Water Taxi Service returns to the Inner Harbour and Gorge Waterway

On Friday, June 5, 2020, at 11:00 a.m., we will resume water taxi service to select docks in Victoria’s Inner Harbour and Gorge  Waterway, on a modified schedule. We are excited to resume our operations in the harbour and look forward to providing an enjoyable and safe experience onboard our vessels. As we navigate through these uncertain times, our commitment to safety grows stronger. We are working under the guidance of Transport Canada, public health authorities, and WorkSafe BC to ensure that we maintain a high standard of cleanliness, as we welcome our valued staff and passengers.


Upon taking a water taxi, passengers will be briefed on our new COVID-19 protocols. These include the daily sanitation of all boats, marked seating, and a reduction in the number of passengers allowed to board a vessel. At our docks, partitions are mounted to keep passengers safely distanced, and our captains will be wearing masks.


We look forward to welcoming you onboard as we proceed with caution and care to ensure that we provide a safe environment for everyone.
