Great experience and will go again! In depth instructions before taking off on the boats, safety was important and Graham made sure to emphasize that. Brief history lesson in each of the stops along the way, great way to learn about the city from a different view. Lots of time spent going full throttle, which made for a fun time throughout. I would recommend this to anyone who is an adrenaline junkie and loves being on the water. 10/10 experience and worth the money!

Such a fun thing to do on a beautiful Charleston day! Graham was very safety-conscious, his boats are well-maintained, and he’s very knowledgeable about the different ships in the area. I highly recommend the 9am one as the water was more calm than later in the day so we got to go into the harbor where other tours weren’t able to. Thanks Graham!!

Discovered on Groupon. Met promptly in the morning. Guide/Graham was unwelcoming at first but opened up when talking about safety and operation information and route of travel at the dock. The thrill is operating and riding in speedboat and seeing different sites of Charleston. You do not get close to any one landmark/monument/site. Limited information is shared via 2-way radio while idling in the water, so if you want in depth content about a site/landmark this is not the tour. Unfortunately, we arrived back at the dock 30 minutes early so we were not out the full time, but we did enjoy ourselves.
