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.

Check it out. No worries about parking down town. We love it ! Long ago taxies or boats were only way to go from MTP to Charleston. Many of the older neighborhoods in MTP and Awendaw are called 2- 3- 4 -6- 8-10 etc which...More

Fun way to get across the river. The crew were very funny. Bonus-we saw some dolphins while crossing the river.

You can park your car free and travel across the harbour to downtown Charleston. Spend the day, walk to the market, have lunch, without the worry of parking your car in the downtown area. Seeing the water and viewing Ft. Sumter is an added bonus.

we picked a great day and our captain was very informative about things along our ride... only one stop was open due to the storm, so no downtown stop currently

This is a great way to get around and see the nearby points of interest in Charleston. It normally has 4 drop off points, but because the floodwaters of Irma destroyed the dock, there are now only 3. We are hoping the dock at the...More
