Leave the car in Mt Pleasant at the Charleston Harbor Resort at Patriots Point and avoid the parking hassle. $10 all day pass allows you to come and go when you please. Water Taxis land at Waterfront Park/Market St. and the Charleston Maritime Center next to the Aquarium Wharf. The water taxis make a scenic 4 mile loop around Charleston Harbor checking out dolphins on the way. Great for kids and grown-ups who just want to get on the water. « less

Nice little jaunt around the Charleston waterfront. On Sunday morning, there were quite a few passengers, but they tapered off at each stop. A nice trip on the water.

Used the water taxi to go from Patriots Point to Charleston. We saw dolphins! Very convenient and not expensive.

A relaxing & quick way to get around this fine city. The drivers were friendly and informative. They pointed out the dolphins as they played in the water and even slowed down for those of us with a camera so we could have that "kodak moment." Very reasonably priced and the "all day ticket" let's you get on and off... More

The Charleston Water taxi is a great value for tourists. The price is cheap and the taxi sticks to their published schedule.

Excellent way to come to Charleston if you stay on Mount Pleasant or the isle of Palms. Nice transportation to cross the Cooper river and see in the same shot Charleston harbor, the cable-stayed bridge (A.J. Ravenel Jr bridge) and the World War II aircraft carrier USS Yorktown,

The water taxi was only 10 for all day riding. We got on and rode it to patriots point to tour then got back on and rode it to all the stops it makes. We saw tons of dolphins following us around the bay rising up out of the water. The guys that run it were very friendly and offered... More

Loved taking the water taxi! It comes once an hour, and it's a lovely little jaunt across the river. We even spotted a dolphin :)
