The area you are going to is Frenchtown or what is listed as Holiday Inn (no longer).

Have fun.
Funny, I've never seen that nor knew of the bag fee. We've always traveled with a single carryon and I see the fee is actually $6 from the airport to the ferry, plus $2 for the bag.

Here is a true story. First time I did this, I got out and asked how much for two people. I thought he said $60, which I thought was getting ripped off, but thought I should have asked before I got aboard. I went to hand the guy three 20 dollar bills. He stopped and said, "I'm an honest man and can't take that, it's 16 dollars" The accent got me. I gave him 20.

Ya mon. Ilon mon taulk dem way.

Actually there is a large sign posted on the wall just as you leave the baggage area of the airport with all the fares posted. All taxicabs have fare sheets inside for you to see if you request them. If ever you are having problems with a taxi driver, just write down the license plate number and call the Dept of Tourism. We do not like unhappy tourists!!!! The majority of the drivers are good people. If you like your driver, you can always ask him for a card and call to have him pick you up on your return. Most would be glad to haul a group.

If I'm reading the schedule correctly it's $7 fare for 1 mon, and $6 each for a group from STT airport to the CA ferry dock. Red Hook is $13 for 1 mon and $10 each for a group. Plus $2 per bag, plus a tip. Right?

I honestly don't know. I just did a quick Google search and posted the first one that had a schedule. It may or may not be current. The most current rates will be posted on the wall at the airport and inside of the taxis.
