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.

Great fun and a perfect length of time for young ones! We rode the taxi from mount pleasant marina to the peninsula so my grandsons could run in the fountain. After an hour, we finished the circuit and returned to the marina.

The water taxi is really a fun way to get back and forth across Charleston Harbor. We departed from Charleston Harbor Marina, so you get to sit and look at all the boats while you wait for the water taxi and you have great views...More

was in the area on a Saturday and jumped on and off....it was a nice day to be on the water and you can't beat the price! It's a great alternative for a boat ride on a budget.

Ideal means to travel across to Downtown Charleston if you visit Patriots point, good value at $12 for the day pass.

The taxi comes around about every 25 mins! There are four stops on the route. When you look at the map, the stops seem to cover a lot of ground, but during the ride you realize it doesn't cover as much as you think. The...More

We wished ee wiuld of taken the taxi. Parking at individual attractions cost way more than the water taxi. Look at visitor centers for additional discount coupons

Great value for money & thoroughly enjoyable way to hop on hop off & visit! The view from the taxi is magnificent & shows Charleston at its best. So convenient for the City and all the waterside attractions.
