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.

Wonderful views

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

The water taxi is a great way to get around. It makes getting around the Inner Harbor and its surrounding areas easy. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

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

We paid for the all day water taxi and went to see Fort McHenry, wandered around this cute little neighborhood, took in an open house just see what a row house looks like inside and then hopped back on the ferry for a ride around the harbor. Headed to Fell's Point for dinner. It was a beautiful day for the... More

Fast and dependable. Plus an unique way to travel around the harbor. Worth the price. Made travel fun.

We took the water taxi just to go from point to point, but this would be fun to travel the entire loop. The water taxi to Ft. McHenry doesn't run all season - just in warmer weather. Note - the taxi stops at dark so if you are heading to dinner somewhere for the evening, make other arrangements to return.... More

We enjoyed our convenient and beautiful boat ride around the harbor. Got us from Fell's Point to Inner Harbor. However, if there are several of you, it's much more expensive than taking a taxi. However, I think you can get a day's pass if you're going to travel several times.

A great way to get around Baltimore, Fells Point. Fun to sit and see the city in a different way, by water and easy to get to other areas a long walk away. Kids love the excitement of a boat ride!

The water taxi is a great way of seeing the harbour sights, and also very good if you have walked all around the harbour and are too tired to walk back !
