Taxis & Tours
Taxis and tour guides are a very good way to find out all about the island, and a useful way to organise a fishing trip or a visit to the caves. Taxi’s operate with standard fares that are set by Barbuda Council. If you arrive at the airport or the ferry wharf there will often be a taxi already there picking up others, who can take you to where you need to go, just look for a tx number plate or ask someone, but it’s much better to call ahead (there are no taxi ranks at either the airport or the ferry wharf) and book the taxi for your journey or find out about a tour, before you come to Barbuda.
If you hire a car it can be delivered to you on your arrival, and you can also ask a local guide without transport to come with you on trips to dive wrecks or visit the caves or other places of interest. Local knowledge is important if you want to see some of the off-the-beaten-track and secret parts of Barbuda.
Some of the hotels in Antigua do day tours to Barbuda and the Barbuda Express Ferry also offers this service through Hillside Tours (listed below) if you wish to see the most popular parts of Barbuda and only have one day.
