This was a great outing for families! You haven't seen Charleston unless you've seen it from the water. Wonderful sail, attentive crew and a special family afternoon. Thank you!

A fantastic surprise gift from our son and his friends to celebrate our 45th anniversary. We sailed up under the Arthur Ravenel Bridge then back around Charleston Harbor and the clouds parted and we had a spectacular sunset. It couldn't have been any better. Recommend...More

We had a beautiful evening cruise in late July. The crew is knowledgeable and friendly. Many of the views you won't get anyplace else. We even saw some dolphins! I love to be out on the water under sail. This 2hr cruise did not disappoint!

We had a great 2 hour cruise with a beautiful sunset. The Captain and 2 mates were great and provided a great evening. They provided blankets once the sun went down and it cooled off.

Staff were very polite and answered all of our questions. You are able to bring snacks on board and they serve drinks. The ride was calm and very relaxing. We enjoyed it.

As far as I know, they will still sail if there is rain. If there is bad weather, like lightning or bad storms, they will give you a credit for another sail at a other time.

Hi, thanks for the question. Each cruise is 2 hours. The time depends on the time of year.

One of the if not THE worst things I've ever spent money on. Absolutely pathetic. The "story teller" made things up and for stories from other people telling her such. The ad for the ghost tour cruise is so misleading.
