We took them for they are the only providers of Transportation to Ft Sumter. The tour was narrated as we took the 45 minuets to get there. The boat had a concession stand. The boat overall was safe, but the interior was a little run down. Could use some updates.

This is the second year that Spirit Line has put on this event. The weather was perfect for the cruise, the appetizers were good and it was a nice trip out. When we got to the fort there were only three people in period attire. Antoine was amazing, the other soldier was good and the woman was hidden so no... More

I did not take the original Harbor Cruise, instead I went on the Holy City Bluegrass Cruise. It is a special event that began on Thursdays starting Sept 11 and runs through Oct 23, 2014. This Bluegrass cruise was a great way to spend an evening in Charleston. Parking was easy at the Aquarium parking garage, costing $6.00 at the... More

If you are thinking of a specialty cruise from Spirit Line Cruise of Charleston DON'T DO IT !! The food was terrible. They ran out of most of what there was before everyone had a chance to be served. My wife only had a dry biscuit wth a little piece of ham on it!! Many of the rest didn't do... More

The General Beauregard was a comfortable way to get an overview of Charleston Harbor. Good value for the money. Easily booked and reserved online. Tour guide was knowledgeable although very dry and monotone in his projection. For the money, a nice 90 minute ride, if you like boats.

One of the nicest ways to see Charleston harbor and get some history thrown in , is to take this cruise . I don't remember the tour guides name but he provided a wealth of history about Mt Pleasant and Charleston while we took this cruise. He answered all our questions while giving a great tour . I would highly... More

Might as we'll be a boat ride... Way overrated and the tour guide did not stay quite for a minute... Way too annoying. Good photo opportunity

We are visitors from Australia and took a Spiritline harbour tour yesterday morning. The guide was brilliant with an amazing historical knowledge and provided extremely interesting historical information on Charleston life and history. The harbour was spectacular and the sea breeze made for a very pleasant trip. Well done Spiritline.

We had several folks from our company come in for a global conference. We had 20 people total and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the cruise around the harbor. The food was excellent, even catered to the couple of vegetarians we had with us. One gentlemen was from India and had never been to the USA. The smile on his face was... More

I took the boat ride to Fort Sumpter. The boat ride was very enjoyable. Although, guy running the gift shop at Fort Sumpter was not very nice.
