Charleston Water Taxi is great for going from Charleston to Mt. Pleasant, especially if you are on a bicycle! We just took the bikes on board with us and then explored Mt. Pleasant all the way to Shem Creek. If you are staying in Mt....More

Great way to get around in Charleston. My family came in from out of town and the water taxi was fun and informative. I'll definately ride again under similar circumstances.

A nice ride with friendly staff. The taxi was on time both going and coming back. We were fortunate in that we saw dolphins on the way back.

For $10 you can ride the water taxi all day if you want and get off at several stops... the Aquarium and the Historic District as well as the USS Yorktown. So sorry it only runs on Sat in the winter. Very nice service.
