Manasquan Water Taxi's captains helm an aquatic fleet designed to ferry families and friend on maritime adventures. Throughout the harvest season, guests 21 years and older can board the hayride bar cruise, which departs every hour each evening beginning at 6 p.m. Seafarers jive to tunes spun by live DJs aboard the reveling riverboat while sipping on a complementary cocktail and telling scary stories of yachts overrun with ghosts on vacation. The boat leaves from the Brielle Yacht Club and stops at a trio of alehouses along the river during its one-hour loop.
The kid-focused, pirate-themed Treasure Island tour transports families and nostalgic, out-of-work boatswains back to a more adventurous era. Each attending tyke dons an included bandanna and temporary tattoo to lend swashbuckling verisimilitude to the one-hour hunt for hidden treasures, which includes the chance to win a Baha DR49 dirt bike or a fun-filled lesson about the dangers of pirate culture. A complimentary soda keeps young ones refreshed and ready for a second treasure hunt in a scenic, autumnal pumkin patch complete with take-home pumpkin. The cruise runs from Monday, September 26th through Monday, October 31st.
Manasquan Water Taxi
Manasquan Water Taxi is a 40-foot riverboat. The wide, low-riding vessel has an open-air deck shaded by a canopy, and colored light from neon signs casts a glow on the water’s ripples. The water taxi cruises at up to 25 miles per hour, ferrying riders between bars and restaurants, to islands, beneath fireworks, and over any wimpier boats in its way. A sound system turns the boat into a floating boom box, and riders can drink at the full bar onboard and nibble hot dogs and subs.
