Water Taxi's to Water Taxi Beach

Water Taxi Beach is about to enter it's 4th season. Each season has been unique and wonderful. However, the biggest disappointment is often when we tell customers that taking a water taxi to Water Taxi Beach isn't always possible.

For the 2008 season, this is going to change. There will be two different ways to take a water taxi to the beach.

There is the Hop on/ Hop Off service. This is regular scheduled ferry service that will run through the summer. This service runs 7 days a week.

It typically starts mid morning and end about 7 or 8 pm. In 2007 the service arrived at Water Taxi Beach on an hourly basis. There are 4 fare zones.

  • From E. 34th St, the fare is $5
  • From any other location, the fare is $10
  • $20 buys an unlimited one day pass
  • $25 buys an unlimited two day pass

On Friday nights from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend, there will be a special shuttle that will run continuously from East 34th St and Water Taxi Beach (Hunter's Point).

It will start approx. at 9:15 pm. It will end at midnight on Friday and 1am on Saturday. The round trip fare is $10.
