Ahoy, Sydney! Your UberBOAT is Arriving Now.

February 6, 2014 / Sydney

Uber Sydney is always hard at work figuring out how to make Sydney an easier city to navigate, and this Saturday from 12 to 8pm, we’re offering another solution: UberBOAT!

Between 12 and 8pm Saturday, you can use the Uber app to request a water taxi pickup in minutes.

Not sure where to go? Whether you feel like taking a cruisy 10 minute trip from Vaucluse to Mosman, spending some well-earned shore leave at one of Sydney’s premier waterfront venues, or hitting the harbour with a bottle of bubbly, Uber and our positively ship-shape array of partners will have you 3 sheets to the wind!

  1. Download the Uber app for iPhone, Android, or Blackberry
  2. Between 12pm – 8pm Saturday, request the “UberBOAT” option via your app. Water taxis can pick you up from any public or private dock on Sydney Harbour.
  3. If there is an empty boat nearby, you’ll soon see a 16 seat water taxi cruising towards you on your Uber app!

Bear in mind that availability will be very limited. Please try again if you can’t get a ride on your first request. If demand is crazy, more boats will log onto the Uber system – in fact, we might even make UberBOAT a regular feature.


An UberBOAT ride for you and up to 15 mates will cost $40 plus $3 per minute. As always, you can fare split your boat ride with your fellow able seamen and women. Sample fares:

  • Rose Bay – Mosman: $61
  • Watson’s Bay – Mosman: $70
  • Circular Quay – Double Bay: $79
  • Circular Quay – Woolwich: $70
  • Watson’s Bay – Manly: $76


* All venue offers are valid for Saturday 8th Feb only at the listed venues. Show an Uber e-mail receipt dated that day to redeem an offer. Each offer can be used once per receipt/group. For Ripples Chowder Bay please call on approach 02 9960 3000. Bookings essential at Ormeggio At The Spit, Ripples Chowder Bay and Aqua Dining.
