No one mentioned, nor was it posted anywhere, that these are seasonal !!! walked all the way to the end of the dock to see a Teeny Tiny notice stating no Taxis running except on a Saturday.

We love being on the water in Charleston. What better way to come into town from Mt Pleasant, than to take the watertaxi and not have to hassle parking in town.

Water taxi gives you access to 4 different places in Charleston area. We took it from the waterfront park in Charleston to Patriots Point. Very convenient and runs on time. All day access was $10. Well worth it!

We used this taxi to get to Patriot Pointe from downtown Charleston. The trip took about 45 min. It was very relaxing and enjoyable and worth the few dollars it cost in the time we saved getting from place to place

Only way to go when leaving Charlestown for patriots point or vice a versa. Well worth the money. Saved us about 45 minutes travel time one way!
