Minnesotans love the water and now you don’t need a boat to get out and enjoy it. The Minneapolis Water Taxi is a solar powered electric launch that is powered by the sun. The water taxi does mostly cruises for folks looking to get out on the water, but they are adding to their list of docking spots and stops along Minneapolis. The cruises are about an hour.
The Minneapolis Water Taxi takes people down the Mississippi River above Saint Anthony Falls. You’ll see beautiful views along the way. The taxi is for all ages and take up to six passengers per boat. If you really want to have a good time, you can bring your own food and drink.
Taxi pick up is at Boom Island Park in Minneapolis. Reservations are on the hour from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. A one hour cruise for six people is $60.
