“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

What can be better than a boat ride when the temperatures are up in the 90's? There are only three stops but the round trip takes about an hour and a day pass costs $10. The staff were really friendly and besides the ride we got to see the dolphins in the river. The taxi takes you from the maritime Centre over to Patriot's Point where the big Naval ships are moored (Museum) and also stops at Charleston Bay Marina. We did the one hour round trip before getting off at the Marina and walking round to Patriots Point to get the taxi back.

“Great experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Not my first Water Taxi ride... All departures and arrivals have been on time.. Great way to get to Charleston from Mt. P side without having to find parking downtown.. Views on the trips across have always been spectacular and it gives you that "on the water " fix...

Great way to see dolphins, beautiful view of the bridge, easy to get on and off, and it's only ten dollars for the whole day!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Don't waste your money on other expensive tours. We paid ten bucks each for an all day pass that took us to the aquarium and other landmarks. We even saw dolphins!
