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

Excellent way to come to Charleston if you stay on Mount Pleasant or the isle of Palms. Nice transportation to cross the Cooper river and see in the same shot Charleston harbor, the cable-stayed bridge (A.J. Ravenel Jr bridge) and the World War II aircraft carrier USS Yorktown,

The water taxi was only 10 for all day riding. We got on and rode it to patriots point to tour then got back on and rode it to all the stops it makes. We saw tons of dolphins following us around the bay rising up out of the water. The guys that run it were very friendly and offered... More

Loved taking the water taxi! It comes once an hour, and it's a lovely little jaunt across the river. We even spotted a dolphin :)

We bought a day pass but really only used one trip from USS Yorktown to Charleston and back. We spent a lot more time in Charleston than we planned so there wasn't much time for the water taxi. It was calm and relaxing and the guides were very friendly.

Excellent service from Mt Pleasant to Charleston it travels on the hour and was on time for the outbound and return trips. It drops you off at the centre where you can catch a horse carriage ride of the city sights.

Loved this refreshing ride. My eighty year old mother was with me and it was gentle enough for her frail self. There are places to sit in the shade or get some sun while you enjoy the harbour!

This was $10 each to use anytime during the day. Stops off at a couple of points and very convenient to get the free bus around Charleston. A few people had taken their bikes onto the ferry as Charleston is quite easy to cycle around.

We love taking the water taxi! The views are absolutely amazing and the people who 'ruin the boat' are always friendly and keep the taxi running on time! Give it a try, you will enjoy!
