After paying $25 for two day passes, the parking lot at Patriot Point comes at a price. Also last taxi from waterfont park is 7:15. Save time, money and keep your options, just drive and park.

We had a wonderful day with grandchildren and family visiting, and found that taking the Water Taxi was a great way to visit 4 points of interest in Charleston and Mt. Pleasant, get of the boat, and spend time at those points of interest, and then get back on the boat to go to the next point. The crew was great, courteous and friendly. The boat was clean and comfortable. We will definitely use their service again.

On-time, clean and very convenient to get to Patriots Point on Saturday. Careful of days of operation in off-season. Only Saturdays in February.

Only open on Saturdays in February, we made sure to catch a ride so my grand daughter could experience, Although I don't recall names the captain was great, took extra time to watch the dolphins in the bay! Thank you again for the great experience!
