A little chilly that day but great crew. They had an issue with one of the engines and my buddy and I, being avid boated, pitched in to help fix it!

“Great Service, Pretty ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

The water taxi provided a quick, pretty ride from our hotel in Mt Pleasant to Waterfront Park in Charleston. The $10 all day on-off ticket is a good deal, and there are multiple stops in town. Scott, our pilot, was friendly and pleasant, and very clearly invested in providing great service. We had used the trolley service provided by our hotel until the last day of our stay, and I'm sorry we didn't try the taxi service sooner. The schedule was more convenient, and the ride much more enjoyable.

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We stay in Mt Pleasant because the Water Taxi is convenient to get to Charleston. You don't have to worry about parking and they drop you off at two different sections of Charleston. We enjoy the ride across the harbor and for a $10 all day pass you can't beat it.

“Freindly Fun Crew”

Great service to get around Charleston harbor and to Patriot's point. Great value for the ride. You can get off and on all day at any of the designated points for the same fee paid only once.

“Great value to use all day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed the ride around the harbor, especially seeing the dolphins! My daughter wanted to go around again :) Its a great value & you can use it all day to visit the different sites. The crew was friendly and personable and made sure we spotted the dolphins. Definitely would go again.
