Take a regular metered Taxi, from the regular rank queued-up just outside, as you exit the ARRIVAL HALL at the airport. The taxi fare to the Ely's Harbour area, out in Sandy's Parish, should run $65 or so.

You may NOT carry luggage aboard public buses from the airport.

Can we take a ferry from the airport? I have read that you can't take luggage on the buses. We would have carry on luggage.

>>>...There are *** NO *** public ferry routes that serve the airport....nor are there any alternative taxi/ferry route itineraries that will save you much (or any) cost...nor time ...BUT...they will most definitely generate a whole lotta' hassle and *** A-G-G-R-A-V-A-T-I-O-N ***.

Till it's all said and done, this option is not going to save you much money and is most DEFINITELY not worth the hassle. Take the taxi and consider the ride from the airport to Ely's Harbour a scenic tour of Bermuda, which it will be. The taxi ride will be an enjoyable experience, especially considering you've never seen Bermuda before.

More like $40-$45 (or so) taxi-ferry-taxi,,,+++ PLUS +++ the H-A-S-S-L-E (after a day of travel through airports and flights)....and only IF, assuming flight arrival times and Orange route ferry schedule mesh....doin' this rollin' luggage along in your wake.

NO Orange Route Ferry service on Saturday & Sunday.

Monday, Wednesday & Thursday--last Orange route ferries run at 3:30 & 5:30 PM

Tuesdays & Fridays--last Orange route ferry run at 2:15 PM

Given inbound flight arrival schedules....taxi-ferry-taxi *** MIGHT *** 'work' (hassles 'n all) on Mondays, Wednesdays & Thursdays.
