Is it possible to make water taxi arrangements at Flamenco, or are all the "better" ones at the dock in town? We'll be arriving late in the day tomorrow (7/29), and camping (no car) at Flamenco for 4 or 5 nights, may go back into town only after the "witching hour", i.e., after that time when all the publicos & tourist services have left. I've read good thiings about Capt. Jack, Capt. Bob, Guilen, Pat, Taz, and am thinking the glass bottomed boat might be a good option for my teenaged daughter, who's not real big on snorkeling (which, she claims, stems from the rude awakening that came when, as a little girl, she was nipped by one of those cute little sunfishies). Possible to arrange with any of these w/out going into town, and do any of the water taxis leave from Flamenco?
Rereading some older posts, I'm wondering how wise my decision to not rent a car is; given that, on Saturday, we'll go to a remote beach, and will go to dinner a couple times, maybe other interesting spots for a bit on another day, especially if it's rainy (does 60% chance of showers mean it'll shower a bunch, or just that we're very likely to get showered on briefly?), anyhow, should I reconsider & rent something from Jerry? Daughter, so far, won't get on the back of a scooter with me driving, plus not so fun in the rain. Sorry, I know "getting around" has been beaten to death, so I'll go back and re-search. Would be helpful to know, though, if it does actually ran & stay cloudy for much of a day this time of year, or if it's just showers.
Thanks once again for your help!
MJ - if I've read between the lines correctly, you have a store or business in town. Can you tell what & where? Thanks!
