Captain’s Tip:  We have several craft ready to serve your special event needs:

  • Anchorage Shuttle – within San Francisco Anchorage
  • Swim Escort Boat – Each year we serve many swim clubs with support for special event swims.
  • Party or Event Excursions – Consider an alternative to the annual office celebrations – How about lunch on the Bay? or in Sausalito, Larkspur or Tiburon?  Give us a call.
  • Ash Scattering:  Our boat-size and one-hour rates help keep this  special moment intimate and affordable.
  • Family Gathering?  Add us to the agenda!  Let’s talk about a charter event just for your clan.
  • Introduce the youngest generation to the San Francisco Bay.
  • Let’s not forget the 30-minute Emerald Lady Historic San Francisco Waterfront Excursion leaving from Pier 39, Dock C.  Our 16-passenger gem is perfect to introduce children to San Francisco without breaking the bank. [Note: Seating capacity subject to required Social Distancing to insure passenger and crew safety.]
For your safety and ours, we do not operate when conditions warrant.

San Francisco Water Taxi may be “The Best Kept Secret in San Francisco”.  We feel it is time to change that and need your help.  Let your friends and family know about this family- and tourist-friendly way to see the San Francisco Waterfront.

Check out our schedulee and rates if you up for an outing.  Call first our Water Taxi Captains can tell you how and where the best or next hop-on location.  Remember, it is especially important to call if you want to get picked up at one of our ‘whistle stops”:  Pier 39 and Pier 15 – The Exploratorium.

For special events, shuttles, or escorts; email us the details so we can find out how we might be of service.

We offer a scheduled hop-on hop-off service all day with a one time low and efficient cost. We even allow dogs onboard for free! Rather than sitting in bumper to bumper traffic for hours on the Embarcadero, or walking crowded streets of the city, we hope you join us aboard the beautiful waters of the Lil’ Taxi!
