Generally speaking the water taxis stop running at dusk but there are some who will shuttle you after dark if you make an arrangement with them. Most recommendations are to use a land taxi for the return trip after dark. Tthere will be plenty of them hanging out in West End near the traffic circle.

From what I understand the price shifts after dusk as well.

Our Sunwing rep told us that a taxi shouldn't be anymore than $10 to

Westend...she neglected to tell us that it was $10 per person...ridiculous....didn't take us long to realize our Sunwing rep wasn't the brightest crayon in the box

Um, you Sunwing Rep wasn't wrong. Taxi operators are not the most honest people (IMHO) on the island.

The average cost before dark from West Bay to West End is $10.00, less if you aren't a gringo.

let's see... don't do it myself, but folks have talked about IB having a water taxi that can be arranged for later than dusk trips...

when we need a taxi after dark from a restaurant, we ask them to call one - we feel safer that way than picking one up on the street... we know the restaurant wants us safe to come back again so they will pick a reliable driver... and ask them to establish the fare ahead of time. We do expect to pay double or a bit more after dark than we pay in the daytime.
