Water Taxi

We travelled the Intracoastal waterway on the Water Taxi. It was a great hour travelling offering views of beautiful homes and amazing yatchs. The water appeared clean.

Best way to see the sights and mega ships is via the water taxi. Take it to the Hollywood Broadwalk.

We took a taxi and we rented a boat. Both very awesome. There are places along the intracoastal to stop for food and the houses are amazing.

We really enjoyed the water taxi. It took us down the intercoastal waterway, and we could get on and off as we liked. You were able to see some fantastic homes, and beautiful yachts.

We took the Water Taxi from our hotel and spent the entire day seeing Fort Lauderdale from the intracoastal waterways. After dinner we went back and saw it by night.
