Get there faster.

Did you know you can now purchase your tickets online for our Water Taxi?

You can buy your tickets online anytime any day; you don't need to choose a date or a time, just bring your ticket on the day. It’s always a good idea to arrive a little earlier, we have a café that serves some delicious coffee and food, if you need some energy before your trip to Straddie (I recommend the chicken, cheese & mayo toastie 😉). 

Return tickets are only $14 for an adult, $12 for students, $8 for a child and $7 for concession card holders (ensure you have applicable ID with you if you purchase a student or concession ticket)*
*please note prices are subject to change, click here for our most accurate price list.

It takes about 3 minutes to purchase your tickets online – that’s less than it takes to listen to your favourite song! 

Our passenger ferry takes less than 30 minutes to get from Cleveland to Dunwich – that’s less than it takes to watch an episode of friends – instead why not bring your friends to Straddie with you!

When you arrive in Dunwich you can stay and explore the cultural heart of the Island or get on the Island bus and head to Point Lookout or Amity Point. If you get the bus make sure to have cash. The bus takes about 25 minutes (make sure to check the Island bus timetable as not all boats have bus connections).

Getting the water taxi rather than the vehicle ferry means you have an extra 30 minutes on the island – it takes less than 30 minutes to; eat a gelati, catch a wave or check out the gorge walk…
