Washington DC Water Taxis

Washington DC is a great capital that welcomes many people. Therefore, it is essential that you have a good public transport network that is capable of meeting all demands. For those who think that there is only a bus, subway, train or taxi of a lifetime, tell you that you are very wrong. There are also some curious water taxis .

These taxi boats link Alexandria to the United States capital across the Potomac River . Specifically, they depart from the Alexandria Marina and arrive at the National Gaylord Port , located in Maryland . A normal one-way ticket costs 8 dollars (about 6 euros) and a round-trip ticket costs 16 dollars (12 euros).

Although it is very curious and attracts a lot of attention, it is more used by the citizens of Washington DC than by tourists who visit the area . Interestingly, on January 20 , when Barack Obama was sworn in as the new president of the United States, it was one of the most used transports. More than anything because buses, trains and subways were blocked. It was only accessible on foot or through these friendly water taxis.
