Sandlapper Water Tours

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.
