Where you'll be

After departing the marina, we'll take a short trip down the Ashley River and into the Charleston Harbor. During our cruise, we'll sail past the Battery and under the famous Ravenel Bridge before exploring the waters and history surrounding Ft. Moultrie, Ft. Sumter and Castle Pickney. From the Harbor, you can watch the sun set over downtown Charleston while the light plays on the Atlantic Ocean behind us. Dolphins are seen almost every trip.
