Charleston Water Taxi is run by owner Scott Connelly and h8is assistant is Zach. We were in Charleston, SC for the day on Wednesday September 3rd while on the RCCL Vision of the Seas 10 day cruise to Bermuda. You can see the Waterfront Park dock right in from the cruise ship. DIRECTIONS: Leave the ship, turn left on Concord... More

The water taxi was not only a convenient way to cross the river, it was also like a tour. The operator provided ongoing narrative about the things we were seeing, stopped so we could see dolphins and take photos, and kept us entertained. And they were always on schedule. Can't beat it.

You get the wind in your hair, there is shade if you want it and you can see everything! The harbor, Patriot's Point, Ravenel Bridge and all the boats are beautiful to see! I have been on it 4 times and have seen dolphins every time!

Great remedy to the parking and driveing problems of the old small streets of Charleston. Easy access with four different stops around the harbor

This is a wonderful way to get from point A to point B in Charleston! The staff is friendly, the ride is relaxing and it is enjoyable to strike up a conversation with the other passengers! We were fortunate to see dolphin on both our trip from the Charleston Resort and Yacht Club and back! Well worth the $10.00 round... More

The water taxi was easy to find and a great way to get to Charleston points of interest without having to drive and find parking. Highly recommend!

We missed doing the event we had planned so decided to take a ride on the water taxi instead on our fist evening in Charleston. Cost is $10 per person and you pay the guy on the taxi. They are pretty low key about collecting the money--we came on at the same time as a large group and they never... More

We decided to take the taxi around the harbour, for a change from walking around. It was handy to get the taxi at Waterfront Park, and we took it around to Patriot's Point, where we got off to tour. Later took the taxi back around to Waterfront Park. A good deal for $10 for all day, and it was right... More
