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 use the water taxi a lot to go to Charleston. There is free parking at Patriot's Point and the water taxi takes you directly to Waterfront Park in Charleston. It runs 6 dollars per person (one way). Check their schedule, in the winter they run only during the weekend (or Saturday)

My wife and I were looking for something different to do on our last day of being in town for a wedding. Absolutely enjoyed our ride (except for the pesky sand gnats). We had the great gentleman running our boat on Sunday the 23rd. Very nice and knowledgeable. We say many dolphins on our ride. We decided to just do... More

A little expensive if you have more than 1 person you are paying for. The drivers were friendly enough. It's a taxi, so don't expect a history lesson or anything.

I took the taxi with a girlfriend just for fun. The captain was very pleasant & informative. Answering all our questions & pointing out attractions to us. Even though it was cold, it was great. They did have plastic sides up, so nobody got wet. I'm going to go again in the hot weather & really enjoy the ocean breeze.

We loved the cruise around the harbor. The shopping venues were wonderful; the markets were fun to stroll around. There are so many restaurants and it was so hard to choose. Come hungry.

We really enjoyed our ride over to Charleston. The Captain and his mate were knowledgeable about Charleston and fun to talk with.

Very much enjoyed the boat tour. The guide was very informative. My fav part of the ride was water level with The Fighting Lady {U.S.S. Yorktown.} The reason being, I had seen her at that level many times because I ran a 40' fiberglass officers boat from her. She was my home from Jan. 1967 to June of 1970. Have... More

We've been to Charleston many times and usually drive downtown and park in a garage somewhere. This time we stayed in a hotel on Mount Pleasant and decided to take the water taxi over. It was like seeing Charleston in a completely different way all over again. We picked it up at Patriots Point and rode over to the Waterfront... More

We stayed in Mount Pleasant and had a great time taking the water taxi over to Charleston and back. We were able to leave the car at the Charleston Harbor Resort and take the water taxi to Waterfront Park. We then toured Charleston on foot and by using the free downtown trolley then picking up the taxi again at the... More
