    Stop: 90 minutes -
    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. Due to construction, no parking is available at the Charleston Maritime Center. However, 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.
