Want to explore historic downtown Charleston for the day? Our resort offers two convenient ways for you to get there. Catch the Charleston Water Taxi from our marina for a relaxing trip across the harbor to Waterfront Park and Aquarium Wharf stops. You may even see a dolphin or two along the way! The water taxi leaves from our marina daily from 9:00 am – 7:00 pm from March 17th - November 1st and on Saturdays from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm November 5th - March 17th. The cost is $8.00 one way or $12.00 for an all-day pass. Children ages 3 and under are free.
Option number two for getting downtown is our hotel shuttle which picks up and drops off in front of Key West Hats on North Market Street. The shuttle runs year-round seven days a week: please check the shuttle schedule located at the Front Desk for times. The shuttle also makes trips to Sullivan's Island that leave the hotel between 8:45 am and 1:00 pm, as well as to seasonal activities and local points of interest throughout different times of the year.
