We invited all wedding guests to our son and (now) daughter-in-law's wedding Rehearsal Dinner aboard the Spirit of the Low Country. There were nearly 150 on board that evening. Of course we can't credit SpiritLine staff for the exceptional weather that evening (April 30), but it couldn't have been lovelier with an amazing sunset to boot! We were so satisfied... More

Loved the Harbor Tour with a great narrator who used to be an AP US history teacher. He made reliving Charleston's history a lot of fun. On a very hot day, it was best to be out on the water. Tickets were $16 at the Visitor Center. Have fun!

Very nice cruise to and from Ft. Sumter with a couple of dolphins thrown in for extras. Sailed at noon and was back at Liberty Square area around 2:15. The time at the Fort is a bit hurried but sufficient. We really enjoyed our reintroduction to the history of this important site. The boat appeared to be well run and... More

We did this 90 minute tour and found out a lot about Charleston's history, our own war for one nation, and the newness of Charleston. We listen to very informative guide and learn much. We saw dolphins and other shipping. It was very informative and fun. Do bring a warm coat if you come on the swing months of March,... More

The speaker was intelligent, interesting and funny. I would do it again. We saw some dolphins and typical seabirds for the region.

We enjoyed the dinner, cruise and professional wait staff. The dinner selection was well prepared (catch of the day) and moderate proportions. They provided live music provided by a guitar player - found it to be way to loud and soon became a constant noise and interruption to normal table chat.

We took this tour of Charleston Harbour and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide, Stephen, gave a superbly lucid narrative covering a great deal of the history of the area, laced with amusing anecdotes and comments. There is a lot to see and learn about the area and this is a very interesting way of doing it. One of the best... More

Some harbor tours are just that, a tour of the harbor. This line lets you get off at Ft. Sumter and go on a tour there. You have plenty of time to roam around on your own as well. museum is very interesting. Boat ride was lovely with some explanations of what we were seeing along the way. Recommend!

My husband and I took the 2:30 tour to Ft Sumter and had a wonderful time! I loved hearing the history of the different Forts as we went through the harbor and the museum type exhibits before you leave and on the island are both very interesting. We saw 10-12 dolphin in the harbor and got a great view of... More
