Our captain was friendly and full of tidbits about the area. It was a fun and relaxing evening. He was very flexible and asked us where we wanted to go to. Overall a great experience. Bring a towel though, the seats get very wet.

We took their ECO tour this weekend and it was terrific! The guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. We saw a few dolphins andp crabs, looked for seashells on the island, and enjoyed a relaxing rode on the boat. We would definitely do this again!

Our family of 21 people ranging in age from 4-76 took a sunset dinner cruise on the Palmetto last week. Captain Brian was 100% professional and super friendly from our very first conversation. I called the company to ask about a tour, and within hours Brian had called me back and then followed up with an email. He made the booking and execution of the evening stress and hassle-free.

Two days before the event he called me to confirm details, make sure that we knew where to go, etc. The level of professionalism was a notch above what you would expect from a group of laid-back boat folks. These people are on their game!

We easily boarded the Palmetto and headed off into the Charleston Harbor. The crew of Brian, Jerry & Gervais made our whole experience feel fun and safe. The water was very choppy that night due to high winds, but we never felt unsafe at any time. The wind made dinner a challenge on the little island we beached the boat on, but the weather was a fluke - not the norm. They prepared a yummy Lowcountry Boil, and had the food and beach chairs set up for us in no time. The kids got to run around on the beach, and the adults got to sit and visit in a beautiful setting. Cruising back to the harbor at sunset was a delight.

The only disappointment was that as we cruised back to the marina into the sunset, there was a huge condo building that obscured the sun as it was setting. I heard a rumor that the building is being torn down, but, take it with a grain of salt - it's a rumor.

Overall, it was a great way to spend an evening with family. As for value, I would say it is a little on the pricey side, but considering that you get a sunset cruise AND a dinner AND a delightful crew, it's worth the splurge.

We took the Haunted Ghost Tour and cruise of Charleston Harbor. It was a fantastic evening for this cruise - full moon, perfect water, and a wonderful breeze. The stories were interesting, and gave a great history of the city.

After a long day of seeing the city, it was a relaxing evening to just enjoy the cruise with a drink and hear some history.

Thank you Donna and Mike! We will definitely return for another tour!

We took this 2h Sunset Cruise around Charleston’s Harbor - passing by: Fort Sumter, Morris Island, The Battery, Arthur Ravenel Junior Bridge and the USS Yorktown. We saw a beautiful sunset over Charleston and dolphins!

Friendly/knowledgeable Captain and Crew - I would highly recommend this cruise!
