They dock very close to the main st in St Johns. There will be dozens of taxi vans of all sizes & a favorite trip is Nelsons Dockyard, Shirley Heights, a drive through the Rain Forest & then stop off at one of the 365 beaches (one for every day of the year) for an hour or so before returning to the ship. This is a great way to see Antigua & we still had time to walk around the town to see the local way of life. This in my view is the best way of seeing Antigua. A small taxi van can negotiate the narrow roads & streets far better than a 56 seater & of course you can stop/start/move on at your pace without waiting for the inevitable stragglers that pervade every coach journey. Finally the price, work on about 30% of the cruise tour & you should be about right.

Buckley's right about sharing, but the local Taxi Mafia Boss does a lot of the negotiating & he will try to find likewise couples or talk people into filling a few more seats if he can.
