    The Water Taxi was great. Affordable, $14.00 per person for an all day pass to be used to get on/off at different locations. My husband and I chose to stay on the boat for the hour long trip. Staff was very welcoming, a great trio. No dolphin sightings but enjoyed it nonetheless.

    , Jun 2022
    It was just as expected a nice taxi ride to downtown and back to Mount Pleasant. We are locals and just didn't want to have to drive and Park downtown. It was a nice little before some dinner at Henry's downtown on Market Street. No Frills just a nice evening ride. Just as a warning you do have to pay for parking at the Patriots Point and hotel parking areas
