Alan, you do not mention how you are arriving in Simferopol. If you are arriving by train, it may be cheaper to switch trains and go directly to Sevastopol. If by plane, you would need to take a taxi or bus to the train station.
At hour 22, you may need to hire a car and driver in advance as this is quite late to be arriving and expecting to find a taxi or a bus still at the station.
Last summer I arrived in Simferopol at 13:00 hours and had a private car waiting to take me to a village outside of Sevastopol. (I was unable to get train directly to Sevastopol from Kiev on that date. It cost me $20.00 for the car & driver.
I made some advance arrrangements for my return trip from Sevastopol to Kiev and was able to get a ticket for a train leaving from the station is Sevastopol.
If you have contacts in the area, ask them to check the schedules. If you are traveling alone and know no one, there are several people on this site that live in Sevastopol and Simferopol that you can trust.
Have a good trip!
