The great kick off to 2017 is fast approaching us so start thinking about your water taxi transport to the New Year’s Eve celebrations today!


Queenstown Water Taxis is by far the best means of transportation to get you, your friends, and family into down town Queenstown this year, where all the fun and action takes place!


Don’t get stuck in traffic or spend your evening searching for a car park –  catch the water taxi and be there in minutes!


We can pick up from most jetties along Kelvin Heights and Frankton road and will also be running constantly out of the Hilton jetty.


Please be prepared and BOOK your taxi today if you are wanting a pick up from selected jetties along Frankton Road or Kelvin Heights. There is no need to book from Hilton jetty as we will be doing continuos round trip with our large boat.
