My family and I booked this tour last minute while on a college tour trip. When the time came to go, we were nervous about some passing weather. Donna, the first mate, came out to us in the parking lot to calm us and made us feel so much better! She and Captain Jerry made the trip so fun and... More

I wouldn't call it a tour. There wasn't much talking, but the views were great. They had a very small bar with what looked like left over grapes, and cheese from the previous tour. My only issue was the server didn't have anywhere to wash her hands, but she was pulling in the boat, playing in her hair, and putting... More

We had a very nice time at the 8pm "Haunted Harbor" ghost tour. The boat left on time, the staff were friendly and fun. Donna had good ghost stories, folk lore, and history and backed them up with photos on an iPad that she would come around after each story and show us. It's not as creepy as doing the... More

We went on the 2 hour sunset cruise. Captain Mike was great to answer all our questions. We were offered some light snacks and could purchase drinks. Well worth it!

On the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend 2015 my husband, myself and our out of town guests went on the Charleston Harbor Sunset Cruise. It was a beautiful evening. The tour takes you under the Ravenel Bridge to the Mt. Pleasant Memorial Park Fishing Pier all the way to the edge of Sullivan's Island. Along the way you can see... More

We could not have been more pleased with our experience with Sandlapper Tours. Captain Bryan was friendly and accommodating -- and extremely knowledgeable about the area. During our cruise of Charleston Harbor he shared with us historical knowledge about the homes and sites as we cruised by, stopped a few times for us to take a swim, and cranked the... More

This is a wonderful tour with historical information and storytelling by their knowledgeable tour guide, Donna. She made it a point to interact with every guest. We plan on taking our children on this tour, plus another one offered by Sandlapper. You won't be disappointed!

Great tour, great stories. This is not a typical ghost tour where they take you up to a particular place, instead you tour the harbor and the guide points out buildings that you can see and tells ghost stories about that particular place. Boat captain was very professional and the tour guide was excellent. She was a great story teller... More

Went on nature tour. It was awesome. Not only did the tour last 3 hrs they let us walk around one of the islands for 30 minutes. Seen lots of dolphins some 5 ft from boat. We highly recommend this company for your tours. Also do ghost tour. The guides are knowledgable and the entire staff are very friendly
