is there decent taxi service?

My husband and I are staying at Sea Colony in Bethany for a long weekend. We were hoping to go out in Dewey on Sunday or Monday night after our baby goes to sleep (my mom is with us too - we're not leaving the baby alone!)

However, we would like to drink so we don't want to drive. Is there decent taxi service that won't cost us an arm and a leg? I looked up the Jolly Trolley but it seems to only go from Dewey TO Bethany and very late at night (far later than parents of a 7-month old who have not had much to drink in the last year can stay up!)

This appears to be the major cab company in Rehoboth/Dewey:


I have never used them, and have no idea how much it would be to go from Bethany to Dewey. When are you going to the beach? Entertainment in Dewey is not as frequent during the fall as it is during the summer. Check out

www.deweybeachlife.com and www.thestarboard.com for when some of the seasonal bars close and what entertainment they have.

Many cab services in Ocean City also service the Delaware beaches. But I believe their fares are unregulated once they're outside of the limits of OC (and certainly outside of Maryland), so you'll want to nail down the fare before you get into the cab.

According to the published schedule, the drop charge is $3 and the mileage rate is $2, so the 11-mile ride between Bethany and Dewey should be about $25. Again, nail this down when you arrange for service.

I've used A Beach Taxi and was satisfied, but that was for a trip entirely within OC. Their website specifically advertises coverage in Delaware.

When you are ready to go home, just let your bartender know, and they will call you a cab. There are a few in the area & they are all the same price.
