For some, the Inner Harbor’s Water Taxi boats are an icon of summer in Baltimore, but owner Michael McDaniel wants to convince Baltimoreans to get out on the water year round.
And to drum up business in the off-season he’s offering a pretty wicked deal. For the standard fee of a $7 to $12 roundtrip, you can order up a boat to pick you up and take you to any one of the 17 Harbor Connector stops. McDaniel says you may wait as little as five minutes.
And if this on-demand service heats up, there are plans for a smartphone app.
So what do you say, Baltimore, want to take a winter ride on the harbor? I’m considering calling one up for the pure aristocratic thrill of being conveyed in my own personal craft.
