    Water Taxi

    by Dabs Updated Sep 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The water taxis are a fun way to get from the Inner Harbor area to various points on the water such as Fell's Point, Canton, Little Italy and Fort McHenry. An all day pass cost $8 (didn't appear to be any way just to get a one way fare) and the water taxis are fairly frequent, one pulls out and another pulls in. Buy your tickets on board

    But I learned the hard way that they weren't the fastest method of transportation, I just missed one and then we waited for about 15 minutes to gather people, another 15 minutes to get to Tide Point (2nd stop) and another 15 minutes to walk to LP Steamers which appeared to be 2 blocks on the Water Taxi map but about 12 blocks in reality. Fortunately, they saved me some crabs :-)

    On a sunny leisurely day, this would be a fun way to see the city and get some pictures of the Inner Harbor. I imagine some people just do a round trip on it for the boat ride.

    I didn't have the opportunity to try out the water taxi, but they are available. At this time, an all day, unlimited ride, adult ticket is $9.00. 4 basic routes can get you at or close to several tourist spots in, and around the Inner Harbor.

    Water Taxis at the Inner Harbor

    by jelw Updated Jan 22, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This form of transportation is vast improvement over driving. I strongly urge you to purchase a pass when you first arrive in Baltimore. You can then use the taxis from almost every wharf as often as you like for the whole day.

    Taxi around in style via the water taxi

    by staindesign Written Aug 11, 2013

    If it isn't obvious, I loved the water taxi. It was a very cool way to get around and see parts of the city you wouldn't normally see without it. It is convenient & affordable. And the taxi drivers were very helpful, to get to some locations you must make connections at different landings and take a second water taxi. For example, when visiting Ft. McHenry, that requires a connection.

    The Deal:
    $7 one way
    $12 all day hop on & off
    The all day is clearly the better deal. These are adult prices. Children's tickets exist up to age 12.
    Supposedly, the taxi's come every 20 mins. That isn't quite accurate, probably 2 times per hour is a better bet.
    10am-11pm Summer Hours
    11am-6pm Winter Hours

    *Please check the web site for all 17 taxi stops.
    **Don't miss Fells Point, it is one of the cutest stops with shops, bars, and restaurants.
    ***Capt. James Landing has a great all you can eat crabs $29.99 per person. (See my Capt James tip for more details)

    If you're planning a day at the inner harbor, make sure you buy a day-pass on a water taxi. There are two competative companies, but they both make the same basic stops.
