We used this transportation as a recreational activity and it was just perfect. It was a short limited trip, but just breath taking. We were on a cruise and needed something to occupy a short period of time with a great view and a chance...More

We wanted to take a little tour around the harbour without spending a couple of hours out on the water. They took us out for 45 minutes. We asked for an hour but they could only do an hour and it was really nice. Took...More

Have used the ferry on occasion, most recently on a very cold evening and was convenient and fast! Twelve minutes to Halifax!

By getting the water taxi you save yourself time and money. By not having to worry about parking on the Halifax side when you go for the day. A good pair of sneakers and you are all set.

For whatever reason the water taxi is relatively unused in Halifax even though it is quicker and competitively priced with the ferry. I use it to travel home from work often and it's always on time. For $5 you can't beat it.

Fast, friendly, and convenient. You can call for reservation or walk up like we did. Stewart was great. $5.00 per person,one way and they can drop you off at a number of different spots on the Halifax side.

We took this boat over to McNab's Island. The ride was very fast and very bumpy. We rode the surface of the waves in a manner that made me very nervous. Clearly, I was the only one however. Everyone else in the boat was fine,...More

Took the water taxi for the first time tonight as an out-of-towner needing to get from Hali to Dartmouth and back. Only $5 each way and quick. Just call and ask for a pickup and they'll pick you up at certain docks. I think the...More
