We took the harbor tour only, not the Fort Sumter. It goes out of the harbor toward Ft Sumter providing good views and comes back under and around the Ravenel Bridge. The skipper is GREAT, no recording, excellent descriptions and knowledgeable and ENTERtainig! Great guy!

Our guide is a history teacher and what he shared about the history of Charleston during our cruise was amazing. It was so much more than just a boat ride in the harbor. Highly recommend!

We had a great time on the harbor tour. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. The sights were amazing. It was nice looking at Charleston from a view of the water. Highly recommend.

I know the weather makes a huge difference, but I had a very enjoyable cruise around the harbor, with good music by Shrimp City Slim and his band, and a pleasant group of people on the boat. The food by Fiery Ron's BBQ was very good, plentiful, and served by folks who cared about what they were serving. It was relaxing, offered photo ops, and ended a little after sunset. It's a great way to spend a couple of hours, and have dinner too. Ice tea comes with the meal, and other beverages are available for purchase.

We enjoyed our afternoon tour despite being on board with approximately 100 children from a local summer program. They did an excellent job of highlighting Charleston history, pointing out points of interest, talking about local wildlife and answering questions. My only complaint was a passenger "Debbie" who was loud and annoying. That was NOT the fault of the tour company. Overall, a good choice in entertainment for anyone.
