Very helpful and friendly.

A good way to see the waterways of Fort Lauderdale, but beware of being stranded. We were waiting to catch a taxi at one of the stations late in the day and when it arrived there were only 20 spaces but there were many more people waiting. The queueing or waiting in line was not very orderly since some people were waiting in the shade. Since the taxis only ran about every half hour, if you are on a tight time schedule, be aware. They say that they will give priority to people who already have tickets but this was never the case. There were no checks on boarding and tickets were checked or sold when already on board or under way.

too long a wait between taxis, waited an additional hour at one stop after getting off and having lunch. If they want to get a four or five star review they need to up their game with the wait time. Two people at stop took a taxi because they had been waiting over an hour and a half and the boat that came was full and could only take five people. NOT ENOUGH BOATS!

The ride was good. The driver gave lots of information. The only downside was that we stood at a stop for just over a half hour before being picked up.

Excellent tour worth every penny. Great staff.

Not all water taxi rides are the same. The quality of the ride depends upon the knowledge of the crew member giving the commentary. Took an out of town guest on two rides: the first ride from Shooters to Las Olas was awesome, the second ride from Las Olas to Shooters was terrible. Called Water Taxi to report the offensive behavior of the crew member and have yet to hear back from them.

Great trip, you can hop on and off all day, reasonably priced.

, Sep 2017

Taxi ride and condition of the boats were good overall. However, it is very difficult to predict what time a taxi will arrive. I tried to download their iphone app, but it did not include the actual taxi times. This lead to very long waits 45 min or longer at times with no knowledge on when the next water taxi would arrive.

Worth the money.
