It was a nice boat ride but the beverages and snacks were over priced. They offer both outdoor and in door setting.

Thank you for taking our tour and for taking the time to write a review. Our vessel has a better selection of snack bar items, beer, wine and cocktails than any other vessel on the harbor. We have diligently researched pricing in the downtown area and feel like we are in line or below most venues when it comes to that.

Get the same history lesson from going on the Fort Sumnter tour and you also get to see the fort. We took the carriage ride around Charleston last year (highly recommend) and thought seeing the city by water would be a new perspective. Almost the exact same info that we received last year while getting to Ft. Sumnter.

Thank you for taking our harbor tour and for taking the time to write a review. Unfortunately, this is absolutely not correct. We cover quite a variety of points of interest on the harbor tour including Fort Sumter. The information on The Civil War and Fort Sumter may be repetitive as it is the correct history, however we also talk about The Battery and may homes and land marks downtown, which are not covered on the Fort Sumter Ferry and we do not take a direct route to Ft Sumter, so we get closer to the downtown area, Mt. Pleasant, Sullivans Island, and we go under the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge and give a great history on the development of the Charleston icon as well as some history of Mt. Pleasant and the waterfront park and pier. We're sorry, you felt some of the information was redundant regarding Fort Sumter.

Our boat captain was very funny. He did a nice job of explaining things during the trip. It was cold the day we took the tour but our captain made the trip enjoyable despite the weather. We were very satisfied with our tour.
