The Woodlands Waterway Cruiser (formerly known as Water Taxis) —A fun way to get around The Woodlands Town Center.


For those who want to have a relaxing ride and take in the scenery, you can take a boat tour on a Waterway Cruiser along The Woodlands Waterway®, a 1.4 mile long corridor.


We have six Waterway Cruisers that travel along The Woodlands Waterway providing the perfect way to explore all the amenities that the Waterway has to offer. Along both sides of the corridor are businesses, restaurants, office buildings, hotels and urban residential. The east end of the corridor is anchored by The Woodlands Mall and the west end is anchored by The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion and Town Green Park.
