I was recently staying at the Charleston Harbor Resort. One of the bridges headed back into town was closed, so the other bridge was log-jammed. The hotel staff suggested taking the water taxi into town, then grabbing a taxi/uber. It worked. Made great time to...More

We used the water taxi several times to go between our hotel in Mount Pleasant and Downtown Charleston. It was great, fantastic views during the trip and convenient times to board. Would highly recommend.

Took the taxi over from harbor hotel and was amazed by the Dolphins and friendly staff. This is definitely the way to visit the city.. No traffic or fighting for a parking spot

Easiest and fastest way of floating to downtown. You can bring a bicycle on board for no extra charge. Leaves on time. Great views and conversations. Unique transportation for foot passengers trying not to rent a cab from Patriots Point.

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

Not an overdone ferry ride and it can be wet or cool on a rainy day, but it is an easy ride from the center of tourist attractions on both side. Good look at the harbor and Ravenel bridge, some porpoises and a manatee if...More

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