See Ft Lauderdale by Water Taxi

Sometimes known as the Venice of America, Fort Lauderdale benefits from being located along both the Intracoastal Waterway and the New River, providing a navigable waterway and network of marinas just inland from the Florida coast. Visitors to Fort Lauderdale can take advantage of this waterway by taking a scenic ride on the Water Taxi when traveling around the city.
The Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi service runs along the Intracoastal Waterway as far north as Oakland Park Boulevard, and as far south as Southeast 17th Street, and also along the New River into downtown Fort Lauderdale. There are several stops close to the beach, stops at the Convention Center, 15th St Fisheries, Las Olas Boulevard, as well as more stops in the downtown area. There are also Water Taxi stops at or close to several Fort Lauderdale hotels including Gallery ONE DoubleTree Suites, Bahia Cabana Days Inn, Bahia Mar Beach Resort, Hyatt Regency Pier 66, and Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina.
As well as being a unique way to travel, you can expect to have fun with the friendly crew who will keep you informed about the popular sites and attractions during your journey
Tickets are one price and are valid for the whole day, meaning that you can get on and off the boat as often as you like, so you can take the Water Taxi from your hotel and hop off for lunch downtown before heading to the beach for the afternoon, and then use the Water Taxi again to go out for dinner in the evening.
