We used Marahau water taxis to help us get around the park, often at short notice when walkers couldn't go any further. They were helpful, friendly and went above and beyond the call of duty. A brilliant company.

Great service. Booked a water taxi ride from Marahau to Anchorage the day before our planned walk. Fantastic and friendly service. On time - a real bonus with the added sightsighing on route.

Excellent service and organization. Booked a water taxi to Bark Bay two days prior to reservation. Expected point-to-point shuttling, but was pleasantly surprised when taxi driver paused along the route to point out interesting features of our journey. Office staff were also helpful and confident.

The watertaxi takes you to all different Station of the hiking trails and you can hike as Long as you want to get picked up again. This allows you to see more of the park. And it is fun to go with this speedboat.
