Steve, I'm sorry for any confusion. Please know that the water taxi dock at Logan works the same way as the land taxis do at the terminals. The first water taxi in line takes the next person or people that want to use the service....More

Whenever possible, I make arrangements to take the water taxi from Logan. It's so easy to catch the bus over to the dock, and you call for pickup while you ride over on said bus. Besides being a nice, ten-minute ride across the harbor, you...More
