River Taxi

Leave the crowds and cars behind while you cruise the Christina River on the River Taxi. Experience Wilmington’s Riverfront as you have never seen it before…from the water. Weary travelers can relax on a voyage that carries them on the tranquil waters of the Christina and Brandywine Rivers. Just sit back, relax and let the captain do the navigating while you enjoy rides up and down the river experiencing the many beautiful destinations Wilmington’s revitalized Riverfront has to offer. The River Taxi is a 29-passenger fun-filled, sun-filled way to take it all in. The taxi can be boarded from six docks located along the riverfront.

The Christina Riverboat Company also offers special tours and chartered services such as The History Tour. The History Tour is a one-hour narrated tour that highlights Wilmington's historical riverfront area. Why settle for a waterfront table at a restaurant when you can enjoy being wined and dined while sailing on the beautiful Christina River. Looking for that really special something? Why not try a Wednesday Wine Cruise on the River Taxi! Sway to the soft roll of the waves and soft music played on the deck as you cruise under the stars.

The taxi can be boarded from six docks located along the Riverfront:

  • Dravo Plaza
  • Public Docks
  • FireStone Roasting House
  • Riverfront Market/Harry's Seafood Grill
  • Tubman-Garrett Riverfront Park
  • Kalmar Nyckel Shipyard
