Does anyone know the easiest way to get from the cruise ship pier in Phillipsburg to Orient Beach?

On my most recent visit a group of 6 of us negotiated for a van to drop us off and then return at a specified time to return us to the ship. Taxi fares are pre-set in St. Maarten (on the Dutch side) and at that time a taxi to Orient Beach was $3 pp.

FROM THE PORT TO ORIENT BEACH IS $7 PER/PERSON ONE WAY. THEY WILL PICK YOU UP AT A SPECIFIED TIME OR YOU CAN FIND A CAB DRIVER THERE THAT WILL TAKE YOU BACK. I JUST CAME OF THE EASTERN CAR. CRUISE AND I WISH I WOULD HAVE KNOWN ABOUT THE WATER TAXI RIGHT THERE AT THE PORT. FOR $5 YOU CAN RIDE ALL DAY, AND IT WILL TAKE YOU RIGHT ACROSS TO A NICE BEACH THAT HAS JET SKIS AND DOWNTOWN FOR SHOPPING IS RIGHT THERE. I WOULD DO ORIENT IN THE MORNING AND WATER TAXI AT LUNCH.
