Latest Info on Taxi to Coral World

I want to book the turtle encounter at Coral World on our own. Can somebody tell me how easy it is to get a taxi there and back and what the cost round trip for a family of three would be? I've searched the forum, and most of the info is pretty old.

Thanks!

We went to Coral World in 2011 when we spent a week @ The Marriott Frenchman''s Reef..the cab for 4 was about $50 each way...on the way we got dropped off @ the downtown..just know coral world is small..we got here @ 11 & all the encounters were sold out.
Also traffic is horriable in St.Thomas

There are plenty of taxis available at the port and at Coral World...and don't forget that you can enjoy COki Beach as well (right across the parking lot from Coral World). If there is not a taxi waiting at CW, the people in the gift shop will be happy to call one for you. I believe that we paid $5 per person each way.

Also, check the Coral World web site and the tourist magazine at the port--there are sometimes discount admission coupons available.

Thanks for the info! I'm a little confused, though. cinmouse paid $100 round trip while kcashner would have paid $40 for the same round trip ride. I guess you need to practice "buyer beware" when engaging a cab in St. Thomas.

We were planning on booking the Turtle Encounter in advance, so we won't have to worry about the attraction being sold out, but thanks for the tip.

We paid more like 9-10 bucks per person each way.
