Harbor cruises depart from the Charleston Harbor Marina and provide views of historic Charleston from a distance. Groups coast around the Charleston peninsula, exploring the Intracoastal Waterway, connecting rivers, and The Battery. The cruise also crosses the lower harbor, passing Fort Sumter, Shem Creek, local shrimping fleets, and restaurants.
After 30 years of owning and operating a construction business, Ken Recine decided it was time for a career change, trading his tool belt for a captain’s hat. He first developed a passion for navigating aquatic avenues in the early ‘80s, when he helped man his family’s 40-foot Pacemaker boat. Now a USCG-licensed charter captain, Ken helms a 40-foot pleasure yacht of his own on saltwater cruises that explore Charleston's historic waterways. His passengers soak in picturesque views and sites—such as Fort Sumter—during jaunts around the harbor and overnight voyages from Mount Pleasant to Beaufort. In addition to standard tours, Ken offers customizable trips to Georgetown, Myrtle Beach, Savannah, or wherever the big black X is on clients’ “tourist” maps.
