Eric Sullivan owes his seamanship and fishing skills to his 21-year stint in the Coast Guard. In his free time, he would fish the waters of wherever his job landed him, whether it was the Bering Sea, the Atlantic coast, or Mars’s one puddle. Nowadays, most of his fishing takes place along the inlets and marshes of South Carolina’s Low Country as the owner of his own fishing-charter company, Triple Hook Fishing. Aboard his 22-foot bay boat, the US Coast Guard–licensed captain motors passengers on fishing trips to waters that are rich with redfish, trout, flounder, and seasonal fish such as sharks and king mackerel. Through these trips, Eric is able to share his passion for fishing with others, and help families create the type of lasting memories he has created with his own wife and kids.

Amy Vann Flowers has deep roots in Hyde Park Farm & Polo Club. Her great-great-grandmother's family owned the property back in 1896, and her grandfather bought it back piece by piece after it was sold. By the 1950s the farm was whole again, and he left it, along with the 1865 homestead where his mother was born, to his granddaughters. Today, Amy follows the mission her grandfather started: to preserve this 380-acre low-country swath of history in its original glory. On its grounds, rolling pastures, saltwater fishing ponds, and wide oaks welcome visitors for weddings and private events. The grounds are also home to one of Amy's passions: a US Polo Association regulation field. At an on-site Polo School, a team of resident coaches teaches all ages and skill levels the basics of horseback riding, swinging a mallet with accuracy, and training a horse to do an end-zone dance. The field also hosts competitive polo matches, such as the spring and fall invitationals that draw in the nearby public every year.

It was February 17, 1864. The USS Housatonic floated in Charleston Harbor atop calm, cold waters. Below the surface, a group of Confederate soldiers sweated bullets as they cranked the propellers of the H. L. Hunley, speeding toward the Union's Housatonic on a historic mission: they would become the first submarine crew ever to sink an enemy ship. A 135-pound torpedo struck the Housatonic's stern, detonating a fiery explosion that sank the vessel within minutes. The Hunley then surfaced just long enough for the crew to flash a blue magnesium light, signaling to fellow forces on the shore that the mission succeeded and the submarine would return. And it did—but not until almost 140 years later, when it was raised from the harbor's sandy bottom on August 8, 2000, after author Clive Cussler discovered the wreck intact. Today, the leaders of the nonprofit H. L. Hunley Submarine seek to conserve, restore, and ultimately exhibit this historic vessel, as well as solve the mystery of how it completed its mission only to vanish moments later. They welcome visitors to see the submarine in its current condition—within a 90,000-gallon conservation tank—and educate guests on the vessel's many details. Guides walk guests through features such as the manual-propulsion system and automatic moon roof, and illuminate exhibits such as a lifesize model from the TNT movie The Hunley.
