The Water Taxi Miami is existing now for the 3rd year, we offers a single or round trip water taxi service in the Miami area. We have specific drop off and pickup locations in these area's. The benefit of using the water taxi in Miami is to use the natural environment the water instead of using individual cars to move to and from different key locations in Miami and Miami Beach.

Water Taxi Miami introduced last December our Xpress service. Your private captain will on our 6 or less passenger Water Taxi Xpress and speeds up to 35mph over the water to accessible water front destination.

Close to water :)

Closer to water than other big cruising ships. I and my mom enjoyed it. You can come back to market, or be dropped off at south beach with half the price

Took the ride from Bayside to Miami Beach marina. Hot sunny afternoon. There was shade on board and a great breeze with the scent of seawater. Went by the mouth of the Miami River, past the huge port cranes, got a great view of downtown and Fisher Island. Best part was the dolphins that swam across our path and then... More

The water taxi ride in Miami's is nothing short of amazing! The wind whipping around you and the water from the ocean splashing all over you, makes this ride magical. The rocking of the water taxi (not too much), passing the lovely private boats anchored along the way and the slight taste of salt always present on your lips makes... More

I took the "xpress" private charter for an hour. For $120 I felt it was very reasonable. The captain was knowledgeable. He didn't want to go too far out because of the heavy chop. He was right. My issue was the condition of the boat, it was dirty with big cracks in the seat cushions. If you want something inexpensive,... More

Our group joined to celebrate a friend's birthday with a different approach and really enjoyed the ride. It was pleasant and different. Will do it again! It is a nice way to see things that as residents do not get to see every day.

The bayfront itself is pretty touristy. Dealers are trying to lure one into their of shops. However, this is also the location for a ride with the Miami Water Taxi. You can either do a round trip or simply get back to South Beach. If you go on a round trip you have a fantastic view onto the city from... More

First let me say the Captain and boat ride both directions were very smooth, comfortable, and entertaining at $15 per person per trip. Second, I can not say much for a business running on time. Our tickets were purchased for the 11AM departure some 20 minutes prior at a booth away from the taxi. We arrived prior to the boat... More
