2 Hours • Ages 21+
The one of a kind perspective from cruising the water of Charleston Harbor provides insight into how this historic city developed since its founding in 1670.
The vessel used is a 22 foot bay boat going over the same seabed that saw a pirate blockade by the dreaded Blackbeard, one of the first major Revolutionary War Victories at the Battle of Fort Moultrie, and a Civil War naval blockade and battle that would inspire movies like ‘Glory’. Captain Bryan will provide history about 5 historic sites (Fort Moultrie, Fort Sumter, The Battery (Oyster Point), Castle Pinckney and the site of Fort Johnson.
Along these tours you will also have the opportunity to see a multitude of native wildlife including the friendly bottlenose dolphin and diving pelicans.
Adult - $35.00 + tax
This is not an average "sit there and shut up " tour, but rather an opportunity to engage back and forth with a local Charlestonian. As a combined bar and ghost walking tour, guests will not only visit two different bars where complimentary appetizers will be served and the guide will provide drink recommendations but also several haunted locations. As part of the tour guests will also walk by and receive ghost stories near local graveyards and homes, some of which are over 200 years old. The tour will wind down at a hauntingly beautiful local park where one of the first female serial killers was hung. Don't stick around too long after the tour or you may end up a ghost yourself!
