New York Water Taxi and Circle Line Downtown
New York Water Taxi has been a fixture in New York since 2002, beginning with a spunky fleet of five distinctive black-and-yellow-checkered vessels. Today, the iconic 12 vessel fleet also includes the ZEPHYR and SHARK speedboat thrill ride. 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.
Knowledgable and entertaining guides narrate tours while patrons can indulge in a cash bar that provides refreshments along the way. Popular touring sites include Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum, Times Square/Broadway, Hudson River Park, and South Street Seaport, to name a few.
