Water Taxi – One of Baltimore’s Best Forms of Transportation

If you have ever been to Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, you probably noticed blue and white boats tooling around the harbor. Well, they are part of Baltimore’s Water Taxi Fleet! The Water Taxi is one of locals’ and visitors’ favorite ways to get around town from the Inner Harbor to the Fort McHenry National Monument and pretty much everywhere in between. There are 17 landings that the Water Taxi stops at so even if they don’t stop at the exact place you wish to go to, it will let you off somewhere close enough so that you will only have to walk a few blocks or less.

The landings? Here’s a list:

  • Landing 1: National Aquarium in Baltimore (a good stop for Power Plant Live, Port Discovery, and Little Italy)
  • Landing 2: Harborplace
  • Landing 3: Maryland Science Center ( (and Cross Street area restaurants and destinations as well as Federal Hill Park)
  • Landing 4: Rusty Scupper Restaurant (and Federal Hill area restaurants and destinations as well as Federal Hill Park)
  • Landing 5: Pier Five
  • Landing 7: Harbor East
  • Landing 8: Maritime Park
  • Landing 10: Tide Point (Under Armour facility and Locust point restaurants and destinations)
  • Landing 11: Fell’s Point
  • Landing 14: Captain James Landing
  • Landing 16: Canton Waterfront Park (a great stop for the bars and restaurants in Canton Square and Canton area shopping)
  • Landing 17: Fort McHenry National Monument

The Water Taxi runs 360 days a year (NOT on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve, or New Years Day) and the time schedule changes depending on what time of year it is so be sure to check the schedule at he Water Taxi website. You can also see the Water Taxi Route Map as well. As for tickets and pricing, there are One Way Passes and All Day Passes rated for adults and children as well as a variety of yearly Water Taxi ticket options so check out their ticket descriptions and pricing to see what works for you. Be sure to have cash on hand if you plan to purchase your ticket on the boat. At this time, you can only use a credit or debit card if you purchase your tickets at a ticket kiosk in the Inner Harbor or online.
