The Experience:

Bricktown is a beautiful area of Oklahoma City, and many residents and tourists alike enjoy walking along the canal, but if you'd like to rest your feet a bit, see the sights and get an enjoyable history lesson as you float, a Bricktown Water Taxi ride is exactly what you need.

Sit back and listen to your "Water Taxi Ambassador" narrate the story of Bricktown, offering pieces of information on all the area points of interest.

Schedule:

Though the weather might alter the Water Taxi schedule, boats run continuously every 10-15 minutes from 10am to 10pm during the months of April through October. In July and August, those times are often extended, and if a RedHawks game at the Brick is outside of the regular hours, Water Taxis will run one hour before and one hour after the game.

Cost:

All Water Taxi tickets are all-day passes. You can ride the full round trip which takes about 40 minutes, or you can board/exit at any of the docking locations below. Tickets can be purchased at the Water Taxi ticket booth, by calling (405) 234-8263 or online.

Current prices are as follows:

  • Regular Pass - $9.50
  • 65 & Over - $8
  • Active Military - $8
  • Disabled - $8
  • Students (6-12) - $8
  • 5 & Under - $2

Where to Board:

The Bricktown Water Taxi ticket booth is located on the west side of Mickey Mantle Drive, just across the street from the Bricktown Ballpark. After purchasing or picking up tickets, you can simply walk down the stairs to the canal for boarding.

Special Events:

During Oklahoma City's Downtown in December events, Bricktown Water Taxis often provide free rides on certain nights thanks to local sponsors, allowing Bricktown visitors to experience the canal while viewing the beautiful holiday lights.

Private Charters:

Are you coming to Bricktown with a group and want a private Water Taxi ride? Or perhaps you'd like it to be a romantic experience for two? Seating up to 40 passengers, Bricktown Water Taxis can be reserved for a private charter of up to 1 hour of exclusive use.

Rates are $222.17 (tax included). Charters must be paid in advance, and customers can even get a cooler with beverages for an additional fee. Call (405) 234-TAXI for more information.
