If you are staying in Fort Lauderdale and want to make a day trip down to Hollywood then you can jump on the Water Taxi which will take you right there or if you are in Hollywood and want to go to Fort Lauderdale then you can do that too. Plus, it is a hop on, hop off with a few stops in between that you can explore along your way for as long as you want with a valid ticket.

Open from 10am - 10pm seven days a week (check their website for any changes / COVID restrictions), you can expect a boat to show up frequently throughout the 12 hour time frame. There are three routes that the ferry travels:

Fort Lauderdale / River Route

Pirate Republic Bar


Esplanade Park

Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina Hotel

Riverside Hotel & Stranahan House

Shops at Las Olas
