Baltimore is steeped in a proud and rich nautical tradition. For more than 35 years, the Baltimore Water Taxi's blue and white fleet has proven itself to be an integral part the city's history and culture. In fact, we're as much a part of the city's history as the revitalized Inner Harbor.But the Water Taxi is more than a jaunt across the harbor; it's a Baltimore institution and a way of life. Everyday, thousands of residents and visitors not only rely on us to take them safely to their destinations, they appreciate our knowledge of the area and our courteous service. And everyday, hundreds of local businesses rely on us to deliver customers to their locations. We know the city. We love the city. We keep the city moving. We help keep businesses thriving. And most importantly, we offer the most unique way to see Baltimore and we provide an unforgettable experience that keeps our passengers coming back again and again. Welcome to Baltimore. Welcome aboard!

I use to ride it daily when i was in the city, but they started this new "Happy hour" thing, where they were pushing you to go to bars and "Drink with them" It just seems odd that a form of transportation is interested in getting people to do to Happy Hour. It seems like some fraternity or sorority took over marketing. I hope they get back to what they do best and that is move people. Not try to be a social media darling and an excuse for Happy Hour parties.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you feel our social media has detracted from the service. I want to assure you this is not the case. We are still committed to providing our customers with safe, professional, and efficient service both on land and water. our "Happy Hour" campaign is designed to showcase our advertisers listed in the Water Taxi guide. Some of these advertiser are bars and restaurants but not all of them. Family friendly "Happy Hour" locations are schedule this summer (posted on Twitter & Facebook). Also, during these events we will offer participants a deeply discounted Frequent Floater Individual/Buddy/Family Pass, coupons, and an assortment of game prizes.

During our July 2013 vacation we took one day to make use of the Water Taxi service. A true bargain at 12 dollars a day, which starts at 10 a.m. and runs all the way till 11 p.m. We started in the inner harbor and went to Fort McHenry (requires a transfer at the Fells Point taxi stop). No problem. After Fort McHenry we returned to Fells Point and began our tour of the area. After a bit of shopping (and buying) we returned to the taxi stand and got on the boat which headed to Canton Waterfront Park and then on to Captain James Landing where we feasted on the crabs. The Crab Shack is 20 feet from the taxi stand (dock) and is very laid back. For us whenever we wanted to move on, it was a short wait until the taxi showed up and took us on our way. It you use the Water Taxi they give you a list of coupons that are worth the effort to use. One word of caution would be to call ahead to insure they are still in business. A few locations we had heard about and were looking to check out had been closed. The water taxi is a definate winner when it comes to price and performance while on vacation within the Inner Harbor area.

We had an awesome ride from Fort McHenry to Fells Point on the water taxi. Convenient and reasonably priced as we rode all afternoon for $12 between. If you are visit on a weekend with temperatures over 100 degrees, walking can wear you out. When we visited Inner Harbor, It was an extremely hot summer day but the water taxi made it comfortable to go from place to place. The boats are modern, the staff was very courteous, and it was very convenient. I will definitely ride the boat the next time I am at the Harbor again

Not your typical water taxi, in a bad way. No hailing VHF channel or dockside point to point service. It's not really a taxi, but a water shuttle instead between predetermined locations only.
Response from the owner - 3 years ago
Gela – You are absolutely correct. We operate more like a ‘Water Bus’ system with designate routes, Landings (stops), and transfer points. Since a majority of the promenade surrounding the Baltimore Harbor is owned by the City, its use and our ability to pickup/drop-off is restricted. As far as an ‘on-call’ service with ‘point-to-point’ service – stay tuned. We are working on that for the 2012 season.

Don't use for any special events. I have been waiting for the taxi for over an hour and I am writing this review while I continue waiting. Only use if you like to wait.
Response from the owner - 3 years ago
Waiting in Bmore – We apologize for your long wait. We truly want you to have an enjoyable experience in Baltimore and on our boats. September 4, 2011 was the very first Baltimore Grand Prix and a lot of ticket holders chose to ride the Water Taxi in order to avoid traffic. Unfortunately, this created unusually high traffic for the boats. Our typical wait time at a Landing is between 15 and 20 minutes during the summer season. We know if given another chance, you will come to believe that we truly are coolest distance between two points.
