About Pirate Water Taxi

A fleet of six pirate-themed Water Taxi vessels in Downtown Tampa that is owned and operated by Manthey Hospitality Cruises & Events.

The Water Taxis operate 7-days a week, with longer hours on the weekends and during special events.

Daily admission allows for unlimited “Hop On, Hop Off” boarding all day from any of the stops which are conveniently located along the Hillsborough River and Tampa’s waterways.
