Don't miss the boat! Water Taxis make hourly trips across the harbor to downtown Charleston starting at 9am. 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.

Great Service!

Great Service! We enjoyed not having to move the car or worry with downtown parking. The dolphins came right up to the boat on our ride from the dock to downtown.

The Charleston Water Taxi is a great way to get around in Charleston for only $10 for an all day pass. We were staying at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina, so we never had to move our car since the water taxi has a pick-up at the marina. There was plenty of room to sit each time we used...

great way to visit various points of the town and patriots point. Also gives you a good view of the bridge & USS Yorktown from different angles as well as a lovely boat ride and all for $10 for a day pass.

Pleasant and returning to the Marina. As... More

A cheap way to get a sightseeing tour of Charleston harbour. But make sure to pick a day with nice weather, not a too windy day. The boat is open with no shelter.
