Harbor Water Taxi is Temporarily Out Of Service
Good news! After receiving notification from the US Coast Guard in April 2020, that the District’s water taxi program was not subject to regulations as an inspected vessel under 46 CFR Subchapter T – Small Passenger Vessels, the program has been given the green light to resume operations. We anticipate the water taxi will be in operation in Summer 2021.
Staff is currently working with representatives from Fiesta Marine Products to finalize design plans and specifications for a new water taxi to replace the District’s 1967 vessel Free Ride I, which has reached the end of its service life.
The District looks forward to restoring the water taxi program, which is beloved by many slip renters, visitors, and community members. This new vessel will serve the needs of the District for decades to come.
