The new service, Water Taxi MKE, will start providing rides along the Milwaukee River Saturday, owner Redmond Tuttle announced in a news release.
The boat will stop at riverfront bars, public docks and apartments along the water. It will make stops at Milwaukee attractions such as Lakefront Brewery, The Harp Irish Pub and the Ale House.
Boaters can play their own music and drink while traveling along the river.
Prices for a trip on the pontoon boat taxi start at $5 per person. A $10 fare will take riders anywhere along the river route. A Pub Crawl option is also available for $20 per person. Tickets can be purchased online or on the boat. The taxi can hold six passengers.
The water taxi will pick up customers who text their location to Water Taxi MKE for service.
Water Taxi MKE will add a custom-built 19-passenger water taxi to the offerings soon, the release said.
Tuttle also runs the brewery tour party bus Brewery Hop MKE and is one of the founders of Milwaukee Paddle Tavern.
No Machinery Row, no water taxi for Racine.
