I looked at several different options for a sunset cruise in Charleston, SC and I'm SO glad I picked this one! The boat itself it on the smaller side when you think of 'tourist cruises'...but that was actually a positive thing! The Captain ans his Mate were very friendly; eager to help people capture the perfect sunset picture. The boat... More

We have been on several boat tours of Charleston Harbor. This one stood out as one of the best. The boat is lower to the water and you are therefore closer and get a better view. Plus it can get in very close to the Battery and other areas because it has a shallower draft. But the highlight was the... More

My husband and I took the evening sunset cruise for my birthday. We live here in Charleston and we must say seeing it from the water was a very unique experience. Captain Rocky and Ms Donna were very knowledgeable about the history of the city. What an amazing sunset and we got to see some dolphins as well. We would... More

My family went on the nature tour. We were able to see a few dolphins. Thus was the highlight of tour. The crab pot was stuck on something in the water and was unable to be pulled up so no crabs......Morris island is not that secluded. When we pulled up there were like five other boats there. We didn't find... More

Sorry. You did not enjoy the tour. Morris Island is a public Island owned by the City of Charleston. Anybody that has a boat is welcome to go out there anytime they want. We have no control over who goes there. People are welcome to come and go, if they have thier own boat. Consider yourself lucky that you got... More

It was such a beautiful night, very laid back sunset tour with Captain Mike and Donna. They were both very gracious and very informed on the history and sights of Charleston. We were blessed with a respite from the storm which made for some amazing cloud combinations. A great sunset cruise, highly recommend it!

We went on the evening ghost tour of the harbor and it ended up being a trip highlight. The boat is comfortable and serves sodas, wine, and snacks, which we indulged in. We were on the tour for sunset, which was stunning. They take you around the harbor and under the beautiful bridge (the picture was taken from the boat... More

My husband and I went for the 11am tour on 7/23. Everyone we encountered was super courteous, friendly, and very informative about Charleston, SC. Our tour guide and captain were very entertaining with interesting stories about points in Charleston's history. We only had a few hours in Charleston and this was a great intro to it; it helped us narrow... More

We took the nature tour. My husband and I both very much enjoyed ourselves. We were able to see dolphins, (if you want pictures of them you must be very quick!) Pelicans and blue crab. We loved stopping at Morris Island to look for shells. Everyone goes in the own direction and is very peaceful. We even saw a horseshoe... More

Our captain was friendly and full of tidbits about the area. It was a fun and relaxing evening. He was very flexible and asked us where we wanted to go to. Overall a great experience. Bring a towel though, the seats get very wet.
