Water Taxi – Think of the Water Taxi as your trolley on the water. Since Fort Lauderdale is the "Venice of America," there is no better way to enjoy Venice than by your water borne trolley. Cruise Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood Beach to see the best sights, visit restaurants and hit the beach. Water Taxi is so much more than just a boat ride. Water Taxi has vessels available for private and corporate charter and group charter. This is a very popular way to get your group from one waterfront location to another, or to create your perfect private event on the water. Visit http://watertaxi.com/ to learn more.
