Thriller Charleston - High Speed Tour Boat
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Thriller is rocking the boat with a 1 hour and approximately 30 mile tour. See the sites of Charleston along with 5 forts and 2 lighthouses while on your way to an up close view of Morris Island Lighthouse. Live narration and rock tunes on a 43-passenger hi-speed power catamaran will surely put a smile on your face.

This tour of Charleston by sea was truly thrilling! We got a different perspective on the sights of Charleston and enough historical narration to make it informative but not long and boring. Getting there and back was a fantastic speed boat ride over the waves and under the bridge! The tour guide and captain were great - friendly and entertaining. And, we got to rock out to some great tunes along the way! Be prepared to get wet! There wasn't a dry seat on the boat!

We booked day before based on weather concerns this weekend. The boat was supposed to go at 1:30 but the Capt. Held a bit to let a storm blow over. The music rocked, our group was into the spirit and off we went. We had a quick tour of the forts, the battery, short revolutionary/ War Between the States history facts ( first naval battle in Revolutionary war and shots in the CIvil war were in Charleston!), cruised under the Cooper bridge and then outside the barrier to the sea. With the wind and choppy seas, Thriller got everyone wet but those of us in the back were taking the brunt. One hat was lost, another saved. TAKE the BaGs for your electronics! To stay dry, sit in the front two rows. AWESOME!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this tour. This is the second time we have went on the tour and each time it gets better. This is a good time with some SC history thrown in. A must do if you are in Charleston.

This is awesome for all ages. We recently went with my 13 yr old nephew. We all loved it. I am a local and love to be a tourist in my own town. The boat was fast and thrilling. The waves were really huge and the boat and captain did a great job. You will get wet, so be prepared wearing swimsuit or clothes that you don't mind getting wet. Have some towels in your car afterwards.
