It was a beautiful calm night and the city was beautiful all lit up. I liked the ghost stories but couldn’t hear well from front deck. Would recommend sitting inside if you want to hear.

What a lovely evening on the water. Our Captain was very professional and safe and our tour guide was hilarious. We loved the tales told with some humor intertwined. I highly recommend it, and, I look forward to taking the nature cruise next.

Remember when you would gather around the campfire as a kid and hear ghost stories? Well replace the campfire with a catamaran and the woods with the Charleston Bay and that’s the experience you get here. Lee was an awesome tour guide and story teller...More

We did the haunted ghost tour. It was such a fun and informative experience. What a different way to tour the harbor. Our guide was so funny and we heard some great ghost stories. A fun way to learn about the Charleston area.
