You can actually see the port from the hotel, but you have to go around the port and over a draw bridge that will sometimes open to allow a yacht or two through . 10 to15 minutes and about $ 10.00 should do it. If the cab driver is honest, there are no extra charges for suitcases. Have you checked into whether you can get a hotel shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel and perhaps from the hotel to the pier? Send the hotel an email and ask.
