GB Express or Shauna

Does anyone know why GB Express round trip is $30 more per person round trip? The description of their services does not seem different than Shauna. Also, has anyone had a good experience not pre-booking a shuttle and just finding one once they get off the plane?

We only used Shauna once, from Anguilla to SXM, and it was not a good experience. An old boat where you sit in a closed tent on top, with (in choppy waters) water getting onto the deck. Alternative was a few seats deep down in the boat. That one experience put us off forever (even though we see others here that are happy with them).

GB Express is a totally different experience.

Never tried to catch a ride from SXM, and GB Express was always pretty full when we took it. Going back it seems to be quite common to catch a shuttle without having a reservation. In fact, that is how we got our Shauna experience.

Just read on another thread that there may be a fee to get from the terminal to the Shauna ferry. Thinking about it (it is a few years back) we may have had to pay for the taxi from Shauna to the terminal.

The GB Express fare includes the ride between terminal and ferry dock.

Haven't used Shauna, but Captain Lyle Connors is a pleasure to travel with on GB Express. Great service, smooth ride, friendly. As we were heading to SXM, another AXA ferry was alongside us, egging Lyle into a "race." He wanted no part of it, and was completely focused on his passengers' comfort. Highly recommended.

We did use Shauna in February, and had no problem with boat, crew or schedule.
