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.

We stayed near Patriot Point -- the Water Taxi provided delightful service into Charleston (a great "walking" city). The all-day pass was a great bargain!

Having the Water Taxi available from the harbor at our hotel was one of the highlights of our vacation. Being able to get into Charleston in just a few minutes without having to worry about parking, etc. was well worth the very minimal ticket price of $6. Additionally the Captain and boat staff were phenomenal, super friendly, accommodating and had... More

if you are a walker, this is great as you can get dropped off and see the sites. Military is $10 all day. 4 main stops are close to all the tourist areas including the USS Yorktown.

Our large party was able to quickly get a ride on the water taxi. It was a pleasant trip. I would highly recommend this service for those who stay outside the city of Charleston.

We used the water taxi to just take a loop around the harbor with family in town who have young kids. Everyone enjoyed the trip and we saw tons of dolphins, which the captain stopped briefly for everyone to look at since there was a lot of interest. I could see how this would be a nice way to travel... More
