    Amazing break from hot weather

    while in Charleston, we decided to give the water taxi a try to get a break from walking around in the heat. this was the perfect choice! We rode one leg then got off for lunch before boarding back to finish the tour.

    easy way to get around and see sights

    We were welcomed aboard with our pup and the taxi runs on time. recommend for getting around if you stay outside of Charleston proper or even for an affordable round trip tour

    Very convenient and nice way to get on water

    Great way to get between Mount Pleasant and downtown Charleston without taking the car and trying to park. Took the puppy with us and she loved the ride. We saw dolphins near the shore line from the boat.

    The crew loves dogs

    My husband and I brought our havanese Oliver with his rolling carrier. We were treated great and Oliver loved watching the dolphins. $12.00 per person for all day riding - pets free!

    Ramses loved it!

    Great way to see some of Charleston with your pup! Great crew, captain stopped to show us some dolphins. RT takes an hour. Paid by cc when we got on the boat.

    Absolutely dog friendly!

    What a great way to see Charleston with your furry friend. It was $12 for an all-day pass and our pup was free! Our 50lb fur-baby was welcomed aboard and treated like family.

    Don't miss out!

    Probably one of our favorite parts of our trip! $10 per person for all day pass in the bay area with 4 stops (Waterfront Park, Maritime Center, Patriots Point, Charleston Harbor Resort) and you can get on/off or just stay on the taxi and enjoy the ride/views. It runs by each location hourly and is only available on Saturdays in the off season. We parked, paid for our tickets, and got on at the Maritime Center (we saw people paying for their tickets on the taxi as well). The Waterfront Park/Market St stop is a great place to get out with your pup and walk around. It is along the water and has a lot of grassy areas. Just hop back on the taxi when you want to head somewhere else.

    It was a beautiful day and being out on the water felt wonderful! We spotted dolphins at least once between each stop. They were everywhere! Our pup was very well-behaved and was clearly happy to be on the adventure with us!

    MUCH easier than driving in!

    So easy and cheap. Don't trouble yourself with driving in and finding parking if you're in Mt Pleasant take this taxi. Free parking!
