BOSTON - Rowes Wharf Water Taxi/Luggage Storage

Recommended Posts

ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS OR INFORMATION ABOUT USING THIS SERVICE?  WE PURCHASED OUR AIRLINE TICKETS FOR RETURNING HOME TO SAN DIEGO (from Boston ) AND WE DONT NEED TO BE AT THE AIRPORT UNTIL 5:00PM OR SO. We will, OF COURSE HAVE LUGGAGE!  I found this information below and it sounds very doable but has anyone done or know anyone who has used them?  THANKS   I have read mixed opinions on this.  The other water taxis do not seem to have the luggage storage for a few hours.  We NEED someplace to put our luggage between the port , looking around the city, and to the airport same day!


 Rowes Wharf Water Transport:  Best Logan Airport / Black Falcon / Luggage Storage Deals

Rowes Wharf Water Transport charges $12 for the 7-minute trip from Boston Logan Airport to Inner Harbor locations (basically, Downtown, the North End, Seaport, East Boston where the airport is located), and offers a round-trip ticket for $20. 

Luggage storage and 1-way fare to or from the airport is $20.

You can get 2-day passes ($25 individual; $50 family with 2 adults and up to 3 children).  These are a terrific deal, especially if you're staying at one of the Boston Logan hotels.

As a special benefit, Rowes Wharf water taxi passengers with round-trip tickets can store bags for free during the day in Rowes Wharf Transport's locked storage room at their ticket office next to the Boston Harbor Hotel. 

One-way passengers can also store bags here for the day for $8/person.

Water Taxi Cruise Ship Passenger Special:  Black Falcon Cruise Terminal - Boston Logan Airport

Are you arriving on a cruise ship at the Black Falcon early in the day, flying out of Boston Logan later, and want to spend the time in between sightseeing?  And storing your luggage somewhere? The easiest and also the cheapest way to accomplish all this is to take advantage of Rowes Wharf Water Taxi's Cruise Ship Special.

For $25/person, a Rowes Wharf water taxi will pick you up at the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal, take you to Rowes Wharf just a few minutes away, store your luggage for free in their locked storage room while you explore the city, and then take you over to the airport for your flight home. 

If you've just arrived at Logan for a cruise departing later in the day, the Cruise Ship Special also works in reverse:  the taxi picks you up at the airport, takes you to Rowes Wharf to store your luggage while you explore Boston, and then transports you to CruisePort in time for your departure.

To arrange for this service, call their office at 617-261-6620, or the water taxi captain at 617-406-8584.

Without luggage storage, fares to the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal and Charlestown locations are $20 one way, and $35 round trip. 

When responding, don't use quote tag below,  please do not feel like you need to duplicate entire post just reply with WATER TAXI or something.  THANKS

Hoping someone has used them before and can comment    138East??

This option is often suggested on this forum.  There has been no negative feedback.  They keep changing the options and the prices, but they do provide reliable luggage storage.


What you have to understand is that if you get picked up,at the port, you have to roll your luggage to the water taxi dock which is at the far west end of the pier. It’s a bit of a walk if your ship is docked all the way at the east end.  Price it out - I think two people can Uber directly to the Boston Harbor hotel and just buy the airport water taxi ticket and luggage storage for a similar cost of the water taxi to Rowe’s Wharf, luggage storage, and water taxi to the airport.
