Water Taxi Supports: South Broward High School’s Maritime Magnet Program!

Welcome to South Broward High School’s Maritime Magnet Program! Our unique curriculum exposes young people to career choices in the maritime industry, and encourages environmental stewardship for coral reefs, sharks and our oceans. Most importantly, we seek to instill a reverence for our inimitable maritime culture, passed down to us from the days of the Tequesta Indians who first made their living here from the sea. Our students will go on to become the maritime community of the future.

Corporate Social Responsibility

The Island Expedition and the Island Discovery two 2 – 200 passenger high speed catamarans that are owned by Water Taxi are getting new engines. While this may sound like a standard protocol, this particular trip to the shop is unique for many reasons.

The Catamarans were built originally to serve the Boston Harbor Islands National Park bring millions of visitors to this wonderful park. They are designed by world renowned Americas Cup designers Morelli and Melvin.

The catamaran design has many environmentally friendly attributes. The hull shapes are very efficient which allows for a more efficient engine, lower fuel use, better emissions, lower wake (helps with shore side erosion and wakes with other boaters) they are very maneuverable and safe.

In addition to the environmental friendly enhancements, while standing on this boat, you’ll barely be able to hear the engine at all! We hope this very green improvement not only helps the environment but enhances your experience aboard this vessel, too!
