Keeping the kids entertained during the summer months can be challenging, that’s why the Water Shuttle, Fort Lauderdale’s newest water taxi service, has you covered. Now through September 30, 2016, children 15 years old and younger are invited to ride the bright hot pink Water Shuttle for free!


“The summer heat is drastically reduced when you’re out on the water,” said Karly Young, Operations Manager. “With the sea breeze in your hair, it’s a fun daytime activity to hop on the Water Shuttle, listen to the commentary and learn some interesting facts and stories about the history of City of Fort Lauderdale.”


The Water Shuttle operates bright hot pink boats that travel to eight different stops and one whistle stop along Fort Lauderdale’s New River and Intracoastal Waterway. Shuttles operate daily 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. All shuttles have awnings for shade cover.


“Spending the day with your children out on the water is an adventurous way for families to bond. We even provide a free pink lemonade to every passenger,” said Young. “At Marine Hospitality, we appreciate our customers and want to them enjoy our unique service with the kids.”


To take advantage of this offer each child must be accompanied by an adult. Adults can purchase an all-day hop on hop off pass for $20, senior citizen and military tickets are $18. The Water Shuttle’s hop on hop off experience is like no other, especially for families. The August summer promo savings is valued at $10-$20 per child, depending on the child’s age. Tickets for children under 12 regularly sell for $10, and ages 13 and older are valued at $20 per ticket.


Customers may purchase tickets online, onboard the Water Shuttle, or at the Water Shuttle and Riverfront Cruise kiosk located on the Riverwalk (located in Riverfront) at 300 S.W. First Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301. If purchasing online just show your ticket to board with your child.
