We had a fabulous boat tour of Charlestown and inter-coastal. It was the highlight of our trip! Dan was very knowledgeable of the historical waterways, and he was a super nice guy! AND the kids loved swimming off the boat! This is the trip to book for a family-sized private excursion.

We had four adults and two children (12 and 14). He toured us up and down Shem Creek, by the USS Yorktown, out to Ft. Sumpter and even around... More

Had a great day with Captain Dan today. He's very professional, knowledgeable and seems passionate about what he does. The tour was a great value as he showed you lots of different places and took his time sharing historical insights. He keeps his boat clean and well maintained. I highly recommend taking a boat tour with Captain Dan!

My wife and I took our first trip to the Charleston area last month and spent our first afternoon with Captain Dan. I can't say enough about Dan and the tour. He was very personable, down to earth, and a perfect gentleman. I felt like he took his time with us, giving us a very good overview of the area... More

Captain Dan took our family of 6 out on his lovely boat, and we had so much fun. Dan was very well-informed and educated us on about Charleston's beginnings and Charleston now. We also saw dolphins and birds and learned about the rivers and waterways all around Charleston. LOVED IT!

Perfect combination of scenery and learning about low country and charleston history. Captain Dan is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. His mix of civil and revolutionary history made the trip do enjoyable. And we got so close to the wildlife! (dolphins, birds)
