Do you collect from port as we here for a day on a cruise.
We negotiated with a driver waiting just outside the dock. Paid an amount for the whole day and they drove us to a number of places, including some shopping, sight seeing and a beach.
Agree with the answers, just take a taxi and ask the price upfront.
I confirm answers and recommend use taxi to go to Big Buddha
When you disembark you will find like normal, taxis outside the ship that will take you to the big Buddha...wether the ship docks at sea ethier at Patong or Phuket Port , big Buddha is easily reached...remember bargain hard for your taxi fare...always better if there are 4 of you.
You can take a taxi to send you to Big Buddha and request taxi driver to wait and send back to Port when you are done - please negotiate and agree on taxi fare before getting on taxi. You may need consider the time you have because journey to/fro Big Buddha depends on the port location and traffic congestion.
Pretty much any taxi will take you there but usually they offer set day tours.
It might be better to see if the cruise port has a tour for this location as it’s pretty far away from the port. If not a taxi can take you there.
Getting local taxis are pretty easy in and around Phuket island and they will easily take you to Big Buddha ...in case you want to take more convenience then you can also try with Grab Car which is like Uber..but I found prices bit higher than usual taxis
