Read More

The South Carolina Aquarium, Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum, and the Charleston Water Taxi announced a new, joint promotion: the Charleston Waterfront Pass. For the first time, the three organizations have partnered to create a special pass that is perfect for families and visitors who want to see two of the top Charleston-area attractions and enjoy a boat ride across the harbor.

Passholders can choose to begin their waterfront adventure at either the South Carolina Aquarium or Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum and then take in breathtaking views of the Charleston Harbor while riding the Charleston Water Taxi to the remaining attraction. Visitors may show each attraction’s ticket staff their pass, and it will be redeemed for one standard admission ticket. Visits to each attraction are not required to take place on the same day, but must be used before the expiration date noted on the pass.

The Charleston Waterfront Pass is available exclusively through the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and can be purchased at its four staffed visitor centers:

? Downtown Charleston at 375 Meeting St.

? Kiawah Island at 4475 Betsy Kerrison Pkwy.

? Mount Pleasant at 99 Harry M. Hallman, Jr. Blvd.

? North Charleston at 4975-B Centre Pointe Dr.

The combined price of the pass allows visitors to save nearly $15 off the price of visiting each participating attraction on its own. Pricing is as follows:

? Adults (ages 13+): $52.95

? Children (ages 6-12): $38.95

? Children (ages 3-5): $26.95
