2010 Water Taxi Tickets Plus Free Parking--Available Now
The Alexandria Riverboat Company this afternoon began pre-sales of their scheduled Water Taxi trips from Old Town Alexandria to Nationals Park for the 2010 home games for Our Washington Nationals. 39 selected game dates are currently available for purchase--including Opening Day--but not the entire 81-game home schedule--so you will have to check online for days the Water Taxi is currently expected to operate. Those dates might increase--based on demand.
If you purchase boat ride tickets in advance and online only--included is a free parking pass at the 200 Strand Street lot in Old Town across from Chadwicks Restaurant.
Additionally--although the link has not been updated--discounted tickets to all Nationals Home Games when The Water Taxi Operates are available at the Nationals Box Office by showing your Water Taxi Ticket. Last year, that reduction in price ranged from $7 to $9 per game ticket. Check with The Nationals Ticket Office for 2010 Boating/Game Ticket Prices.
Cost for the Water Taxi is $20 roundtrip and $12 one way. The boat will leave Alexandria approximately 1 hour before each game and leave Nationals Park 20 minutes after final pitch. Beer & Refreshments are available onboard for purchase.
