In town on business and this is one of the many "breaks" I took while I was there. Fun way to travel. Made me wish Colorado had more water

Used this means of travel to get to Patriots Island on our travels to Charleston April 2018. Bit of a rainy day, but stayed dry on the taxi!

I enjoyed riding on the water taxi rather than trying to find a place to park in Charleston! I would do it again!

Best and most convenient way to get around the harbor. Don’t be put off by the small sized boats because it is a very pleasant ride and you get a more intimate view of the harbor sights.

Despite my toddler wanting to jump into the water the whole time, we had a great time aboard the taxi. The crews were genuine, helpful and very friendly. Worth the costs if you're going into downtown and don't want to drive/park.

I would think so, but I'm not sure if there are rules pertaining to it. It was not crowded when we were riding
