As you know, inclusion is a very important part of the WaterFire experience and we strive to make our events as accessible as possible. WaterFire Access was created to help accomplish that goal. For the past 11 years, WaterFire Access has provided individuals with mobility issues or disabilities the opportunity to join in the WaterFire experience with their family and friends on specially designed boats retrofitted to allow for handicap access. This free water-taxi program ensures that these individuals can enjoy the magic of WaterFire, free from the physical restrictions the outdoor location might present.
