From Noumea to Îlot Maître by water taxi

Hi, I'm sohoon that I plan to go to New caledonia travel by cruise. We are willing to travel by cruise with limited time so we don't have enough time to look around in Noumea and Îlot Maître. We will be arrived at 3pm and we will be departed at 10pm. I searched on internet but water taxi will be finished at 5pm.

(1) Is it true that they will be finished at 5?

(2) Otherwise, is there any other way to go there and come back?

(3) If traveling to Îlot Maître is impossible, then what will be better to do in Noumea?

Hi,

The "scheduled" taxi boats from Anse Vata operate until 4.30PM from May to September, 5.30 the rest of the year: www.ileauxcanards.nc/activites/navette/

Other taxi boats can operate on demand at other times, and may depart from Port Moselle which is closer from the harbour station than Anse Vata: http://www.maisondulagon.nc/en/taxi-boat - however note that depending on the month, the sunset can be as early as 5.30PM.

You can also use the shuttle boat of the hotel located on Ilot Maitre, departing from Port Moselle as well. Timetable at the bottom of this page: www.glphotels.nc/escapade-ilot-maitre-en.html
