It should take about 20 minutes by taxi and cost around 30 Euros.

Salve Ted!

What about a water taxi? How long does it take? About how much is the fare in Euros?

There's a bus to the carpark at the head of the Grand Canal. It's cheap and takes about 20 minutes. Or you can take a cab.

The carpark is at the "top" of the Grand Canal, not far from the main railway station. It is about 20 minutes by road (bus or cab) from the airport to the carpark. You can hop on a Grand Canal vaporetto (water bus) from the carpark/bus depot.

Water taxis are a very classy and convenient way to get around in Venice.

HOWEVER, they are VERY EXPENSIVE.

Don't set foot in one until you get a firm price from the driver. Makes sure price includes all passengers and all luggage.

TedC is right, but please understand that he is referring to water taxis, not water busses. The vaporettos (busses) are Venice's answer to streetcars. You can buy full day or multi-day tickets for reasonable money and ride them all day long if you want.

The best way, as far as price, is to simply take a taxi (land). It should take no more than 20 min. An alternative (much more romantic and fun) is to take a water taxi. These are beautiful wooden speed boats with a covered and open area. The problem is that they are very expensive. From the airport pier to the ship would be about $90 as opposed to a taxi which would be a fraction of that cost.
