Meet your guide at the Charleston Maritime Center in downtown Charleston 30 minutes prior to departure, and check in at the blue and white ticket booth onsite.

This is not a narrated tour, but the captain and first mate will be available throughout the sail to answer questions and point out local landmarks.
Cruise under the iconic span of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge as navigate along the scenic harbor, and enjoy an mellow playlist of music.

Very hot day in Charleston was replaced with a cooling boat ride around Charleston Harbor. Relaxing, informative, and simply a beautiful couple of hours in the evening on the water.

It was great relaxing cruise of the harbor, the two fort sites and the amazing old historical houses on the waterfront/seawall. While the weather didn't cooperate for the sunset, the cruise was well worth the time and money.

This was a great time!!! The view of the sky was really awesome. You might see dolphins - we saw over a dozen. Captain Mike if a first class master of the seas.
If you want to do something that you will remember for years to come - take this sunset cruise.

Both the captain and the first mate were top notch from start to finish. It was a very relaxing 2 hours and passed very quickly. We didn't expect historical information but that was included as well. Yellow and pink sunsets were beautiful!
