Overview
Hear grim tales of Charleston’s haunted history during a narrated boat tour around Charleston Harbor. This ghost cruise is an entertaining way to learn about the fascinating historical sites, home to pirate attacks, naval battles, and more. The power catamaran makes for a comfortable way to sightsee in Charleston’s waterways.
Highlights
    What to Expect
    The Palmetto is a 45-foot US Coast Guard Certified powered catamaran that holds up to 49 people. All tours depart/return, from/to the Charleston Maritime Center at 10 Wharfside Street, located 1/2 block from the SC Aquarium in Downtown Charleston. We ask that all of our guests arrive 30 minutes prior to departure and to please check in at our blue and white ticket booth located on the far left dock when facing the water. Complimentary parking is available at the Charleston Maritime Center only. In the unlikely event the lot is full, off-street parking is available and a city parking garage is located near the Aquarium. There are clean restrooms available at the Maritime Center. And of course, we do have a bathroom aboard. Soft drinks, water, beer, wine and prepackaged snacks are available on board for purchase. 

    Once aboard and seated, our mate will give a brief safety talk before departing from the dock. Then we invite you to enjoy a relaxing evening while cruising along Charleston’s waterways. Charleston’s forts, houses, and ships are the centerpiece of many of the South’s most famous ghost stories. Come aboard and explore the sites that cannot be reached on foot. Feel the cool breeze of Charleston Harbor, and hear the tales of lost fortunes, pirate ships and tragic death while riding Charleston’s dark waves. Experience the fascinating horror that the Holy City’s pirates, wars, and storms have ravaged past and present.

    And when it comes to spine-chilling experiences and haunted sights, Charleston is the best location because it’s one of the most haunted cities in America.

    The best part of this cruise was the views of the Charleston Harbor as the sun set. Then the creepy ghost stories began as it got dark. It got a little cold out on the water, but I totally enjoyed it. My husband had a few beers and the tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable.

    Captain Phillip and Mimi (Meme?) were excellent tour guides on the ghost cruise. We got a little lost on the way to the dock and we got a call from the tour 10minutes before boarding and they were extremely understanding and helpful with getting to the dock right on time. After

    We very much enjoyed the boat tour of the harbor. Ghost part of tour consisted of 3 or so stories and you get to see pictures of supposed ghost on guides cell phone. I think it should be called what it is and I feel it's more of sunset Cruise. Staff was friendly and

    Thank you for coming out with us! We are glad you enjoyed the Sunset! Your guide was Leigh she usually tells about 5 - 7 stories. She shows pictures because in some of those stories. The pictures are part of the story. In Spring and Fall we do the them at night after the sunset Cruise when it is completely dark. Alot of people like when we combine the two because you get the Sunset and being on the water at night. On Saturday night the ghost tour is after our sunset cruise. We hope you enjoyed your stay in Charleston! Captain Bryan Sandlapper Tours
