After completing the scuba diving portion of our trip, my wife and I will be arriving at the the Tawau airport at approximately 16:30 on August 30th, and we need to get to Lahad Datu for the night for our tour that starts the next day. How difficult would it be to hire a taxi from Tawau airport to Lahad Datu at 1630? Approximately how much would the taxi cost? Do we need to pre-book the taxi ahead of time, or can we just show up at the airport on August 30th and arrange this taxi on the day of? Are there any other suggestions?
Note: We cannot fly from Tawau to Lahad Datu on August 30th due to scuba diving restrictions within 24 hours. We also have to be at Lahad Datu on the night of August 30th due to pre-booked tours.
Thank you for your help!
