What People Are Saying About Charleston Tours & Events

Amazing experience! Peaceful ride through the harbor. Great crew showing you anything you want to know about the boat. Super amazing at sun set. Seeing the Charleston sky line and why it is known for being the holy city. Lots of dolphin sightings as well.
– Ashlyn R

Stunning sailing vessel with an interesting crew and excellent female Captain. The sail was relaxing and beautiful. The views of Charleston were stunning. The bridges, the beautiful homes in the distance all made for a delightful trip. We came across 3 dolphins during our sail. Recommend this tour for anyone wanting to relax and enjoy a slow pace.
– E Schwartz

Our guide Mark was very knowledgeable and helpful. We took the combo bus and boat tour. Very informative and we learned a lot about the city and the surrounding area. I would recommend these tours to anyone visiting Charleston.
– Stanley T

We took a Blues and BBQ cruise. You can’t beat the views of the harbor and sunset on the water. The BBQ was a perfect example of Lowcountry cuisine: pulled pork, grits, potatoes, roasted chicken, coleslaw, buns and cookies, tea.
