Why choosing a water taxi in Venice?

Venice is a city built on water, which means local transport is also closely related to it. For those who are considering about how to move around in Venice the choice is actually between a water taxi and a Vaporetto (the equivalent of a crowded city bus).

Venice water taxi prices and travel times make our service the most effective manner to get around Venice: private, comfortable transfers that will save queues and inconveniences, facilitating movements with bulky luggage bringing you exactly to the chosen destination.

Can I choose the route?

Our taxi boats always take the shortest route to your destination. However, it is also possible to extend the route to admire the most fascinating waterway in the world (the Grand Canal) featuring Rialto Bridge, the Academy Galleries, the Church della Salute and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum.

Is there a night surcharge?

Yes, for transfers at night (from 22:00 to 7:00 am) a € 15,00 surcharge will be applied.

Can the water taxis reach any hotel in Venice or Lido?

Almost in all cases, with the exception of a not favourable tide (too high or too low): in these cases, the service does not directly reach the private dock of the following Venice hotels: Duodo, Splendid, Cavalletto, Saturnia, Bonvecchiati and Bonvecchiati Palace, Campo de la Guerra. Nevertheless, it will stop as close as possible (within a 5-minute walk from the arrival point).

How many suitcases can be carried on a water taxi?

It is possible to carry up to 12 suitcases. The price remains unchanged for up to 4 suitcases; from 5 upwards, a € 5,00 per suitcase surcharge is applied.

How many persons can travel simultaneously on a water taxi?
