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 to Captains Source in Charleston. Choose between two options:

  • For $69, you get a 90-minute historical Charleston harbor boat tour for two (a $195 value).
  • For $69, you get a 90-minute dolphin watch eco boat tour for two (a $195 value).

Captains Source whisks sea-faring explorers off to an array of water-wandering pursuits and expands minds in history and ecology. A 90-minute plunge into the history of the Charleston harbor starts with a look at the city's role in the American Revolution and the Civil War, and ends by examining its infestation of mutated man-sharks. Cultured, amiable sea captains narrate tales of patriotic escapades and settlements, as well as Blackbeard's treasure-hunting adventures. Those who prefer sea mammals to maritime hijinks can opt for the dolphin-watch eco-tour, which zooms in to take a closer look at Poseidon's favorite steeds. With a fusion of salt- and freshwater from Charleston's many rivers, the lush ecosystem draws various life forms to the area, allowing nautical day-trippers to peek at over 277 different species of birds and a wide range of dolphin gang tattoos.

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.
