The Pirate Water Taxi in Tampa is expanding its fleet with a new direct route along to the Hillsborough River to the Lowry Park Zoo.

Passholders got a free sneak peek at the new route this past weekend, and is now open to the public.

The trip takes about 45 minutes each way, going from the Tampa Convention Center to the Zoo dock located at 7252 North Boulevard, in a City of Tampa park directly across the street from the Lowry Park Zoo.

Pirate Water Taxi built an entirely new 29-seat boat for the new route. It leaves daily from the Tampa Convention Center at 10:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. And it leaves from the Zoo Dock at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily.

You can book a ride at or in person at the Tampa Convention Center. A round-trip ticket costs $18 for adults and $10 for children, and includes same-day complimentary rides on the Pirate Water Taxi Downtown Tampa routes.

The launch was timed to be ready for the upcoming Spring Break season.
