Venice Private Departure Transfer by Water Taxi: Central Venice to Cruise Port

Select Date and Travellers
USD 170.56
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Skip any transport stress when traveling from your Venice hotel to your cruise port (either Venezia Marittima or San Basilio). Transfer service is available 7 days a week, so you can schedule a pickup time that suits your travel needs. Please provide hotel and cruise details when booking your transfer. You will receive confirmation within 24 hours and a travel voucher to show the transfer representative. 

    Choose from two different options:
    • Meet and greet service: A transfer representative will meet you in your hotel lobby if the hotel does not have a private pier. You will then be escorted to a waiting motorboat at the nearest departure point. If your hotel has a private pier, you will hop aboard the motorboat there on your own, and a representative will meet you at the cruise pier and escort you to the port departure terminal.
    • Full service: A representative will meet you in the lobby of your hotel and accompany you all the way to the port departure terminal.

    Worry-free Shore Excursion:

    We will ensure your timely departure for this transfer. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

    Price is per person, based on six adults per boat.

    Please note: Guests staying at Venice’s Hotel Marriott (Isola delle Rose) will need to pay a surcharge of €20 at the time of service due to the hotel’s more distant location.

    A representative came to meet us at our hotel, and directed us to our water taxi, which was just for our group. Be prepared to wheel your luggage through the uneven streets, but that is Venice! The water taxi took us to the cruise port and there was another representative
