When Placing an Online Order we require the Delivery Address :

Water Taxi Details:

It is the customer's responsibility to arrange a water taxi for delivery. There are a number of companies (listed below).  Different companies run different delivery times/days to various bays. We suggest contacting them directly, to discuss where your delivery is to go & they will tell you the delivery times/prices. The Available Delivery Times are available to select when picking which boat company you are using in the checkout screen.
