We arrived early and asked restaurant staff where to wait for the water taxi. When he arrived he refused to approach the dock and pick us up. Restaurant staff had assured us that they would stop for us, even though dock space was limited. We are under the impression that other employees who pilot the boat are more interested in... More

We picked the water taxi up at Tin City and floated around for a while checking out the Naples harbor, boats and houses. Cost $7.00 per person. Make sure they stamp your hand. Great way to get around and you can pick back up at different locations. No charge. Fun way to just pass the time on vacation. Will use... More

Stuffed sole was the special and it was delicious. A hearty portion, attractively served. It came with two sides and a salad. Tasty vegetable medley was cooked crisp tender and homemade balsamic salad dressing was very good. Casual atmosphere and good food for a reason reasonable price. We will definitely return.

Might have been nice if the boat had shown up... Seems to be a recurring Yelp comment. Arrived 20 minutes early for 8:44 pick up reflected on shuttle schedule.Called shuttle directly at 8:50 and were told that was the final drop off - not pick up as stated on schedule and since there were no guests to drop off, the...

The service closes daily at 8:45pm. If you had arrived one loop earlier (8:00) we would of been happy to take you for a 45 minute ride. Our hours are posted at the top of the schedule, on our website, and on our phone message. More

This was fun and only $7.00 per person to ride around the Naples bay. The boat stops at nine restaurants along the way. If the boat is full when you want to return to the city dock you could have a 45 minute wait before the boat comes back around so plan accordingly.

Naples Bay Water Shuttle is a great service to get to some of the best bars and restaurants around Naples bay. It's also a very nice way to travel around the bay in a boat instead of walking or going by car.

We found that the Water taxi scheduled for 1:45 left at 1:39. You need to be there early in order to catch the taxi. Unfortunately for us, we had a member of our group arrive at 1:40 for the 1:45, so we missed the taxi that left at 1:39. We waited an additional 45 min to get on the next... More

Although it is advertised as $7 for a ticket that is good all-day and you can get off and back on at as many stops as you like, it turns out that in-season it is only good for one round-trip. The 45-minute round trip is a pleasant way to sea Naples bay from the water.
