sherut taxi to Dead Sea

We are arriving at the airport in Tel Aviv on a FRIDAY afternoon just after 3 pm. Are there sherut taxis at the airport? We are going to Ein Boqek, Dead Sea. If there are no SHERUTs, does anyone know how much a taxi would cost from the airport? We are two persons.

If you want to get a shared taxi, you usually have to make those arrangements ahead of time. One company that goes from Ben Gurion to Ein Bokek is Seshir (www.seshir.co.il), but they are kind of upscale. We rented a car and drove to Ein Bokek (and on to Eilat), but we met folks there who used Seshir and it cost US $50 per person. That doesn't seem too bad, considering the length of the trip. I'm pretty sure that Seshir travels on Shabbat.

The Egged bus line #421 goes from downtown Tel Aviv to Ein Bokek, but this won't work for you - they leave in the morning and don't run on Saturday.
