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

Want to go to town and not drive. This is the way to go. $10 per person (look for the $1 off coupon - $9) for all day. The ride over to the city only 4 people on the boat and the captain was very informative and friendly. On the trip back the captain stopped the boat so the passengers... More

Dogs are allowed on the water taxi, however they are not allowed at Patriots Point (USS Yorktown). We had a small pup in a backpack carrier so they let us slide by, but I don't think that would happen again. So plan to catch the Harbor Resort taxi at the top of every hour. I thought it was worth the... More

We had a bit of trouble finding the boat dock since there was some construction going on.But found it very worthwhile and a fun way to see the historic downtown, the Yorktown and some other sites. The crew doen not provicde any commentary on the sites. We enjoyed it and do suggest that others take a ride.

Convenience and the new experience. We had visited Tommy Condon's Irish Pub and having enjoyed a few brews, were glad to be safely transported!

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

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.
