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.

Fun Ride!

This is a fun way to get from the resort to the city. Very relaxing! The water taxi is easy to find and the docks are clean.

Best way to go to Charleston from Mt Pleasant. Makes four stops, two in downtown Charleston and two in Mt. Pleasant.

This was the first tine we took the taxi. It's a different way to get to the Charleston harbor. We left from patriots point. It was hard to find, you park at the hotel and get your tickets on the boat at the harbor. The taxi runs every hour. The last pick up at the meeting street/waterfront stop is 7:15.... More

This is a good, easy, and enjoyable way to travel between Mount Pleasant and Charleston. The $10 round trip fare seems more than reasonable given the ease of the trip and absence of paying for parking. The captain and his mate were pleasant and shared a lot of information about the harbor and the city of Charleston (as well as... More

We used the water taxi to get from Patriots Point to Charleston. Very convenient and economical ($10 round trip per person). Very nice staff. And you get to see the bay and dolphins.

We took the Taxi over to downtown from Mount Pleasant, rather than trying to park downtown. We were able to visit the Aquarium and walked along the the river. The timing of the Taxi was perfect.

If you'd like to get out on the water and don't own a boat - this is a great value option! For only $10 a person, you can ride the water taxi all day! We generally ride it across the harbor and back, but it's still a very enjoyable ride! Sit in the front to let your feet dangle out... More

It's great and convenient way to enjoy Charleston from Mt. Pleasant side without worrying about where to park your car. Every time we visit Isle of palms, my husband wants to use water taxi to go to Charleston. He doesn't like shopping so I really think he just want to ride the water taxi.

While staying in Mt. Pleasant recently, we chose to use the water taxi as a means of transportation to/from Charleston. We are glad we did. The ride was relaxing, yet got us to our destination quickly and with ease. I highly recommend it.

My wife and I used this service this weekend, and I am so glad we did! It was very convenient, and was a great way to see the harbor. The staff was friendly, and the weather couldn't have been better. For $10 all day, you can't beat it. You gotta try it!
