Reviewed August 9, 2013

I had a blast! We took the taxi to Mt Pleasant and it was a lot of fun. The driver was nice and super safe. I am an avid boater and was at ease the whole way there and back! Got to see dolphins and pelicans and the driver was really cute too!

“Worth $10.00”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Round trip only costs $10.00 per person. It's a nice ride and we even saw dolphins. Glad that we went.

“An alternative to keep in mind”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Took the water taxi from IOP to charleston $10 all day pass provides you with unlimited rides. The ride is truly relaxing and it gives you an opportunity to see the bridge from a different perpective.. During the ride we were able to catch pods of dolphins swimming which was really a bonus. The taxi drops you off at the marine center where you can catch the CARTA to the visitor's center.
