    Ferry Docking Location

    Advertisements



    To students on Saba who took the ferry from St. Marteen to Saba,

    I am wondering how far is the ferry docking site from the school and is there a limit on how many laggages (weight) you can bring on board?

    Your response will be appreciated!

    I think there is a luggage limit, but right now it's not really enforced on the ferry unless it's really full of people from what I've seen so far this semester. Do a search of this forum and you can find the amount. I don't remember what it is because I've never had to pay it!
    The ferry docks at Fort Bay which is like 1/2 mile straight downhill from the bottom, where the school is. Don't walk unless you want to go on a challenging hike uphill. Get a taxi or have someone from the school pick you up with your luggage.

    Wolfvgang22,

    Do you have to make special arrangement with the taxi company? Or there are taxi waiting on the dock to take you to your dorm?

    Don't sweat it. Let the school know when you are arriving and see if they will pick you up. If not, stop at the Pop's place right by the dock and ask them to call you a taxi and buy something to drink while you wait a minute.
    When are you starting? I might be able to pick you up if I'm here.
    So there, you have options.

    Salutations "Shawnxyz":

    September 22? Don't you mean August 22? Unless you have some other circumstances going on, in which case I apologize. And "Wolfgang22", mind if I hitch a ride if I happen to catch you there also? Ciao.

    Ciao,

    I am sorry for the typo. I mean September 2 rather than September 22. I start on school on September 5, 2005 and plan to arrive on the island on September 2.

    However, if Wolfgang22 does not mind and you are willing to leave that early/late, I don't mind at all.

    Taxis

    Just in case anyone else is wondering -

    When the ferry comes in there are usually Taxis down there waiting to take pick up students and tourists. They know students are coming in at the beginning of the semester. They also know the flight schedule and there are usually 2-3 taxis at the airport.


    Of course Wolf could just collect gas money and pick everyone up. Hahah I have been known to pick up a few scared-looking students before and help them find their luggage and housing. Gotta help each other out.
