Only open on Saturdays in February, we made sure to catch a ride so my grand daughter could experience, Although I don't recall names the captain was great, took extra time to watch the dolphins in the bay! Thank you again for the great experience!

Get to the front of the boat leaving the dock and you will see dolphins swimming at the front of the bow. Interesting, good historical content, and funny

We used the water taxi to visit the USS Yorktown complex. Friendly service and punctual. Took about 20 min to get to the Yorktown from the Aquarium stop.

We went to Mt Pleasant for antique shopping, a visit to Shem Creek and a great lunch at Page's Okra Grill ....took the water taxi over to Mt Pleasant Harbor Resort and then an uber ride into town. Walked a little, but worth it.

Took the taxi from the Aquarium and went to the designated locations. Crew was friendly and informative of each area the taxi was heading to. Saw several dolphins along the way. Great to get a close up of the battleships and submarine in dock
