Water Taxi Operator Wanted

We are requesting proposals from licensed commercial tour boat operators to provide water taxi shuttle service and boat tours linking our historic sites in the Thames River Memorial Day weekend through mid-September 2019 – 2021. The operator would utilize our two US Navy Willard utility boats.

Entering our fourth season, we saw more than 6,500 passengers ride the three-stop hop-on hop-off water taxi in New London and Groton.

The Request for Proposals (RFP) can be found here.

Deadline for submission is Monday, January 28th. Those interested must attend a pre-submittal meeting at 11 a.m., Tuesday, January 8, 2019, Fort Trumbull State Park Conference Center, 90 Walbach Street, New London, CT 06320, at which time proposers will have an opportunity to ask questions.
