The Water Taxi is £5 per person return, which is payable in cash to the boatman. Please allow enough time to park your car and travel to the Marina to catch the Water Taxi. Your booking duration, from leaving the Marina to your return (including the Water Taxi journey) is approximately 3 hours. This time may be slightly subject to change depending on the tides at the time of your journey. Please ensure you have arranged sufficient parking time to cover possible delays.
There is limited on-road parking around the Marina. The more guaranteed option is the Car Park at the end of Camperdown Terrace EX8 1EJ. This is a 5-minute walk to the Water Taxi departure point. Alternatively, there is a car park at Exmouth Leisure Centre, EX8 1EN. This is a 15-minute walk to the Water Taxi. When parking your car, please allow ample time to enjoy your visit to us.
