Public transportation from cruise?

I'll have 2 kids (4 and 2) and we plan on going to a beach for our cruise stop.

On a budget so looking at public transportation.

Is there a bus stop close to the port?

Thinking of going to Jolly or Dickenson since they are close.

About how long would it take to get there on the bus?

Would we be better off in taxi's?

You would be much better off with taxis

There's no bus to Dickenson anyway, and the bus to Jolly means a fairly long walk down the (very busy) Market Street to the West Bus Station - which small children definitely wouldn't enjoy!

A taxi is definitely the way to go.

Taxi prices are fixed by the government and lists of the most regular journeys are readily available.

look at the " quicklinks" section on the right hand side.

The prices quoted are for journeys to and from St Johns or the Airport but it's not too difficult to work out the price between almost any two points e.g. St John's to Jolly Beach is US$18; Ergo US $36 there and back. Remember this is a total cost for up to 4 people in the cab.

We went to Jolly beach, after telling a dozen cabbies we don't need a ride we finally took up the offer near the end of the cruise port shopping area. I think it cost us $48 total and we paid on return.
