When I booked this, I was told it was $22, it wasn't but I was already there and not turning back (at night this area is pretty deserted and I had to take a pedi-cab from my hotel and back). This is truly a boat ride and not much of a guided tour, which was fine because I was able... More

We enjoyed our Eco Tour with Sandlapper. Our Naturalist and Captain were both very pleasant and knowledgeable. I expected a little more of a unique experience though - felt that the information was a little generic but the experience was fun and overall I would recommend it.

My boyfriend andI signed up for the sunset tour! This was such a relaxing and beautiful tour of Charleston during sunset! Our tour guides were very nice and hospitable. The view was spectacular, the music was awesome, and it was a perfect end to a day exploring Charleston.

A great water excursion to Morris Island to gather shells. Saw Dolphins and Pelicans on the way. We have a super naturalist with us.

The cruise was great! It was a small group, which was nice. It was just informative enough that I learned some things, but mainly enjoyed the ride and the sunset. The crew, Mike and Colin were knowledgeable and engaging with everyone on board. If I come back, I would go on the cruise again.

This was a ghost tour on the water. Basically a well documented group of ghost stories of Charleston while touring the harbor. Interesting, relaxing, well told and we left wanting more.

We had a a very relaxing time on the sunset cruise. We plan to do this one again. The Captain and Lee were very nice and made it very worthwhile.

The guide was very informative. The only problem I had was families not controlling their young children. They ran up and down the whole time making it hard to hear the stories

Capt Mike was welcoming, as was his first mate. Relaxed, laid back way to cruise Charleston harbor. Have already recommended it to several others! Lots of fun!
