Look for the blue 'Speed boat' signs.<br />This would be your best option if you travel at unusual hours or have to handle more luggage then you can conveniently carry and it will minimize walking across bridges.<br />Depending on the kind of service requested (meet & greet, luggage assistance, minivan transfer or simply water taxi) the price can run from €100 to €160 (4 people with luggage) from Marco Polo Airport to Venice City Centre or to the Cruise Port Terminal. Every additional passenger costs €10-20 up to the maximum of 10 people.<br /> Be aware that the ride can be rocky when crossing the wake of oncoming craft. Always hold on tight when standing. You might also get sprayed with salt water when standing at the open roof.

'''All boat departures''' are 10-15 minutes' covered walk with moving walkways from Marco Polo airport. Exit the arrivals hall towards the bus stop, take an elevator up to departure level, turn to your left along the walkway. Here you will find free trolleys to carry luggage for the short trip to the water taxi departure point. There are also some companies that offer porter services and/or private minivan transfer from the airport to the water taxi departure point.
