Owner description: 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.

We got the water taxi from the inner harbour to canton, with a transfer at fells point. It was inexpensive and we got a coupon for a bunch of different restaurants and attractions in the area.

The problem was that we were told the last boat left canton at 10:30pm, so we arrived at 10:15pm and waited until 11:00pm and the boat never showed up! We had to take a taxi back to our hotel, which made the water taxi tickets we bought a waste of money.

I'd use the water taxi again, but Id make sure I looked up the schedule myself beforehand.

The water taxi is an affordable ride with friendly staff. We didn't go very far through the Harbour. Round trip probably took 15-20 minutes. We probably should have done more research before buying a pass for the water taxi. You can get off close to shopping and restaurants but if you just want to ride and sight see, this isn't the best approach. If you to shop and eat, buy a ticket and enjoy the ride.

It was so relaxing to go out on the water on their boats and go from stop to stop. They did a great job with their boarding and unboarding and the workers were knowledgeable and friendly.

You pay a flat price and can ride back/forth all day. Little Italy, Fort McHenry, Inner Harbor and more are all accessible via the water taxi. At night, the lights are lovely.

For only $12 you can be ferried from place to place and see many of the Inner Harbor's sites w/o looking for places to park and paying parking fees.

From Fort McHenry to the Inner Harbor and everywhere in between, the Baltimore Water Taxi will take you to the finest attractions, restaurants, bars, shopping areas and historical places in Baltimore. Their landings( Aquarium, Harborplace, Science Center, Rusty Scupper, Pier Five, Fort McHenry, etc.) offer an opportunity to explore the unique neighborhoods that make up the character of Baltimore’s Waterfront. If you have kids they will like the ride and see a bit of Charm City at the same time. There is no better way to get around Baltimore and experience the beauty of the harbor at the same time. You may have to wait a few minutes but it is worth it.
