Owner description: 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.

“A great way to get to the Yorktown and Patriots Point”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We took the Charleston Water Taxi over to Patriots Point to tour the USS Yorktown and highly recommend this means of getting there. No hassles for parking, an easy walk to the pier from anywhere in the historic district of Charleston and you get a great sense of the size of the Yorktown as you near it by water. The price of the water taxi is also reasonable and the 2 man crew were very courteous and comical.

“A Must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

You have got to get on the water and see all the local sites from the Water Taxi. It's a wonderful relaxing ride. It's hard to look away from the beautiful sites, but make yourself watch the water because you're sure to see the dolphins. It's almost like a racing game they are playing.
