Bricktown Water Taxi offers both local and foreign tourists a very unique and interesting way of exploring the city via Bricktown Canal. Since its first operation in 1999, the Water Taxi has become a popular tourist attraction not just in Oklahoma City but in the entire Oklahoma State. The water taxi operators are called Water Taxi Ambassador. They provide historical information and random facts on some of the interesting sites passed along the way.

In 2007, Bricktown Water Taxi celebrated touring its millionth passenger around the city. And in 2009, it marked its decade of service of affording its passengers a chance to see the city through the Bricktown Canal.

Functioning as a continual service, the water taxi offers round trips of about 40 minutes long with its main dock located in front of the AT&T Bricktown Ballpark. Other dock areas can be found in lower Bricktown area. Visitors can board every 10-15 minutes during regular seasons, while service intervals change during off-seasons. Bricktown Water Taxi usually provides free rides sponsored by locals during the city's Downtown in December events, affording passengers a chance to enjoy the holiday lights from the canals.

The Water Taxi also offers various bookings and charters. The private charter allows up to 40 passengers a one hour exclusive use of the boat which usually departs from the landing in front of Chelino's Mexican restaurant. Dinner cruises, seats up to 20 people, can only be availed through reservation and includes a separate-fee catering. One of the catering options is a canal-side restaurant called Bourbon Street Cafe. Charter cocktail service seats up to 25 persons and can be booked in two options - a combination of beer and wine or a full mixed-beverage service. All passengers are required to be age 21 or older and must bring with them a valid ID.

The water taxi operates from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM during peak season. But during the summer season when the most number of people are expected, the boat typically operates from 9:00 AM to midnight.
