  • 1.5 hours

Climb aboard the Palmetto, our 45ft catamaran, versatile enough to venture down secluded creeks and handle the harbor's waters smoothly. With a capacity of only 49 passengers, everyone will experience a personalized atmosphere.

Feel the cool breeze of the Charleston Harbor as you hear bone-chilling tales all about:

The Hanging of Stede Bonnet, “The Gentleman Pirate”

  • Tragic deaths and the lost fortunes left behind
  • Soldiers and fishermen lost to the dark waves of the Harbor
  • Ships that appear as a warning to seafarers
  • The Holy City’s long history of bloody wars and devastating storms

Charleston’s forts, houses, and ships are the centerpiece of many of the South’s most famous ghost stories, and now you can get closer than ever before to the fascinating horror of the Holy City's ghastly past!

Under the cover of darkness, you never know what might be lurking, and after a few ghostly reminders, you won’t feel quite so alone on the peaceful waters.

We’ll make sure you will never see this seaport the same way again!
