New York Water Taxi and Circle Line Downtown
New York Water Taxi has entertained millions of visitors to New York since 2002, beginning with a spunky fleet of five distinctive black-and-yellow-checkered vessels. The eco-conscious crew first began by chauffeuring passengers between Brooklyn and downtown, but the business quickly expanded as locals and tourists demanded to see all of New York's mammoth manmade beauty such as the city skyline, Brooklyn Bridge, Empire State Building, and Ellis Island from its treasured natural waterways. New York Water Taxi is the better way to see NYC — providing exciting ways to navigate and experience NYC aboard iconic, exciting, and comfortable boats!
