What You'll Get

The knowledgeable captains plunge patrons into the history of the waterways and city with tales woven from the venerable thread of historical events that helped sculpt a country in its youth. Up to six passengers can board the cruise, perfect for family 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-sharks.

About 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.
