Explore Mission Bay from the Water TaxSea. Your Water TaxSea ticket lets you on and off its stops all day while taking in the sights along Mission Bay’s famous waterway, which is the busiest recreational bay in the United States.

The Water TaxSea is like a trolley-on-the-water. Board a Water TaxSea at any of our stops and purchase your ticket onboard, cash or credit card. If you have a Sea World ticket you may enter the park through a private entrance and avoid all the long lines and hassles that you run into at the front of the park.

There are multiple routes to choose from that give you access to both Mission Bay as well as Mission and Pacific Beaches, world-class shopping and dining, and great beach bars- all for one low price! Enjoy unparalleled views of the Beach and Bay from every seat!

Not sure where to go?

The Water TaxSea main routes travel in two directions, Beach or Bay bound. Beach bound takes you north to a private dock that is 1 block from the famous 7-mile stretch of Beach. No more battling for parking spots and driving around in circles in Beach traffic. The Water TaxSea delivers you right to the sand! Bay bound takes you to a private entrance of SeaWorld Park next to their water stadium. Along the way you will see the same Marine wildlife on the bay that you are about to at SeaWorld.

Our Crew will happily help you plan your day as you cruise past many interesting sites from million-dollar mansions to beautiful yachts. With over 50 of the hottest restaurants, bars and attractions located steps from our stops that offer Water TaxSea guest a sensational discount.
