Now that the flowers are blooming (and there is obnoxious amounts of pollen), the temperatures are rising, and the little critters of the Lowcountry are coming out of hibernation, we’ve started our Charleston harbor cruises up again on a daily basis! So whether you’re looking for a great excuse to get outside and on the water, interested in learning more about Charleston history, or simply wish to soak in the calm breezes and beautiful sights of Charleston harbor, Charleston Harbor Tours and Schooner Pride sailing tours are the perfect way to explore a unique side of Charleston.
We started up our historic harbor tours a few weeks ago, which are now running DAILY at 9:30am, 11:30am, 1:30pm, and 3:30pm. During these 90-minute historical harbor tours, you’ll hop aboard the Carolina Belle for an enriching and entertaining history lesson on Charleston. During this Charleston harbor cruise, the captain will introduce you to some of Charleston’s most fascinating and well-known attractions on the water, including the USS Yorktown, St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, the Charleston Battery, the Ravenel Bridge, Fort Sumter, and so much more. And passengers almost always see dolphins and pelicans! In fact, there was even a rare sighting of pink dolphin. Click here to see for yourself . . .

In addition to hosting 90-minute historic harbor tours, The Carolina Belle also hosts our famous Blues & BBQ Sunset Cruises every Thursday! The first Blues & BBQ Cruise of the season is on April 18, but it has already sold out, so make sure to get your tickets in advance for the upcoming ones! During this specialty cruise, you’ll enjoy a tasty barbecue buffet from the nationally acclaimed Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ, live blues music, and a two-hour cruise through Charleston harbor! There is also a cash bar stocked with cocktails, beer, and wine.

We’ve also launched a BRAND NEW combination tour, which is a Charleston Harbor Tour + Charleston Ghost Tour combination package! We’ve partnered with Charleston’s leading ghost tour provided, Bulldog Tours, to create this exceptional combination tour that allows guests to embark on a 90-minute historic harbor cruise with us and a ghost tour with Bulldog Tours for one low price.

We also just took The Schooner Pride out of the shipyard where it was resting for the winter months! We are now offering our afternoon dolphin sails and sunset sails aboard The Schooner Pride on a daily basis.
Both sails are two-hours long and are a relaxing way to tour the Charleston harbor and provide a fantastic opportunity to see dolphin and pelicans! Drinks and snacks can be purchased on board each of our Charleston sailing tours.
