  • Our rides included a bachelorette party of 8. Coordination and timing of the taxi couldn’t have been better, and Scott was helpful, welcoming and friendly!  more »
  • I loved this boat ride. The staff was very nice too. We actually just ended up staying on the boat and did not get off. I recommend this company  more »
  • The captain and staff were friendly and professional. We had a great time on the sea and felt safe and relaxed. The all day pass was an awesome price. Definitely taking the Water Taxis next time we visit Charleston.
  • This was awesome. Took the water taxi over to see the historic USS Yorktown and submarine. It truly was a fantastic experience. Beautiful and smooth ride over, not choppy at all. We explored the other side of the shore and came back on the return. There is parking structure just around the corner from boarding, and is located at the end of Market Street. The staff were fantastic, and very knowledgeable about the area and ensured the ride was fun and entertaining by making time for people to photograph and see the dolphins. A must do if in Charleston.
