Your journey information



When you visit us at The River Exe Cafe you will catch the Puffin Water Taxi. The Water Taxi departs from Exmouth Marina from the Visitors Pontoon outside The Point Bar, EX8 1XA. Your Water Taxi time will be given to you when you book.


The Water Taxi is £5 per person return which is payable in cash to the boatman; we will arrange the Water Taxi when booking. Please leave enough time for parking and your journey to the Marina to catch the Water Taxi. Your booking time from leaving the Marina to your return including the Water Taxi journey is approximately 3 hours. This time may alter slightly as it is dependent on the tides at the time of your journey. Please ensure your parking time fully covers this.


There is limited on-road parking around the Marina. There is a new Car Park at the Marina itself EX8 1DU. If this if full, another 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 for 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!
