9.- Fort Lauderdale, Water Taxi

Menu

It is possible to rent a boat in Fort Lauderdale and travel along this protected channel between the mainland and the ocean. The water taxi runs from the center of Fort Lauderdale to the end of the New River, giving a tour of homes along the way. A water bus takes a route from the beach to the downtown, traveling in about forty minutes a distance of 5 miles (8 km). In addition to the water taxi, there are small boats that we can ride on from local restaurants, such as Shirttail Charlie's. The boat leaves the restaurant every half hour (between 6 and 9 p.m.) and we can go on a 15-minute trip up the river, then turn around. The Charlie boat also crosses the New River to bring us to the Riverfront Mall and shopping center (23 movie screens!), and we just give the captain a tip ($1 per person is recommended the water taxi costs up to $5 for a one-way trip!)
