Not my first Water Taxi ride... All departures and arrivals have been on time.. Great way to get to Charleston from Mt. P side without having to find parking downtown.. Views on the trips across have always been spectacular and it gives you that "on the water " fix...

Don't waste your money on other expensive tours. We paid ten bucks each for an all day pass that took us to the aquarium and other landmarks. We even saw dolphins!

Pleasant and inexpensive way to get around the Charleston area. Seeing the dolphins was a bonus. I definitely recommend using the water taxi service.
