Somewhere between a water-based bus line and open air adventure, the Baltimore Water Taxi is the fun, fast and affordable way to navigate the city. Operating with a crew of licensed Captains and a fleet of USCG inspected commercial passenger vessels along dedicated routes servicing fixed stops in/around the Baltimore harbor. Tickets can be purchased once you board a boat using cash or credit card (only). The $14 ADULT ALL DAY TICKET is by far our most popular option for those passengers looking to explore the many attractions that outline the Baltimore Harbor. Adult passenger will be able to ride the Water Taxi to all 13 of our stops as many times as you like for the entire day. You also get our exclusive "Letter of Marque" coupon book with tons of savings within walking distance from our stops. The $8 ADULT ONE WAY TICKET is perfect for those riders who know where they're going and want to get there in a stress free environment. Good for a single trip with a known destination. The $7 CHILDREN'S TICKET is for those passengers ages 3 to 10. It is valid for both a One Way and All Day passage provided the rider is accompanied by an adult ticket holder. All Children's Tickets have a coupon on the reverse side.

The Water Taxi is a must! Began our trip at the Inner Harbor and went to Fort Mc Henry. Very reasonable prices. Saw the Blue Angels and the USS Zumwalt - a glorious day!

You can go all over the harbor with the water taxi. My kids love to ride the boat all day. It's great and it saves you walking. Who doesn't love to be out on the water? The captains are so nice and knowledgeable.

I took this taxi to Fell's Point and to Little Italy which was a great inexpensive way to get across the Harbor. Just beware of the run times. If you want to stay out later you will have to Uber it back.

If you can take a harbor connector do it, but they only seem to run at heavy traffic times with a break around 11-2. Water taxi runs all day to several points and they will help you get wherever you need to go. $14 for a day pass and you can ride all over. The guys running the boats were... More

The water taxi in the Inner Harbor is really convenient and saves a lot of walking. A worthwhile way to jump around the harbor.

Very nice peaceful ride in the Inner Harbor. Staff was very polite and non narratated which I like. Takes 30 minutes to see all the area but very inexpensive to get an all day pass to just get off and on.
