We didn't have to worry about parking, we left the car at the hotel and rode the water taxi all day.

Overview

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.

The owners are local guys and run the boats, so the service is excellent. Dolphins everywhere. Kids love it. Very safe and one of the best ways to get around Charleston. A MUST.
