The weather is hot, the Mariners are hot and it’s time for the return of Metro’s hottest hit: “Water Taxi Summer!”
The Water Taxi is a cool way to beat the heat. It’s operating on its summer sailing season, with seven-days-a-week service to and from West Seattle, including midday sailings, and Friday and Saturday night service. Don’t forget your dog or cat, or your bike!
Hop aboard and enjoy a 15-minute ride across Elliott Bay while enjoying panoramic views of the Seattle city skyline, Mount Rainier and the Olympics. You can walk to the Mariners game or the Sounders match. When riding from downtown to West Seattle, you can take a shuttle from the Seacrest Dock that will take you to the West Seattle Junction (Route 773), or along Alki to the Admiral District (Route 775).
Adult fare on the Water Taxis is $5.75 cash one way ($5 with an ORCA card). No ORCA card? Download the Transit Go Ticket App on your mobile device for faster boarding. Passengers with lower incomes, seniors and riders with disabilities can apply for an ORCA LIFT card or Regional Reduced Fare Permit (RRFP) card using the Reduced Fare Portal. Youth ride for $3.75 with an ORCA Youth Card.
Beat the heat, ride the Water Taxi!
