Your journey information


When you visit us at River Exe Cafe you will need to take the Puffin Water Taxi or arrive on your own boat. The Water Taxi departs from Exmouth Marina’s Visitors Pontoon outside The Point Bar, EX8 1XA. Your Water Taxi departure time will be given to you upon booking with us.


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.

There are regular buses from Exmouth Town Centre.  There is also a Land Train and train links into Exmouth Station.  The Train Station is approximately a 15-minute walk to the Visitors Pontoon.   
If you are travelling from Starcross, unfortunately this is a Private Pontoon and our Water Taxi cannot land.  You can catch the Starcross Ferry to Exmouth Marina and then join the Water Taxi to The River Exe Cafe there. 
The evening can be chilly on the water; we do have indoor eating and heaters, but bring an extra layer just in case!
