We did the thriller boat two separate times, Two different years, both times the boat was full and the captain and wife were really great. Lots of good information on the tour. Recommended to wear sunglasses and also have a zip lock baggie for your personal items you don't want wet. Depending on the wind you can and will get... More

We had to coordinate several days of activities for a family of 6 and sometimes it's hard to please everyone...well this did it! It mixed fun & excitement with historical facts & sights in a way that's incomparable to other tours available in Charleston. Our guide, Barbara, and Captian Tripp were absolutely wonderful! We did get a little wet once... More

We have been waiting to get on this boat for a long time and finally it all worked out. Well IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT! The captain and Barbara the owner are so personable and know their stuff. The boat glides over the water at high speeds, the music is so well coordinated and they know how to finds the... More

Rode the thriller with friends on 10/12/13 and had an exciting ride combined with an excellent tour. We got close-up views of the Morris Island lighthouse, Fort Sumter and the Ravenel Bridge that are not available anywhere else. Great ride and I suggest you bring your camera as you'll get photos from very unique points of view and with big... More

We were in Charleston on a Sunday and it was SO hot we decided not to walk around. We needed something to do while it was so hot. We added this last minute and I'm so glad we did! I called and the lady was super friendly and gave me very easy to follow driving directions to get from downtown... More

We had a such a blast on this ride. We couldn't have asked for anything better. The commentary that was included was quite interesting. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. It was a great family ride.

While in Charleston I had SO many issues with their transit system. Being that I was on vacation and that I did not drive, I depended highly on their public transit. I figured, as long as I follow the schedule posted online, I should be able to get around Charleston okay. WRONG! The schedules are never followed! I waited 1.5... More

My family and I took the hour boat ride Labor Day weekend, I still smile when I think of it. The staff were amazing. The high speed big yellow boat was very cool looking and comfortable. The loud rock music and the "donuts" in the water the Captain did were the most fun. I also liked how they stopped and... More
