How to get from Houston Hobby airport to port at Galveston?

Just talked to the cruise line at Disney and they will no longer be having transfers from Houston Hobby airport to the port in Galveston. Does anyone know how to get from the airport to Galveston? We have not been there before and were looking forward to sailing on the Wonder in October. Help if any one can.

I'm cruising in October as well and found out they will only be doing transfers from IAH airport at that time so I've decided to book my flights into there so I could use the DCL transportation.

We are going on a cruise in May and flying into Hobby, we found a one way car rental through enterprise for $70. You have to call enterprise directly and sometimes they may say there is a drift off fee. Other people have had this happen but they just have called back and sometimes another agent will not say a drop off fee. I hope this helps!

We looked at all of our options and ended up taking a cab. We negotiated in the cab lane with the driver for a flat rate plus tip of a 100 bucks cash for our family of four. On the way back we called Galveston Yellow Cab and they charged a flat rate of 95 bucks automatically---plus tip. They came right to the port within 5 minutes of our calling.
