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.

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.

We had time to kill in Charleston before catching an evening flight, and we didn't want to walk around in the high heat. The water taxi, leading from the Charleston Marina in Mount Pleasant was a great option as the breeze on the water made...More

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.

Took the Water Taxi from my hotel in Mount Pleasant to downtown Charleston. Convenient, on time and wonderful. The staff was great and very personable. The only way to travel to the old city market part of Charleston. Leave the parking behind.
