Missed the harbor tours and it was our first day and VERY hot so we wanted to be on the water. Great trip. dolphins galore. Got off at Patriot's Point for a drink and snack. What fun!

As locals, we're always looking for ways to show our boys the beauty of where we live, and the water taxi was a great choice. We took the taxi from Patriots Point to downtown, and it was fast and fun. Definitely something we'll do again b/c sometimes it's nice not to fight traffic and pay to park in a garage.

The water taxi is the best way to get to Patriot's Point. It's timely and an enjoyable trip across the harbor! The crew was very pleasant and genuine!

My husband and I enjoyed the Water Taxi ride - we saw fishermen catch a shark, dolphins swimming while on our way to the USS Yorktown.
