We stayed at The Beach Club and used the water taxi several times to go back and forth between our resort and downtown Charleston. Punctual and clean. The boat captains are happy to answer any questions and give advice on anything in the Charleston area....More

Great boat tour and very informative. If I am in a city that is on the water I like to take the water tour. It allows you to see the city from a different perspective. Highly recommend this water tour.

Nice way to travel inner city Charleston. The boat takes time to play with the Dolphins. Additionally, runs reasonably on time. Nice experience
