Getting a Water Taxi during Festa Del Redentore

Jump to last reply

We were planning on walking up to the counter at the airport on a Sunday morning and ordering a water taxi, however, we are arriving on the Sunday of a festival. Is it advisable to still walk up to the counter when we arrive or will we have a more difficult time with water taxis if the boat regattas are taking place that day? Anyone have any experience arriving in Venice during a festival? Your advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!!

Also, I've read that the regattas take place in the afternoon but have no idea when. I was thinking we would hopefully be checking in by 12:30, have lunch and still be able to see the regattas after lunch-hopefully it will still be going on or starting after 3? Will we be able to see it from the main island?
