Whittier Water Taxi offers the best prices and service for a personalized and reliable water transportation service for up to six passengers at a time and/or gear on our heated boat to any back-country location throughout South Western Prince William Sound as well as transport to Chenega Glacier and many other great camping,
sea-kayaking, hiking, photography, birding and wildlife viewing hotspots. We'll taxi you to prime beach-combing or berry-picking locations, or we'll take you to specific areas that support your research efforts.
We conveniently pick you up in the Whittier Boat Harbor at the public boat launch at the east end of the harbor.
Whittier Water Taxi specializes in small, personalized groups, rather than the large industrialized cattle tours, ensuring you have a fantastic, high quality experience you’ll remember and recommend to your friends and family. We love to show our visitors the unique Alaskan getaways that only the year-round locals know about!
We aim to fit your schedule - 7 days a week. We are punctual, and we’ve never left any of our passengers behind, something that most other water taxis cannot honestly say! We are your most reliable and affordable option for Prince William Sound Water Taxi, with no hidden fees - our prices include everything.
Whittier Water Taxi is locally owned and operated by year round Alaskan Matt Cline. Matt, originally from Tillamook, Oregon, and a well-traveled military child, always had a strong desire to explore the Alaskan wilderness. In 1986, he finally fulfilled his wish and moved to Alaska. Matt's mechanical and boating skills were in high demand in this fishing and boating state, and his work took him from Anchorage to Seward, Cook Inlet to the North Slope, and from the interior to the coast. Matt has spent more than 25 years boating in the Alaskan waters in tiny, open skiffs to 100' boats, including doing his time with Alaska's commercial fisheries. He holds a USCG 200 ton Master License, is State Park permitted, and is a licensed game transporter. A qualified Alaska naturalist, Matt will have you enthralled with his Alaskan stories and wealth of knowledge.
