Having seven people, we cannot take the usual taxi, unless we take two. Is there another way to get to Lousibourg?
Thanks in advance for your help!

I don't really want to rent a van since we are only going there and back. Does anyone know if there is something similar to Uber? Or taxi service? We can split into 3 and 4, if needed. Also, how expensive would that be from the cruise port to Louisbourg?Using TaxiFareFinder and assuming it is working properly, the taxi fare would be about $78 plus tip one way. Travel time would be about 45 minutes.

Thanks! Van is rented. : )
And since you have the van (good move!) if you have time you can check out the Lighthouse near LouisbourgWhen we went to Louisbourg, we spent a little too much time at the Fortress and didn't get to go out to the lighthouse. Next time we will not miss it!
There is a hiking trail on the opposite side of the bay called the Louisbourg lighthouse trail. A fantastic hike. The site of the first lighthouse in Canada. There is a lighthouse still there next to the ruins of the original.
We're in Sydney on a Saturday. Are there any options for tours from the dock. Not comfortable with doing rental car after hours drop-off.There are not enough activities or much things to do near the port where the cruise ship docked.
