Default Transportation form San Diego airport to cruise port

Looking at the shore excursions I see that they have a return transfer, but not one from the airport to the dock. Does anyone know how far away the airport is from the dock and what would you recommend...taxi etc?

Thanks

The port is VERY close You can see the runway from the docks/ships. We took a 5 min cab ride. By far the easiest of all the ports to get to. (that I've done)

Yes taxi is the way to go. Also on the return in addition to the taxis there will be shuttle vans waiting that will take you back to the airport. Fare was $5 pp on our last trip. As stated the airport is super close to the cruise port. 8)

Neither... They are private shuttle vans that line up in the taxi area. They go when full so you may have to wait 10 min. 5$ was the price we paid for the van. It could have changed. A taxi would probably be $12/$15.
