The Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi will once again be offering its Holiday Lights Tour. This unique and popular holiday attraction is a great way to see the elaborately decorated homes along the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW). Along the route, guests will be able to take part in Christmas carol sing-alongs, sip holiday drinks (adult and kid-friendly versions) and snack on complimentary popcorn.

This one-of-a-kind Christmas light viewing experience is available on select nights Monday, December 5 through Wednesday, December 21. Choose from convenient 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. departure times along with extended dates. Tours last about an hour and a half.

Per the press release …

“We had an amazing response last year to our Holiday Lights Tour from both locals and visitors alike,” said Mike McGurl, co-owner of Water Taxi. “So for 2016, we’ve decided to extend our offerings for this special service and invite everyone to take this exciting cruise and experience the true spirit of the holidays in Fort Lauderdale with Water Taxi.”

Board the festively decorated 65-foot double decker Water Taxi Island Discovery Boat at Stop #6, which is located next to the 17th Street Causeway Bridge and the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina Hotel. The Water Taxi’s boarding dock at Stop #6 can accommodate wheelchairs and is located next to a city parking lot. Boarding for water taxi’s Holiday Lights Tour begins 20 minutes before departure, and the service runs rain or shine. The water taxi does have indoor weather-protected seating.

Holiday Lights Tour tickets are now available for purchase. Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for kids. It’s a good idea to pre-order tickets as the capacity for each tour is limited.

Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi puts you right out there on the water for a unique perspective of holiday lights and decorations along the waterways of Fort Lauderdale. It makes a great Christmas outing for church groups, families, co-workers and other group gatherings.

Please note: The Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi will be closed on Saturday, December 10, 2016 for the Winterfest Boat Parade.
