Below are just a few of the testimonials we’ve received from passengers who have participated in our Charleston harbor tours:
“We were vacationing in Charleston for a few days and after walking the city we decided that we should take the harbor and carriage combo tour so we could learn about all of the beautiful things that we had already seen, and we are so very glad that we did! The harbor tour was amazing due to our captain being very informative, funny, and charming. We arrived early and got to sit in the front row and had the best views of everything, including the dolphins that traveled with us! . . . I would highly suggest this tours to anyone vacationing here as it is extremely informative and helps you truly form a connection with the whole area! It is worth the money, especially when combined with the carriage tour.” – Passenger from Kentucky
“This is a very relaxing way to see a different perspective of the city, hear some history, and see Fort Sumter up close without committing as much time as an actual trip to the fort. There is a snack bar on the boat to help you recharge if you didn’t find the time to stop for lunch or drinks before getting on the boat. Staff was friendly and efficient. We had a sunny, comfortable day and not much of a crowd which made our trip particularly relaxing and enjoyable. The 3:30 tour was a perfect way to end a full day of walking and wind down before dinner.” – Passenger from Albany, NY
