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.

Because it was December, the schedule for the water taxi wasn't extremely convenient since it didn't run as often as it does in the Spring and Summer. However, it did offer a nice option to getting around the harbor in lieu of walking. My only complaint was that neither the Captain nor his helper offered any commentary about the surrounding...

If you want to get to Ft. McHenry, Camden Yards, Inner Harbor, this is the way to go in the summer months. Nice, relaxing ride that will put you in convenient distance to walk to other attractions. Just a really great way to get around the Inner Harbor area, but it can get a little expensive. What the heck, splurge... More

We used the water taxis excessively. It's a fun way to get around. Really cheap, around $12 for an all day pass, well worth it. Pick up and drop off points easy to find, but wear walking shoes!

We rode the water taxi just to see the sights around Inner Harbor. The friendly red-haired lady was such a friendly and helpful person. We loved her!!! She made the trip even more enjoyable. Riding the taxi at sunset was a GREAT treat as well!!

We didn't have a car on this trip; we got day passes to the water taxi and were able to get everywhere we wanted to go for a very reasonable price. We appreciated that the captain took the time to point out attractions and explain the history of various points we were passing by - it made the taxi a... More

It was the last hours of a long day and we wanted to be sure we had not missed any of the sights so we boarded the Water Taxi with no destination in mind but to enjoy the ride and the scenery. We were not disappointed. It was relaxing and fun. We were able to see the sights from the... More

We walked most of the inner harbor, but the water taxi was a convenient way to get across the harbor and see wonderful views.

We rode the BWT one evening before it closed, we just rode it for fun, didn't get off at either stop until we reached our original boarding. It was peaceful, great way to interact with others on the boat. It carried and picked up people to deliver them to various stops around the harbor. It was a relaxing and enjoyable... More
