Default how do you get from the pier at Freeport to Port Lucaya

What I am trying to do is catch a tour that starts at 8 a.m. when my ship gets in at 7 is this possible?

You're cutting it close. After they decide it's ok to let passengers disembark, the cruise lines let all the passengers who booked an excursion through the ship off first. Then, they stop each passenger to take pictures. Then, you have to take a taxi to Port Lucaya, and unless you're willing to fork out a lot of $$, the cabs won't leave until they are packed to the gills. The cabs drop you off at the casino, so depending on where your excursion is, you might have to walk a few minutes as well.

However, there are a LOT of taxis available right at the pier, so depending on how many people on cruiseline excursions there are, you might make it. if you don't want to stress about it, see if there's a tour that leaves a little later, or book the tour through the ship.

It's about 100 miles from Freeport to Port Lavaca-so I wouldn't count on it-of course the speed limit on that stretch of road is 75 so maybe-but there's speed traps too. Good luck
