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.

Duke is the icing on the cake

Captain and crew were cordial, helpful and very accomodating. When they couldn't fit a group of 5, they called in another taxi to help the folks. Serive was great.

What a fun way to get around Charleston and be on the water at the same time. $10 was a very reasonable fare. The crew were friendly and informative.

Planned to have lunch at the Fish House at the marina with friends visiting from out of town.. Bought tickets on line and planned on taking the taxi over to Charleston after lunch. It was about 1:15 pm when we got to where the taxi departed from and realized we had to wait until 2:00 pm. We were the only... More

We stayed at Mount Pleasant, but took the water taxi over to Charleston. For $10 you can get off and on all day. The crew are very helpful and have alot of history to share. It is very easy to find at all four of their ports. We left the Charleston Harbor Marina in Mount Pleasant at 9:00 for the... More

A great way to get from the Charleston Marina Hotel and Resort to downtown Charleston. Such friendly staff and great service. Highly recommend using this service as it runs more often than the hotel shuttle.

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
