We had a a very relaxing time on the sunset cruise. We plan to do this one again. The Captain and Lee were very nice and made it very worthwhile.

The guide was very informative. The only problem I had was families not controlling their young children. They ran up and down the whole time making it hard to hear the stories

Capt Mike was welcoming, as was his first mate. Relaxed, laid back way to cruise Charleston harbor. Have already recommended it to several others! Lots of fun!

We went to Morris Island, an uninhabited barrier island. They had planned the trip for low tide and we had plenty of beach. Oyster beds! Lots and lots of shells,. They seemed to be very knowledgeable and we had a great time. Would do this again. When you look for them, you are looking for a small kiosk. There are... More

We visited Charleston this spring break and the Sandlapper Water Tours with island excursion was a big hit. Only thing they complained about was it didn't last longer.

We are local but wanted to explore new options with our guests from Minnesota. What a great way to see our beautiful city and hear great stories from a true raconteur. A real treat for everyone. Add it to your must do list with guests. We will be back.

This was my third time on the Sandlapper Sunset Cruise and I loved it...again. It is so relaxing. And with Captain Mike at the wheel and Tyler as the awesome, knowledgable guide and "server", you can't go wrong. Yes, wine and beer and good snacks are available. I highly recommend this tour.

Very good tour for 10 years and above. Description of violence and death may bother young children. Historical information was great. Bring cash for the bar. Beer and wine with Soft drinks. Jacket for cooler nights.

Our family has been on multiple local harbor cruises before but this was by far my favorite! It was a small group of people and the tour guide, Sam, was funny and really knowledgeable. Definitely recommend this tour!

It was our favorite part of the week. It was the perfect amount of time and was the perfect combination of boat/beach/natire education. We loved... More
