My husband and I enjoyed the sunset cruise on a beautiful warm evening. The cruise was two hours in the Charleston harbor. We sailed under the Ravenel Bridge, past the Yorktown, out as far as Ft. Sumter and then up the Ashley River to the bridges and back to the marina. This not a fully narrated trip although some of... More

My wife and I were in Charleston for our anniversary and decided to take the Ghost Tour and Cruise of Charleston Harbor tour because we have previously done ghost tours by carriage and wanted a change of pace. We really did this tour for the opportunity to see the harbor at night and enjoy being on the water. The view... More

My husband and I took our two grandchildren, ages 8 & 9 on this tour. It was wonderful. The staff was great and the naturalist was very informative. There were not too many other guests on the boat, (15ish) so it made a nice size for personal interaction with the crew and naturalist. Would definitely recommend.

The cruise was perfect! The weather was beautiful and it was so relaxing. The guide and driver Brian were both very friendly/fun and the little bit of background history you get on the area is great. We loved it! Unfortunately no dolphin sightings :(

I purchased the sunset cruise on Groupon and took my husband along for the cruise. We were very impressed with the boat, the crew and the informative first mate. Although this was not a fully narrative cruise, the first mate was very knowledgeable about the area and pointed out interesting facts. I highly recommend this company.

This was a nice, pretty cruise around the Charleston Harbor at night. The tour guide shared a lot of the history of the city, but if you were looking for ghosts, this is not the tour for you!!

Harbor tour was relaxing. The guide and captain were both courteous and informative. Best to stay with the guide if you go to Morris Island for a better time although you can go where you want. If you want to see Dolphins, don't go during shrimping season b/c the Dolphins usually follow the shrimp boats for a free meal. We... More

We went on the ghost tour at sunset. Charleston is beautiful from the water at sunset. The guide was knowledgeable and backed up the stories with photographs. We were fortunate to see lightning from a distance, which was spectacular from our vantage point. We were able to get wonderful photographs. We are taking another tour this evening called the Sunset... More

We celebrated our grand daughter's sixth birthday by organizing her birthday celebration around the Sandlapper two-hour Nature Tour. It was a fantastic experience. We had 14 kids and 10 adults. The pontoon-style boat easily accommodated the group. There is a small bathroom on the boat. Murray (the Boat Captain) and Riley (a college student majoring in Marine Biology) hosted the... More

We took the Ghost Tour on a beautiful evening in Charleston. A lady told the ghost stories and showed pictures taken in and around various locations in Charleston. The tour left the Maritime Center about 9 and took us to the Battery pointing out houses, etc. where ghostly events had taken place. They serve drinks on the boat including wine... More
