Twelve bucks doesn’t get you much these days — that is, unless you’re looking for a fun and exciting mode of transportation in and around Charleston’s waterways. Departing hourly from four different locations, including Waterfront Park, the Maritime Center, Patriots Point – home of the USS Yorktown – and the Charleston Harbor Resort, The Charleston Water Taxi is as convenient as it is enjoyable. Passengers may even spot a few dolphins in transit, making the Water Taxi a casual yet scenic escape that equals fun for the whole family.
A terrific way to see Charleston from the water, a ride in the Water Taxi certainly beats sitting in traffic to reach areas of interest around town. Passengers are encouraged to hop on and hop off the Water Taxi and take as long as they wish to tour any of the local attractions on the route. The Taxi runs every hour, therefore passengers can easily catch any of the hourly rides back to their desired destination.
Those participating or supporting runners in the Cooper River Bridge Run on Sept. 25 also have the option of enjoying the Charleston Water Taxi to and from the race. The crew of Charleston Water Taxi makes it possible for participants to experience the local event and celebrate sportsmanship by relaxing and enjoying views of the Ravenel Bridge, admiring the local waterways and feeling the energy of race day.
Rain or shine, unless weather conditions make it unsafe to be on the water, the Charleston Water Taxi runs without fail and offers both covered seating and sun-bathed benches. Passengers young and seasoned will always find a comfortable spot from which to enjoy Charleston’s beauty and breezes.
