Default Stone island question

I'm sailing on the Splendor 1-24-10 and booked Stone Island through the cruise line. I have been reading on Trip Advisor that this is a much cheaper trip if done "on our own".

Has anyone just walked to the water taxi and paid the $2? Did you feel safe not booking through the ship?

Any thoughts / tips?

Thanks in advance.

I went to Stone Island last year and will be going again in a few months.

We took a water taxi, but it was included in our tour price. We went horseback riding with Randi of Randi's Happy Horses. The price was $35, and it was alot of fun. After riding Randi took us to Victors. The shrimp were huge and delicious. I think the meal came to $12.

I have read you can do it on your own. I would not recommend paying for a ship excursion. Save your money and do it on your own.

Enjoy.

YW.

If you are interested in horseback riding, here's Randi's e-mail address.
randi@randishappyhorses.com

You don't have to pay in advance. She will reserve a horse for you.

Enjoy

Oh, thanks. I'm not brave enough to go horse back riding, so I'll just enjoy the sun and drinks :o I'm hoping for sunny weather.
