Affordable, fast, and great way to get to peanut island. I think it was $12 A person to take the water taxi and it runs every 20-30 minutes. Its a good size so plenty of people can ride on each trip.

The Peanut Island Water Taxi is fast, spacious, and affordable. They run about every 20 minutes throughout the day. The dock is clean and the ticket sellers very friendly. Note: No alcohol is allowed on Peanut Island, so your cooler might be checked before you...More

We had no problem with waiting in line at the water taxi and got right on the boat. It's $12 per person round trip and worth every cent of the money to go over to Peanut Island Park. Easy parking on the shore, too.

I'm not sure if this is the same operation as what was there a couple years ago. Either way, it's much nicer than it was previously. The boat is a little bigger I think and somehow just feels like a much more professional operation. It's...More

Took the 4 minute trip over to peanut island, only one young man who worked there was pleasant... everyone else, not so much. The captain was rude and even started cursing after hitting the dock with the taxi on the return trip. $12 per person...More
