This is great way to see Charleston Harbor from the sea. 1.5 hours of ocean is always a great way to spend the morning.

The Fort Sumter tour was my favorite activity in Charleston. During the 20 minute boat ride to the island, you are given a lot of information about the area. You have about an hour at the fort and museum. I am so glad I was able to visit the fort. The museum really brings it to life. I recommend the 9:30 a.m. tour during the summer because of the heat, but there are also tours at noon and 2:30.

We had a pleasant harbor cruise. The boat had comfortable seats with good viewing. The only problem that occurred was the sound equipment was poor and we were not able to hear the guide very well. We missed out on much of the information he presented.

We took the trip out to Fort Sumter with SpiritLine and enjoyed our trip. They gave a informational tour on the way out to the Fort. Wish they had be open for the dinner cruise during our stay but maybe next time. We really enjoyed ourselves.

The boat is in great condition and it was a very nice cruise to Ft. Sumter. The volunteer who gave information on the fort and Charleston area was very personable and knowledgable. It is a great way to take photos of the USS Yorktown from a different vantage point if you leave from Patriot's Point. We were traveling as a family so the only thing I would have liked to have seen was some slight discount. We could get slight discounts on other tickets at the visitor's center but there were no discounts for this cruise found anywhere. But all in all the only way to get to the fort.

Thank you so much for your very nice review. I will also pass along your comments to the National Park Service. Regarding the view of the Yorktown from our boat, someone recently posted a fantastic pic of just that on our Facebook page!

We hope you found the tour worth the price of admission. We do offer Group, Senior and Combo Tour discounts. Feel free to contact us directly in the future regarding specials or discounts on any of our tours and check with your hotel Front Desk Associate or Concierge Desk for specials also.
