Taxis are almost always available at the ferry dock in Cruz Bay (during regular ferry schedule hours) and also at hotels. They frequently wait for passengers at the taxi stand area at Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay.

Many taxis are multi-destination and some can carry up to 26 passengers; drivers will often wait to fill their vehicle before departing (particularly from the ferry dock and popular beach locations like Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay).

Off-season The last scheduled taxi leaves from Maho at 5:00 PM. Meaning, if you’re at another beach, be on the road by 4:30 PM to flag down the last taxi. You will be stranded if you don’t make other plans, or call the taxi hotline above.
