Didn't really care to go to the resort but wanted to take the ride just to see the island. $8 round trip which is not bad. Easy on and off, you might even get a tour guide to tag along and provide some cool stories...More

We used the Water Taxi a couple of times (we stayed on Paradise Island). It a nice ride to downtown, you get a good view of the shoreline. The taxis operate every 30 minutes so we never waited long to catch the next lift.
