SHARK, CLARK and RODD ISLANDS Wedding and Function PACKAGE SPECIALS from $1,650

Are you considering a Wedding or Function on one of the beautiful Sydney Harbour Islands? The prospect can be very exciting but the logistics can be daunting. Have you considered your water transport for caterers, food, alcohol, marquee crew, decorators, your celebrant, entertainment, all the guests and VIPs, providing bins for rubbish disposal etc?

Once you have your requirements down on paper you may think you need a barge for the marquee and other large equipment, a ferry for the guests and some water taxis for the VIPs and other miscellaneous transfers. You may have questions such as where do we embark that has parking and easy access for all the guests including the less mobile guests, families with prams etc, that also has easy access to your venue.

H2O Taxis has the solution to all your water transport needs. For an all up fee of $1,650 (includes up to 50 passengers total each way) we will transport all your gear, caterers and supplies and other key personnel* out to the island of your choice for an early set up and then return to bring your guests. We offer another trip for your bridal party. We'll bring your celebrant back after your ceremony and offer a trip for early leavers as well. Of course, we'll return later to bring you all safely back at the end of your special day.

For $1,950 we will transport up to 75 passengers. $2,350 for up to 100 passengers and $3000 for 150 passengers. (Please note - additional costs may apply if crew, suppliers, caterers require individual trips). Please email enquiries to .

Special conditions are that we operate from the nearest wharf to the Sydney Harbour Island that you choose. For example, for Shark Island this will be Rose Bay, for Clark Island you have the choice of Elizabeth Bay Marina off Ithaca Rd, Yarranabbe Park off New Beach Rd at Rushcutters Bay or Double Bay Wharf. For Cockatoo Island this will be Greenwich, Woolwich, Drummoyne or Elliott St Balmain. If you choose to have your special event at Rodd Island the nearest wharf is at Leichhardt, outside La Montage Function venue or Dobroyd Point.

Please compare costs. If you are after real value for money with one water transport provider taking responsibility for all island logistics, H2O Taxis has the experience and know how, and of course, the right price. You are dealing with a 100% Australian owned and family operated company, not franchisees or hire drivers. From the time of your first call or email we take full responsibility for the infrastructure water transport support required to make your function a success.
