Intracoastal Waterway Fort Lauderdale

Intracoastal Waterway, Fort Lauderdale, FL

The Basics

Aside from serving as a means of transportation, the Intracoastal Waterway offers countless opportunities for recreation, especially in Fort Lauderdale's year-round sunshine. From classy dinner and sightseeing cruises to riverfront gondola tours, visitors can enjoy the water in whatever fashion floats their boat as they travel past forested coasts at Port Everglades; high-end real estate at the famous Millionaires Row; luxury resorts at Hyatt Pier; the drawbridge at the 17th Street Causeway; and the entertainment complex at the Las Olas Riverfront. Didn't pack your sea legs? The water-wary can opt for a walking or Segway tour along the coast, or even see the sights from above on a helicopter excursion over turquoise waters.

Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi - All Day Pass
Great staff, very helpful and informative. Safe, clean operations. Manage expectations on timing. We waited at Stop #1 for over a half hour thinking it would start at 10am. Also don’t confuse the water trolley with the water taxi. The trolley is free and is run by the same company, but has a downtown route. We’ll run and managed. Capt Mike on the trolley was very informative.
