Charters & Groups

Take your experience on the water to the next level. Whether you're looking for a fun and different event space, a fun group activity, pier-to-pier event transportation, or scouting a new location for a video shoot, New York Water Taxi has a boat that will fit your needs. We depart from multiple piers throughout New York City, so chartering one of our boats is as convenient as they come! Our helpful team of sales agents are here to guide you every step of the way.

Boats for Every Occasion

  • Filming & Video Shoots: Looking to capture the perfect view of the New York City skyline? Look no further than chartering one of our boats. You'll be sure to get the perfect shot of our skyscrapers, bridges, and even the Statue of Liberty.

  • Groups, Schools & Universities: Book a group of 15 or more or charter an entire boat and make your next group or school outing one to remember! Tour guides are available for all sightseeing cruises.

  • Corporate & Social Events: Treat your employees to a night on the water or host a unique event of your own.

  • Weddings & Private Events: Host an unforgettable experience on the water with all of your loved ones. We offer catering and beverage packages for all types of events.

  • Pier-to-Pier Transportation: Not interested in an event but need a convenient way to get from A to B? Charter a boat to transport your guests to and from piers. Just board and you'll be on your way - it's that easy!

About Our Boats
