Passengers cruise Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood Beach to see the sights, shop, gallery hop, visit restaurants and bars, and hit the beach. Water Taxi of Fort Lauderdale is more than a boat ride. It is also a convenient way to travel from place to place on South Florida’s intracoastal. With the New Happy Hour, passengers can create their own personalized “pub crawls.”
