Official Launch of Malta Water Taxis
Malta’s brand new Water Taxi service is officially launched on Tuesday 28th June during an event held at the Valletta Waterfront under the auspices of the Hon. Austin Gatt, Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Communications at 12:00 hrs.
Bright yellow in colour the Water Taxis are instantly recognizable. They were built in the UK and comply with strict safety and operational guidelines. They are approved and licensed by Transport Malta. The certification of the vessels and our licence enables us to work in most weather conditions and can also carry passengers safely at night.
The Water Taxis are based on the modern Rib design and have overhead canopies and protective side screens; they are high powered and can operate within harbour areas or alternatively full fill the role for passenger transfer to other destinations around the islands, including Gozo.
The service has now been in operation for three weeks and will initially operate with 2 boats, during this period, they have established designated pick up and drop off points throughout the islands. As a result commuter services will start to operate as of next week, 4th July with a morning and evening time table for ease of commuting between the Three Cities and Valletta Waterfront, Sliema and Valletta Waterfront or Marsamxett.
Various water taxi stands have been set up by Transport Malta which includes Sliema Ferries, Valletta Water front (Laguna basin), Boiler wharf (Sengela) and Cottonera Waterfront (Birgu). These are being frequently used by our customers.
Malta Water Taxis can provide a vital sea link to places of interest, holiday resorts and other water front destinations thus providing an alternative and greener mode of transport.
Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) offices around Malta will carry information packs and brochures.
