Salcombe Harbour Water Taxi Service

Due to the current COVID-19 situation we find ourselves in, we have had to implement some changes to the way our Water Taxi operations work. From Monday 1st June 2020, the Water Taxi will be operational from 09.00 to 19.30 seven days a week and operates half hour slots, on the hour and half hour. These set times must be pre booked in advance by calling the taxi mobile number on 07807 643879.


We will only be allowing a maximum of four people from one household at a time on the taxi to ensure social distancing. We ask that any bookings are made direct to the taxi mobile which will be with the person operating the taxi. As the situation progresses, the water taxi operations are constantly being reviewed and any changes will be posted via our social media and on the website. We thank you for your co operation.


In addition the Harbour Office on Whitestrand will be opening again from Monday 1st June 2020, seven days a week throughout the summer. We request that only essential trips are taken to the office, our preference is still for business to be conducted online or over the phone.


Social distancing measures will need to be respected and only one person at a time will be allowed into the front of reception.

To adhere to social distancing guidelines and prevent overcrowding a particular trip and removing waiting or queuing, advanced booking is essential by phone or email.

The Harbour Taxi will be monitoring VHF channel 12 and mobile 07807 643879.
