2016-17 cruise ship season

The 2016-2017 cruise ship season commenced in October and will finish late April 2017.

This season 35 cruises will conclude at Station Pier with all passengers and crew having to disembark.

Taxis are in high demand on the days listed below, especially high occupancy vehicles and station wagons. The Taxi Services Commission has authorised Peak service taxis (green tops) to operate additional hours on these days. See approval and conditions:

All taxi drivers are encouraged to support this growing tourism industry and taxi market.

Taxis can access the pier for passenger drop off, or collection, from the managed taxi rank once security has undertaken a quick identification check.

More information on the cruise ship season (including any changes) can be found on the Victorian Ports Corporation website.
