“Dolphins!”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

We took the water taxi just as a means of transportation over to Patriots Point. We were pleasantly surprised to get more of a ride rather than just straight across and had the opportunity to admire the city from the water. They didn't take too long, and we got to see a lot of dolphins. They ran on schedule. The crew was very friendly.

“Always available to pick u up!”
Reviewed 29 October 2011

We used both companies in Charleston to get to and from further away destinations.. restaurants and a spa. The great part of these, is you feel like you are truly experiencing the flavor of Charleston.

“Helpful driver!”
Reviewed 21 October 2011

We boarded the boat right before rainy weather came in. The driver gave us great advice on how to get back to the location that we boarded the Taxi in case the weather was too bad for the boat to be going. We also got loads of advice on where to eat and things to do downtown!
