Great way to get to and from downtown and avoid the hetic driving and expensive parking of the area. And it satisfied my urge to have a boat ride. Went passed the Yorktown and under the bridge and watched a Carnival cruise ship head out. The staff was helpful and gave us a map of downtown.

We stay edit the holiday inn and parked the car free at the dock. We had a groupon so for $5we were able to see downtown charleston and not have to,pay the high cost of parking.

Very punctual, courteous staff, saw a few dolphins in the harbor. We found the trip a refreshing way to cool off after hiking around Charleston. Also decided, after taking the first round trip on Saturday and coming right up close to the USS Yorktown, the Destroyer and USS Clamagore, to come back the next day to do that tour! Had a nice lunch at the Charleston Fish House on that side of the harbor too, brand new restaurant with a gorgeous view. Wonderful way to spend the day!

The captain and first mate were so friendly and helpful to our family! This was one of the highlights of our trip for my 7 year old. He loved cruising the harbor! Great staff!
