Alilaguna water bus -- crowded at 8 p.m.?

Jump to last reply

Several years ago my family, at my urging, used the Aliguna water bus to get from the airport to our hotel. It was a pretty miserable experience in the mid-afternoon. We waited quite a while to get on the bus and it was overcrowded, so we had to wait 30 minutes for the next one on a floating platform that made everyone seasick; but if you didn't stand on the platform you wouldn't be able to get on the next bus because of the crowd. Then when the next bus arrived, everyone in European style pushed and shoved and it was all we could do to get on it.

We're going to be arriving in Venice at 7:15 p.m. on a Saturday night in June, which would likely put us at 8-8:30 in trying to get on the water bus. Does anyone have any experience of using the bus at this time of night? I don't want to have to battle a crowd.

(I wrote about our rather miserable experience on my blog, for anyone interested):
