We very much enjoyed our tour. The staff in the office and on the craft were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. The modest fee was an excellent value. We'd recommend this for anyone.

90 minute cruise around the Harbor with the captain narrating for most of the trip. With the exception of seeing Ft. Sumter it was a pretty boring ride.

The cruise was excellent,very informative. We went in October and very glad we brought our heavier jackets. If you go, make sure you are in the front of the boat on the top deck, since most of our ride we had 3 dolphins that swam and jumped 10 feet in front if the boat. The captain explained it was similar to our body surfing, they use 60 percent less energy, and they were having a blast! We did too! We took the combo tour: boat cruise (90 min) and palmetto carriage tour ( 60 min horse drawn carriage tour of downtown) good value :-)

The Tour Is $20. But There Are $2 Coupons And Discounts For Seniors. FREE parking Where You Board The Boat. Capt. Dave Was Very Informative And Entertaining. It Was Quite Chilly, But Not Too Bad With A Hat And Jacket. You Could Sit Below In The Heat...Lots Of Seats And Windows To See All The Sights. TIP: Sit In The Front (Up Top)...More Wind But You Get To See The Dolphins Swimming And Jumping In Front Of The Bow Of The Boat. We Had A Great Time!
