Toronto water taxi
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 Operations and Restrictions
Unlike the city run ferry service, water taxis are privately run and cost more to cover the same distance. The taxis offer services to those who are stranded on the Islands when ferry service is disrupted or ended or to patrons whom have missed boarding their cruise ships at various docks along the mainland. Inner taxis normally offer services within the inner harbour only.
Like the ferries, the taxis do not operate during the winter months as the inner harbour is frozen and no ships can navigate in the waterway.
Water taxis are not licensed like land based taxis, rather they are regulated by boating regulations and required operator to be a licensed motor boat operator and have required life jackets for all occupants.
Taxi sizes vary from small boats carrying a few passengers to larger vessels carrying 10 or more passengers.
