Whether you’re looking for an inexpensive family outing, an introduction to the water, or a way to spice up your tours when relatives come to visit, the water taxi — in Annapolis or Baltimore — is a great place to start.

“You get a different perspective from the water,” says Susan Woody, an Annapolis mother of two teenagers, who started riding water taxis when her kids were toddlers. “It’s a lot of fun. The kids love it.”

The Baltimore and Annapolis water taxi services have stops close to restaurants, parks and other family-friendly destinations. Both the Annapolis Water Taxi and the Baltimore Water Taxi are designed to be family-friendly. Trips take about 15 minutes, and you usually won’t have to wait longer than that for a boat. However, if you want to get to a specific destination, check with the crew because you may need to change boats, especially in Baltimore.
