Water taxis will be part of Boat Show/Arts Festival
To help people get around, there will be seven water taxi stops in Miami including Dinner Key Marina in Coconut Grove, the others are Bayside Park; Sea Isle Marina; American Airlines Marina; the Hyatt Regency; the Viceroy Hotel; and the Four Seasons Hotel. There will be 15 to 20 water taxis, each carrying 45 to 130 passengers.
The advantage of the water taxi service for the Grove is that the Coconut Grove Arts Festival is the weekend of February 13-15, so this will help in getting people from one venue to the next. Between you and me, I will take the taxi just for the fun of the ride. It took about 15 minutes for the press to get from Bayside Market place to the Virginia Key site the other day. So it's a nice, fairly quick trip.
There also will be water taxi service to and from the Purdy Avenue boat ramp on Miami Beach, which will be the hub for all Miami Beach hotels. Water taxi service to Dinner Key and Purdy Avenue will be on the hour.
There will be many shuttle buses, too, to help get people around.
Water taxi service will start two days before the show (Tuesday, February 9) and continue until a day after the show (Tuesday, February 16). Operating hours will be 6:30 am to 7 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday; 6:30 am to 9 pm on Thursday; and 9 am. to 7 pm from Friday through Monday.
It would be nice to have these water taxi's on a regular basis, those and regular trolley service would be a big plus for the Grove.
