Captain Ashley Simmons is pleased to announce the launch of the Bermuda Water Taxi, which specializes in shuttling passengers from the Royal Naval Dockyard to Hamilton (or anywhere in the Great Sound – west) and the town of St. George.

Captain Ashley Simmons states, “After witnessing ferries and buses transporting visitors around Bermuda, the idea came to me about offering an alternative mode of transportation with a difference. With a Water Taxi, tourists and locals can call for the taxi when needed or can make reservations for a pickup. The Water Taxi is for anyone who would like a relaxing ride to their destination, while learning about the history of our beautiful Island.”

It is hoped that with the addition of the Water Taxi to Bermuda’s transportation possibilities that visitors and Bermudian’s alike will have more of a choice on how to get to their final destination.

Travelling by water is both relaxing, time efficient and beautiful – a moment off from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Tourists will have the opportunity to be educated by the knowledgeable captain on their surroundings, Bermudian culture and history while being transported. They can relax, learn and see Bermuda in a whole new way. The Water Taxi offers Bermudians another choice in travel on a daily basis and can be booked out for corporate event runs and private party runs, should attendees need transportation to either end of the island.

Terry Roberson, General Manager of Bermuda CableVision, which is The Bermuda Water Taxi’s Lead sponsor states, “Bermuda CableVision is excited to support the launch of Bermuda Water Taxi. Like the new service, which offers residents and tourist a fun and convenient way to get around the island, Bermuda CableVision’s subscribers stretch the entire length of the island and we hope they find Bermuda Water Taxi a useful addition. I congratulate Captain Ashley Simmons for his entrepreneurialism and wish him every success with this new venture.”

The Water Taxi operates between the hours of 8am to 7pm daily with run times of 15 and 25 minutes for a cost of $10 to $20 depending on your destination. With the following daily run schedule, you are sure to get to your destination on time with an experience you wont forget:

1. Royal Naval Dockyard to Hamilton (or anywhere in between)

2. City of Hamilton to Royal Naval Dockyard

3. Royal Naval Dockyard to Town of St. George to Royal Naval Dockyard
