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

We stayed on Mount pleasant, taking the water taxi was great way to get to downtown Charleston. I liked we parked our car for free, boarded the pontoon boat and relaxed. It is $10 each for all day. The boat picks up 2 locations on Charleston side and 2 on Mount Pleasant side, it comes every hour to each destination.... More

We loved being able to leave our car in Mt. Pleasant and travel to Charleston without the traffic/parking hassle. They were pleasant, on time and reasonably priced.

My only complaint would be to go faster on really hot days. It get extremely hot at the front of the boat with no shade.

I took the Water Taxi from Charleston over to the Yorktown "Patriots Point" and was a lot of fun and very relaxing ride. They stop at 4 places and for $10 good for the day. You can get off and on or just ride round trip. On the way back we saw several porpoises and that was worth the price... More

What a beautiful and relaxing way to get downtown from Mt. Pleasant! It is a harbor tour and taxi all in one!

The water taxi is a great value and convenience. It is a quick but different alternative to arrive in Charleston proper and not have to worry about driving and parking. In the August heat it was also beautifully cool.

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.

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
