ticket lets you on and off its stops all day while taking in the sights along Fort Lauderdale’s world famous waterways, which have earned the city the nickname, “The Venice of America”.


Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi

Water Taxi

The Water Taxi is like a trolley-on-the-water. Board a Water Taxi at any of our stops and purchase your ticket onboard, cash or credit card. Then choose which stops you’d like to explore, and hop off to check out Fort Lauderdale’s  attractions, shopping and dining. Hop back on and head to your next stop, or just sit back and enjoy the ride.

There are multiple routes to choose from that give you access to both Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale’s beaches, world-class shopping and dining, and the many cultural and historical options in both cities — all for one low price! On every Water Taxi you will have unparalleled views of Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood!

Not sure where to go?

The Water Taxi main route travels in two directions, Upbound and Downbound. Downbound takes you down to the New River,  and the downtown Fort Lauderdale and the Las Olas area. Upbound takes you “up” north, towards the Galleria Mall and Shooters Restaurant. There is also the Hollywood Route, which heads south to Hollywood Beach.

Our crew will happily help you plan your day as you cruise past many interesting sites from million-dollar mansions to mega yachts. They will also highlight our Cruise & Save program, with over 50 of the hottest restaurants, bars and attractions located steps from our stops that offer Water Taxi Guest a sensational discount. The Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi runs year-round, with the following changes in schedule: Thanksgiving, the annual Winterfest Boat Parade, and New Year’s Eve we close early; Christmas day we are closed, and during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show we have limited service to only a few stops and the main boat show venues.

If you are interested in a night trip, try our Moonlight Madness deal! Adult and Senior tickets purchased on-board after 5 PM are all priced at just $15.00. Perfect for anyone looking to enjoy a night out on the town
and on the water!
