You will soon be able to travel between a couple of Schenectady hot spots along the Mohawk River by a glass bottom water taxi!

Well this is certainly a fun way to get around Schenectady! Especially if you would enjoy the opportunity to get on the water but, like many of us, don't happen to own a boat or have a friend with a boat.

According to Spectrum News The Mohawk River Cruises company has acquired and licensed it's first glass bottom boat that may began a short season within the next couple of weeks where it will shuttle you back and fourth between four destinations along the Mohawk River on a timed schedule. Kind of like a bus schedule, that you can pick up at Mohawk Harbor and the Stockade Neighborhood in Schenectady; Scotia Landing; and the Water's Edge Lighthouse in Glenville!

Obviously winter is coming so it probably won't be up and running for too long but they plan to be open for a full season in the Spring of 2018 and even have a second boat coming up from Florida to make runs on the river. So far they are thinking about selling day passes for somewhere between $10 and $20 and are toying with offering weekend or even season passes.

I don't know about you but I would so be down to get around on the Mohawk rather than keep driving through all of the construction that has been going on in that area for awhile now. I don't know if a class bottom boat is really necessary since I find it hard to believe that you will be able to see anything worthy of seeing (or at all) in those waters but still it's a pretty cool concept!

What do you think? Will you be trying out Schenectady's new water taxi?
