Ocean cruises are a luxurious way to relax and see the sights, unlike boarding dolphins equipped with saddles, which usually results in whiplash and water-filled lungs. Cruise the blue in comfort with this Groupon.

As the sun begins its descent below the horizon, passengers glide over the calm waters of Charleston Harbor aboard Captain Howie's stalwart boat. As they cruise past Charleston landmarks include the Battery, Ravenel Bridge, the USS Yorktown, and Castle Pickney on their way downtown, passengers learn historical tidbits from their guide and search the water for glimpses of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. Coolers and cameras are welcome, and passengers are encouraged to dress according to the day's weather.
Adventure Harbor Tours
Captain Howard, the man at the helm of Adventure Harbor Tours, has an inherent attraction to the water. The second he steps out onto his boat he finds less dread, more excitement, and a desire to share this joy with others. As the voices of Jimmy Buffett and Bob Marley sing from his boat's onboard stereo, Captain Howard ferries groups of up to 12 out into Charleston Harbor, where Atlantic bottlenose dolphins swim beneath the surface and one lonely scuba diver guards the harbor's flush valve. The captain's expeditions can take the form of private charters, fishing charters, or his most popular trip: a tour of Morris Island.
Untouched by cars or roads, Morris Island welcomes visitors onto secluded beaches filled with shells, sand dollars, and conchs. The 4-mile barrier island allows ample room for visitors to pick these shells, play in the sand, or run alongside their dogs—which Captain Howard welcomes onto his tours.
