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.

Staying in Mount Pleasant, we used the Water Taxi to get back and forth from Mt. P to Charleston and it was the best fun way to travel! On time, every time, we were able to visit the places we wanted to and get back when we wanted to. The captain was courteous and gracious and knew his way around... More

We enjoy taking the water taxi from Mt Pleasant over to the Aquarium on a pretty day. It's easy, inexpensive, and a beautiful ride without the traffic! It's a nice way to visit different areas without the hassle of parking, and transportation is always available in some form at the drop-offs. It's a must do!

This is one of the best values you will find in Charleston. You pay once and you can ride it as many times as you like. Much better than a land taxi.

We saw dolphins and great views of the bridge, patriots point and the city. The captain and... More

The Charleston Water Taxi is a great way to see the Charleston waterfront and to get around to Patriots Point and all of the other water front sites.
