Awesome experience with our 1 and 4 year old. $10 all day pass per person. Kids under 3 (maybe 3.5) are free. The boat has a cover, goes slow, and they have a covered area to ride in during the rain (which it does a lot of in the summer). Easy stroller access, just one step to lift over. Worked out great for our little ones! Can't wait to do it again. Also, we went on a Saturday and never had a problem with a large crowd or a long wait. If you have small children, you'll be happy to know there is a nice restroom at the marina. There was no changing table, but there is a large counter space between sinks.

Took this to go over and visit the USS Yorktown. They run every hour and is a nice way to get a nice boat ride out on the water.

Great for getting back and forth between peninsulas. Great service, great people. We stayed in Mt Pleasant, found parking in Charleston expensive and hard to come by. Free parking in one of their Mt Pleasant lots made it a much better day.

The boats leave on time every half hour. Nice quick trip across the harbor. They went out of their way to accommodate us when we were late due to the crowds. Very nice folks and we appreciated the help. Will use it again instead of driving all the way to the Yorktown or Patriot's point for a visit.
