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.

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.

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

Have fun.

Re: St. Thomas Charlotte Amalie info

$8 per person each way. They are lined up at both the ferry dock and airport. You will ride with many others and probably not leave until the van is full. Doesn't take long.

Re: St. Thomas Charlotte Amalie info - Taxi info?

Can anyone tell what to expect to pay for cab fare from the STT airport to the CA ferry dock / Pump Room?

Any other advice on cabs? Do I just head for the taxi stand at the airport or make arrangements ahead of time?

Re: St. Thomas Charlotte Amalie info

Thanks everyone. We decided on the pump room for it's pure convenience although a Bennigans like place is awfully tempting

Another vote for the Pump Room. Right at the ferry terminal. Nothing could be easier.
