Overview
This Charleston sunset cruise lets you admire unobstructed coastal views you would otherwise miss if only exploring by land. See Fort Sumter, the Battery, and more as you relax on board a premium catamaran. Keep your camera ready for an unbeatable view of the sunset before you return to shore.
What to Expect
Arrive early to meet your crew and check in at the Charleston Maritime Center, located in downtown Charleston. After a quick safety briefing, set sail on the Charleston Harbor.

Cruise under the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge and past scenic shoreline covered with sweetgrass. Grab a drink (own expense) and relax on deck as you admire views of Fort Moultrie, Fort Sumter, the Battery, and more. Panoramic views provide plenty of photo opportunities—especially during sunset.

Though this isn’t a narrated tour, crewmembers can chat with you about the sights as you pass and answer any questions.

Finish your tour back at the Maritime center, close to bars, restaurants, and cafes where you may continue your evening.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. The Captain and the first mate were knowledgeable and made the trip fun. Well worth the time and money. A good way to see areas of the city from the water.

Great way to see Harbor

This cruise well worth taking. Crystal and captain Jeff were excellent guides and hosts. Great music, cash bar, dolphins and the most amazing sunset I have seen in quite some time. 2 hours cruising the harbor with summer breezes. Thanks for a great night
