New York Water Taxi
Hop aboard these environmentally friendly twin-hulled catamarans sporting black and white checks and enjoy the ride.
Their daily tours include the All-Day Access Pass and Statue by Night cruises. Other seasonal cruises include Audubon EcoCruises, Fall Foliage, 4th of July and New Year's.
New York Water Taxi also runs a daily shuttle from Wall Street's Pier 11 in Manhattan to Brooklyn's IKEA Home furnishings store! Landing right at the IKEA store's own dock in Red Hook, the IKEA Express allows passengers a convenient way to shop – no cars, no trains, no costly ground taxis! Bring back as much as will fit in your blue IKEA bag, or have your furniture delivered by the IKEA store.
"Good way to see New York from the water. The water taxi takes you around Brooklyn, Mid-town, Chelsea, Wall Street and Battery Park. There is a guide that provides commentary along the way which provides a lot of valuable historical information." -kevinyhli, TripAdvisor reviewer
"This is a must do if you visit New York. Patrick the taxi tour guard was hilarious but very informative too. The fact you can hop on and hop off is a great idea too. The views are amazing and Patrick was helpful taking family photos for those that wanted them. Toilets are clean and drinks available to purchase too."-Lesley L, TripAdvisor reviewer
