Captains Source’s U.S. Coast Guard–licensed captains navigate luxurious boats through Charleston’s waterways while regaling passengers with local lore and tidbits on the scenery. On a Christmas-themed excursion, sailors can sip hot chocolate, sing Christmas carols, or chirp song requests at up to 277 bird species nested in the nearby woods. Tours unveil unobstructed views of historical sites including some of America’s earliest settlements, and captains recount tales woven from the venerable thread of historical events that helped to sculpt a country in its youth.

Up to 6 passengers can board the cruise, perfect for family Christmas-stocking stuffing or friendly adventuring. Gather together ‘round the helm to 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-shark

Captains Source

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.

Customer Reviews

Great trip and very informative -- Captain was great and very friendly
Chris S. · December 10, 2014
Our guide was awesome! It was one of the best experiences of our whole vacation. He even gave us a historical tour and a dolphin tour all together. We saw at least 20 dolphins and a manatee and plenty of other wildlife and ships galore! It was beautiful!

Captain Ronnie was the best! He knew exactly where to go to see the dolphins and knew his history too. Definitely going back again soon.
