Harbor Cruise and Plantation Tour

What an amazing day. The purchase of the tickets online was very simple. When we picked up the tickets at the Harbor offices - the girl who was working was very helpful. The ease of using the voucher both when boarding the harbor cruise and at the plantation check in, was greatly appreciated. No hassle at all. The harbor cruise was fun - the information that was shared was quite interesting. I'm not sure that I can say enough positive things about the plantation tour (Boone Hall). What a beautiful plantation.

We all enjoyed our cruise (husband & wife, grown children & grandchildren)! It was very informative & the Captain did a great job sharing the local history. We especially enjoyed dolphin-watching as part of the tour. Great time for all!

Great fun and music...

I think this would have been much better with a different caterer. We had some great bar-b-q in the Charleston area (Sticky Fingers, which I'm sure you know caters as well) while we were there, but the Home Team BBQ was not all that great. The music was great, Shrimp City Slim was great!

Couldn't hear a thing.

I always like to take a guided tour of areas that we visit. This tour seemed perfect since we know that Charleston can be very hot during July. The tour boat had a lower level that was climate controlled where we would be able to get out of the sun if we needed to. The problem came when a small handful of us were put on a boat with a very large family reunion group. Not only did they get full use of the lower level with tables for eating and socializing, they really were not there for a harbor tour. They were more into talking and having fun with the family. I honestly don't feel as though we received what we paid for. We were unable to hear the narration( including the part about where the life-jackets were). Big parties on this boat are a great idea. But tell other customers what is going on. Give us the option of getting on a tour with just tourists like ourselves. I will be asking for 4 free tickets or a refund.

The boat tour was super fun and educational, we weren't sure if maybe it would be a tad bit boring but it totally wasn't, i would highly recommend it, it is affordable, entertaining, educational and romantic. My boyfriend and I went on it as a date and we took lots of photos, saw some dolphins, learned about Charleston and had a blast. Go on this tour! :)

Great overview of Charleston Harbor

We had a really great time on the 90-minute cruise. The "captain" was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It got a bit hot halfway through, but we were able to go to the downstairs cabin to enjoy the nice air conditioned area.

My mother is at the age where walking is difficult for long periods of time. Our tours were wonderful for her, She saw a lot of the city without getting exhausted.

Fantastic way to see Charleston

I had three friends visit me from Buffalo, NY - we had only one full day of touring - they were here for a quick weekend - what a wonderful time we had - we had the boat tour - then walked to the carriage ride - saw people, places, the market etc. on our way. Had a great ride - loved both the boat and the carriage - saw the harbor and the city all in one day. tMy guests were ecstatic - it was easy to get the tickets on-line. they had our names when we arrived - no problem at all - easy to find - easy to get to - and fun, fun, fun,

Charleston harbour tour and carriage ride
Tue, Oct 16, 07   11:30 AM slyall Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
My husband and I recently joined friends on the harbor tour and carriage ride, and both are wonderful activities. The boat from the harbour provides either on-deck or enclosed inside seating, and there was a wonderful "escort" of dolphins to watch during most of the trip. The captain has a great way of narrating the history of the harbor. The only thing that might be added is the option to order a box lunch at the time when individual tickets are ordered, as was obviously an option for groups. The harbor booth attendant was friendly and knowledgeable about the city, and plenty of maps were available. There was quite a wait for an afternoon carriage ride, but it was well worth it. Wagons are large and easily accommodate a small group. The driver was once again an excellent tour narrator. Here, the only thing that might be improved on is the addition of handicapped seating in the staging area for carriage rides; the singular streetcorner bench in excessive afternoon heat was difficult for an elderly woman waiting to take the ride. My husband and I learned of these activities through an article in the local paper, and we will surely be repeat customers!
