EVENING CHARLESTON
HARBOR TOUR

CHECK SCHEDULE & BOOK NOW!


Enjoy an Evening Cruise of Shem Creek & Charleston's Iconic Harbor

 

You haven't really seen Charleston until you've seen it from the water.
 

We're a harbor town, and the views of the Holy City skyline in the soft evening light are unforgettable.  Take a leisurely cruise through the shrimping village of Shem Creek and into the Charleston Harbor. As the sky starts to take on the hazy purples and pinks of day's end, we'll take you along the Battery, around Fort Sumter and beyond in search of bottlenose dolphins, pelicans, shorebirds and more!

As the tour exits Shem Creek and flows into Charleston Harbor, we'll stop near Crab Bank Bird Rookery to see shorebirds nesting on the island (one of one only five on South Carolina's coast!) while your captain identifies birds and tells you about the importance of this nesting site.
 
We're offering this summer harbor cruise every Thursday evening through the summer.   Get your friends and family together and head on down to Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant for the perfect pre-dinner excursion.
 
With a Coastal Expeditions captain at the helm, you can expect the same level of natural interpretation that you receive on the Bulls Island Ferry and Santee Delta trips.  Don't miss this!
