Do they have taxis/tour operators near the dock when we get off ship?

None of the Carnival excursions really appeal to us. We'd like to see the caves, a tour of the island and the pink sand beach. Wondering if like other ports there are drivers waiting at the end of the pier offering tours and such? We do have a sunset catamaran booked for 6:30 and we dock at 10:00 a.m.

I had the same issue with the cruise line's excursion offerings and ended up finding some great information about Blue Flag taxi tours on this thread: https://boards.cruisecritic.com/topic/1143028-bermuda-private-guide/  Based on recommendations, I contacted Quinton Bean before our cruise and he gave us a great 4 hour island tour.  It's probably a good idea to book someone in advance so you can work out the details of what you want to see and do.

I'm probably too late for you, but there are both taxis and mini-shuttles.  The mini shuttle to the beach is often the best bet at $7 per person each way.  There is also a public bus system and ferry system that might be good for the caves.

Are there also snorkel trips (by reputable companies) offered at the dock?

 

There is a Helmet Dive trip offered very close to the dock.  Hartley's Helmet Dive is by Calico Jack's and the moon gate.  It's about a 15' dive, no training required.  Different than snorkeling but a really neat experience.
