Cruise Charleston Harbor at Sunset.

Spot Dolphins and Sea Birds

Charleston’s waterfront and harbor are gorgeous. Not only is the harbor full of historic locations like Fort Sumter, but there’s also the chance to spot dolphins and sea birds during a relaxing cruise experience.

See the silhouettes of beautiful buildings and church steeples while cruising the waterways of the Charleston Harbor. Whether at sunset or during the day, your cruise experience will be unmatched.


Tour Charleston From the Water

Seeing Charleston from the water is an entirely different experience from walking around the city center. Board a seaworthy catamaran and enjoy a smooth cruise to all the points of interest in the harbor like the USS Yorktown at Patriots Point, Fort Sumter, The Battery, the Old Village, and more. You’re in for a personalized experience with light hors d’oeuvres, great conversation, relaxing music, and gorgeous sightseeing.

The harbor’s abundant wildlife like dolphins and birds come out to play at sunset as you take in the views of lighthouses, private islands, and forts. Most Charleston cruises also offer cash bars so you can sip beer or wine as you enjoy the sights unfolding before you.

For a more unique cruise experience, book a haunted harbor cruise and hear bone-chilling tales of pirates, soldiers, and fishermen, as well as ghost ships that appear as a warning to seafarers. You can also enjoy a private Charleston boat cruise by skiff with your choice of focus. There are options for nature cruises, history cruises, and more. You can even book a booze cruise to let loose and enjoy Charleston with your friends and family.
