The Water Taxi
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”.
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! Not all Water Taxis make every stop — but on every Water Taxi you will have unparalleled views of Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood!
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! Tickets purchased on-board after 5 PM
are all priced at the children’s rate – $13.00. Perfect for anyone looking to enjoy a night out on the town
and on the water!
The Carrie B runs three daily narrated sightseeing cruises of Fort Lauderdale, departing year-round from downtown Ft Lauderdale’s New River Docks. We take you along the Intracoastal Waterway and into Port Everglades – home of the world’s busiest cruise ship port. You will see the elaborate mansions and celebrity homes of Millionaires Row and you’ll get up close to the massive yachts docked outside these homes and at Bahia Mar Marina, Hyatt Pier 66 and the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Grande. We’ll take you by the ever-changing gallery of the world’s largest cruise ships in the world. The photo opportunities are endless!
The Jungle Queen
Welcome to the JungleQueen Riverboat’s Official Website Click for animated video
Sail up the river, with a pleasant and humorous commentary given by the captain about the many interesting sights and beautiful homes you will see. It is amazing how many people put on their lights and wave a welcome each night. There is a certain stillness in nature’s way of things that lazily awakens the quiet approach of the Riverboat, and then as you pass, goes back to slumber again.
The boat docks and with a friendly “ALL ASHORE” by the captain, and you are directed to the uniquely different dining room where a delicious dinner of barbeque ribs, chicken, and steamed shrimp and all the trimmings has been prepared. The service plates are passed again and again until you’ve had all you want to eat. Cash or credit card are O.K., alcoholic beverages are extra.
Either one of these is a really fun way to spend your time and see things you might not otherwise see.
