The easiest way of getting to Cathedral Cove is with the Cathedral Cove Water Taxi! You don't need to make a booking as the water taxi service has pick-up and drop-off every 30 minutes* from Hahei or Cathedral Cove. Just look for the big yellow and black flags on Hahei Beach in front of the main Hahei Beach car park.
You will have time to explore, photograph, swim and enjoy the very special Cathedral Cove in the 1 hour at the cove. As Cathedral Cove is part of the marine reserve, please leave your fishing gear at home! Do remember to bring your water, sunscreen, warm clothes, towel, snorkelling gear and camera.
Please note that there are no rubbish or toilet facilities at Cathedral Cove, you will need to leave only footsteps in the sand and bring out all rubbish with you. There are bins on the boat for small amounts of rubbish.
