Piers Island Shuttle Service
(Residents & Guests Only)

PIERS ISLAND SHUTTLE & WATER TAXI

 

Piers Island is a private island of over 100 households located near Swartz Bay. Annually, our boat carries over 1,500 passengers on over 350 sailings. Water taxis runs carry 100's of other passengers and literally tons of luggage, groceries, furniture, appliances, building materials, etc.

The Piers Island Route may only be accessed by Sea Star Members who are Piers Islanders and their guests. Guests of Sea Star Members (including trades)  must either have a Sea Star Member's punch pass in-hand or may purchase single-tickets online with the valid Member's name and lot #.


Once you are a Sea Star Member, you can book a tour, charter or the water taxi, and gain access to the shuttle service by purchasing one or multiple pre-sale Pass Packages which are ONLY available between April 6 - May 31, 2024 and are valid June 1, 2024 to May 31, 2025. We have aimed to offer Sea Star Members a per-ticket cost savings, as well as a potential savings on tours and water taxis.

 

A minimum purchase of 1 pre-sale pass is required to use the scheduled shuttle service. If you do not purchase any punch cards or Pass Packages, you will be unable to use the scheduled shuttle service.
