The cruise lasted about 1 1/2 hours and was narrated by a licensed Charleston guide. Very informative and saw a lot. We purchased the harbor cruise as a combination ticket with a carriage tour by Old South Carriage. Saved about $5. You have 3 days after your carriage ride to take the harbor cruise.

We did the Charleston Harbor Dinner Cruise and were very unimpressed. The food was mediocre, the service was extremely slow and the noise level in the dining area was so loud you could not carry on a conversation. The best part of the evening were the views of the harbor. IMHO, if you want to see the harbor, do a harbor cruise without the dinner and go to one of the many wonderful restaurants downtown.

Loved the Dinner, I had the Shrimp & Grits which was awesome. I also tasted the Pork chop Dinner. But the cruise was lacking in excitement, no real entertainment. There was music playing lightly, but because the dinner came in stages, it needed a little something to keep things going.

We had a great time on the harbor tour. Got to see a lot of sites from the water and it was nice way to relax in the afternoon. Price of water and snacks was pretty high as u would expect so I suggest you bring your own. Also I suggest sitting on top as the inside second floor smells terrible.

This is a review of Spiritline Cruises not Fort Sumter. We wanted to do the early tour so were a little rushed to make the boat. Once we walked there it was hard to figure out where to buy the tickets. Followed a sign with an arrow and ended up walking out of the way (sign was wrong). Did not have time to look at the info in the building before hand. The boat was standard for these type of trips (Ellis Island, Alcatraz, etc.). The speakers were plenty loud and I had no problem hearing the info. One hour was not long enough to see grounds and the museum. Felt rushed and didn't get to read everything like I wanted to.

Thank you for your input on the Fort Sumter tour. We are very sorry that you had difficulty in finding our ticket window located at the Fort Sumter Visitor Education Center. The National Park Service has determined the times and duration of our trips to Fort Sumter. There is an extended stay option available for those who prefer a longer visit at the Fort. Again, your feedback is valuable. Please contact me directly if I may be of any assistance.
