POR/POFQ and Boat Service

I mentioned to someone I was going to be at POR in Dec and they said they heard the boat service at some point was not going to be available - does anyone know if there is any merit to this?? Thanks

I haven't read anything here or anywhere else about stopping boat service from POR/FQ. At the other end of the boat route at DTD, boat service from POR/FQ has been moved from the Marketplace dock to the DTD center dock near the Characters in Flight Yellow Balloon ride. Disney is rebuilding the Marketplace dock, adding a pedestrian bridge where Captain Jack's used to stand, and other work. Completion was given as "Fall" but I haven't read any updates.

As previous post said, only thing changed was on the Downtown side. I doubt that the water taxi will ever go away, that's a strong selling point on those resorts. You're info may have been referring to the boat and sea racer rentals, which were discontinued.

They may have been referring to the recreational boats that used to be available for rent at POR. They were removed a few months ago. The boats to and from DTD are still running, they just go to a different dock in DTD.
