Secure your All-Day Access Pass for a trip on the waterways in and around Gotham! Sit outside on the top deck or chill inside with the air conditioning cranked on a hot summer day as the New York City & New Jersey skyline slides by. The complete ride takes only 90 minutes but the Water Taxi’s unique hop-on/hop-off feature means that the trip can take as long as you want it to – you have the entire day! The entire voyage will be narrated by a knowledgeable and entertaining guide and there is also a fully-stocked cash bar on board in case you’d like to freshen up with a refreshing beverage. You’ll learn everything you ever wanted to know about destinations like the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Governors Island and DUMBO. Please Note: Adjusted or special schedules for holidays, special events or inclement weather will be posted as far in advance as possible! Check www.nywatertaxi.com

Here are a few reviews of people who’ve taken the plunge and purchased All-Day Access Pass Discount Tickets:
“After a long day wandering NY, I had hoped to take a ride around the waters to view the NY skyline and the Statue of Liberty right before sundown. We initially had another company in mind to do our boat ride, but they were already closed and we missed the last departure,” wrote one reviewer on Yelp. “But then that's where the New York Water Taxi came to the rescue…There is no point in telling you the stops or the times, just check out their website. I'm glad I used the New York Water Taxi, and I would recommend it as well to others.”
“Must-DO!! I've been to New York City twice now and this is the 1st time that I've done the NY Water Taxi,” wrote someone else. “The views were great! The whole trip takes about an hour and a half from start to finish, but you can get off at any location and get on another water taxi to continue…”
