Driver was awesome, finding him was tough.

We booked last minute before leaving our cruise ship. Figuring out how to quickly schedule the taxi was not easy. The phone number to call for last minute changes was down at the bottom of the mobile page and not intuitive that we needed to use it. We ended up standing in 3 different lines trying to figure out who could help us. The entire process added an hour before we were on the taxi headed for our hotel. The driver was excellent and handled rough seas very well as well as helping us disembark in high tides where the docks were all under water.
