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

We had a wonderful experience! We saw soooo many dolphins. We really enjoyed being able to walk to the different levels of the boat to see at different angles. My kids are 12 and 14. They were not that enthused by the narration....but in their defense the sound was a bit muffled. :) the information I heard was good but... More

The boat ride to fort Sumter was okay, bit you could feel the boat rocking back and forth. We only had one hour to explore the fort. Inside the fort was amazing. Too bad we only had one hour to explore the fort. On the way back it was okay. The program that spoke to us the while time was... More

The guide for this harbor tour was a Charleston native and knew all the information and provided lots of color and background to the stories. She even provided us with a book to look at that helped us understand and see what she meant. We road on the Beaureguard vessel. The crew was pleasant but the tour guide made the... More

My wife and family took the Fort Sumter cruise. It was beautiful, and we enjoyed the ride. Fort Sumter is the location of the first shots fired in the Civil War!

Went on the New Years Eve cruise. Food sucked but the band rocked. Also seemed that once midnight hit they could not get rid of us fast enough.
