Occoquan River at Belmont Bay


Have you ever wondered what it might be like to be able to enjoy a water taxi ride between Old Town Occoquan, Belmont Bay or Occoquan Regional Park Then you need to come to the Occoquan River Festival this Sunday July 27th to take a ride on the two water taxis; Half Shell or Miss Rivershore that will be running between the festival locations to find out.

Water taxis aren't new to our area but they fell out of use almost 100 years ago.  Now with commute times increasing and roads become more congested local officials are looking at ways to revive the use of water taxis in the area.  A test run of water taxis from the proposed Harbor Station development on the Potomac River was conducted last year and the new National Harbor development has water taxis running between PG County and Old Town Alexandria on a daily basis.

Besides providing a fun way to get around for the day, the taxi routes will give local officials and members of the Occoquan River Communities the opportunity to see how effective water taxis might be to connect local waterfront communities and potentially lead to service to the DC area.

The taxis will begin running at 11 am with the first water taxis leaving from Belmont Bay and the Town of Occoquan.  The taxis will make stops at each of the locations where festival activities are taking place throughout the day.   The cost for a ride is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.

So park your car at one of the festival locations and take a ride on the Occoquan River.  Join the team of volunteers who have made the Occoquan River Festival event a reality and get to know more about the Occoquan River Communities this weekend.

Cindy, the water taxi idea sounds like an enjoyable and scenic method of transportation. So much more fun than just riding around on the roads.

Cindy, when I was in New York, we tried a water taxi and what fun!  And the East River was much less congested than Third Avenue!
