Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Take a proper water road ride with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a 90-minute semiprivate ghost or historical harbor tour for two (a $140 value) from Captains Source.
Captains Source whisks seafaring explorers off to an array of water-wandering pursuits and expands minds in history and ecology while aboard a luxurious bay boat. Navigate Charleston’s notoriously haunted harbors during the ghost tour, an ominous 90-minute jaunt across the same waters scoured by such swarthy sea rovers as Stede Bonnet, Ann Bonney, and Blackbeard’s less fearsome brother, Soul Patch. During the tour, a seasoned captain skillfully guides the boat across spectral hotspots harboring the restless souls of bloodthirsty pirates and fallen Civil War soldiers while unspooling the eerie yarns central to their legacy.
The historical harbor cruise plunges patrons into the history of the waterways with a look at the city's essential role in the United States' first settlements. Expand minds with an overview of culture-shaping events, including the American Revolution and the Civil War, and an examination of the area's current infestation of mutated man-sharks. While floating along the magnificent harbor, amiable boat pilots narrate tales of patriotic escapades and Blackbeard's treasure-hunting adventures, recounted in an engaging tone that captivates passengers of all ages and dispositions toward pirates.
To assure fantastic seafaring on Charleston's waterways, Captains Source assembled a team of top-notch captains, each as unique and diverse as the tours they charter. Every captain boasts a U.S. Coast Guard 6-Pack license and is certified by USOBE or Clemson for the specific excursions they lead, assuring expertise piloting the ship and in the field of harbor history, fishing, or wildlife. Captains who are great with kids and families ferry them out onto the bay and estuaries for dolphin sightings and insight into the region's marine life, and harbor history tours reveal Charleston's close connections to the American Revolution and Civil War. Like the captains, the aquatic company's boats are also suited specifically for the tour, including sailboats, yachts, and offshore fishing boats. Wanting to make the glistening waterways available to the public for all occasions, they accommodate charters for business meetings, birthdays, reunions, and searches for runaway sea legs.
