My boyfriend and I went on the Ghost cruise this past Saturday night. Very good story teller. Breezy night. Some music at the end of the ride. Offered water, soft drinks and some alcohol for sale during the tour. Maybe slightly overpriced but we still enjoyed it.

The tour was nice, very informative, the narrator was super with the knowledge he shared about the landmarks that were pointed out. Crew was great and boat was clean. Wish the narrator had shared more.

Nothing like seeing the Charleston Harbor at night from the water. Way better than a walking tour - no mosquitos! I'm a local and I took a guest visiting Charleston on this tour - he loved it! I will recommend again. Ed Macy is a fantastic storyteller! He has decent bartending skills as well....

This was the best event of our Charleston trip by far! We went on the eco tour, pulled up a crab pot, the boat was beached right up on the sand on Morris Island and we searched for shells. The tour was friendly and very well narrated, and really involved the guests. Not only did we learn about the eco... More

The boat was very nice and staff was friendly We took a nature cruise to Morris Island. This was the second trip out for me in a week, but the first was using a different charter. This groups Naturalist (Marine Biologist) was more knowledgeable, however the tide either wasn't cooperating or the trip was timed inconveniently. There was minimal beach,... More

We did yhe haunted tour. The staff is wonderful and friendly. The boat was comfortable and a size that isn't too large but not too small. We really enjoyed the ghost and pirate stories and the history that went with it. Highly recommend this small business.

July 15, 2016 Hubby and me enjoyed a very peaceful evening out with the crew of the Sandlapper. All together there were about 12 people on the cruise which made for a more comfortable experience being it was not crowded. Lee was awesome in pointing out points of interest. We have been on harbor tours before but this one was... More

We did the sunset cruise. It was so beutiful and relaxing. Wonderful addition to any trip. Great for kiddos too - they let the kids stand with the captain and learn about driving the boat.

My family went on a sunset cruise. It was very nice -- relaxing, with good music (not too loud). Enjoyable for kids and adults. Just enough narration -- not too much.
