Transport to West Side Story on Sydney Harbour 2024

Water Taxi Services to Handa Opera On Sydney Harbour by H2O Maxi Taxis

We are delighted to be offering a shared water taxi service to and from Handa Opera On Sydney Harbour on performance nights between 22nd March and 21st April 2024. Tickets for West Side Story can be purchased from Opera Australia's website here.

The venue is open between 5.00pm and 10.30pm. So our services are scheduled for you to start arriving in time for when the gates open (first departure 5pm) with frequency increasing between 6pm and 7.15pm, when most patrons are arriving. For departures after the show (as Andrew Boy Charlton Pool is not accessible during the show), these will commence immediately after the show as each boat fills (about 10.20pm) and then they will run shuttle runs every 10/15 minutes until water taxi patrons stop appearing (at the latest by 11.00pm)

Transport Tickets

Tickets for our water taxis cost $15 each way and can be purchased on the night by card payment, from our station at Man O War (map), by Sydney Opera House or after the Opera at our station at Andrew Boy Charlton Pool.
