STT Resident: I don't see anything specific for the Ferry Terminal/Seaborne Terminal. What would it be listed as?

I think the taxi will charge you $4/per bag.

"Luggage: A flat rate of $2 per bag shall be added to the fare for each passenger. The rate for items greater than 30"x20" shall not exceed $4 per item."

STT Res - Is that rate $2/bag for the ferry or for the taxi? I thought taxi always charged $4/bag and $3/person (well, from airport to Crown Bay Marina). Unless after more than 10 years they have been overcharging me?

Ah.......I just checked the taxi rate reference you provided. You're right! (of course - smile). Maybe our bags have always been interpreted as the $4 type (30"x20")......seems all the taxi drivers (for us anyway) have charged us $4/bag regardless of the size. Even my roll-on carryon they always have charged me $4/bag. Guess I'm going to have to speak up and remind them of the published rates. .....I detest getting into an "educational" session with taxi drivers. Usually is a waste of breath. But, I will print these rates and carry with me when we go down next month.
