Elbow Beach to Somerset Village

We're staying at Elbow Beach Hotel and are contemplating a fishing boat excursion that departs Somerset Village at 8:30am. We were told that there is a no. 7 bus route that would take us there but that seems pretty ambitious for an 8:30AM excursion. Having never been to Bermuda before can anyone tell me what we might expect to pay for a cab ride (which I'm told is 1/2 hour) from Elbow Beach to Somerset Village? Thanks.

>>>..We're staying at Elbow Beach Hotel and are contemplating a fishing boat excursion that departs Somerset Village at 8:30am...<<<

BERMUDA REEF FISHING ??...'..Ellen B..' ??...departing from the Public Wharf at Mangrove Bay ??

The 1st run of the day for the #7--Hamilton-Dockyard (**NOT** #7- Hamilton-Barnes Corners) bus route departs the main BUS terminal in downtown Hamilton at 7:00 AM. (approx. 14 mins. to Elbow Beach) The next run isn't until 8:00 AM (also a school run)...so unless you depart very early, the bus probably isn't going to serve.

Via TAXI you should probably allow 40 minutes from Elbow Beach to the Somerset Village neighborhood---taxi fare should run approx. $30-$35 (taxi fare rates may increase 25% during 2014 ??).

**IF** your fishing excursion is with Bermuda Reef Fishing--'Ellen B'...the nearest bus stop for MANGROVE BAY--PUBLIC WHARF will be out on the main Somerset Road...then a short walk (approx. 600 yards) back in along Mangrove Bay Rd. to the PUBLIC WHARF.
