Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide at the Charleston Maritime Center in downtown Charleston 30 minutes prior to departure, and check in at the blue and white ticket booth onsite. Learn the basics of onboard safety before heading out into the Charleston Harbor. This is not a narrated tour, but the captain and first mate will be available throughout the sail to answer questions and point out local landmarks.

Cruise under the iconic span of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge as navigate along the scenic harbor, and enjoy an mellow playlist of music. See the Battery, Fort Sumter, Fort Moultrie and Charleston’s scenic lighthouses from the water—with unobstructed views, this is the perfect time to snap photographs of the iconic landmarks.

Relax on deck for nature’s sunset show: the sun sets directly over the land, lighting up the clouds and waterfront. Soft drinks, beer and wine are available for purchase, and you’ll finish your harbor cruise back at the Maritime Center, close to some of downtowns best bars, restaurants and cafes.

So enjoyable!

Even though we rode on their nature cruise, Captain Robert and First Mate Nick were still amazing on the sunset cruise. It was just a little more laid back and a little more grown up. They had drinks and played music. Always made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. Great times guys!

My adult children (19, 21, & 22) liked how we were able to learn about the historical parts of the harbor. The Captain and shipmate were fun and super knowledgeable making the voyage extremely enjoyable. We had MANY dolphin sightings which was super cool, since on our Dolphin Cruise a few years back we only experienced viewing one dolphin at the very end. Even my husband and father in law, who never want to spend money (😂) loved it and told me I did a good job booking it!

Wow! Thank you so much for the awesome review. We are so glad that your entire family enjoyed the sunset cruise. Our Dolphin friends behaved well! Glad that we were able to impress your husband and father in law! Hope to see y'all aboard the Palmetto again soon.
