Explore the Lowcountry By Sea

The scenic Charleston area is surrounded by beautiful open waterways, glowing salt marshes, tropical barrier islands, and coastal wildlife. One of the best ways to appreciate Charleston's coastal charm is by exploring the harbor onboard one of the many boat tours. You can charter a fishing boat and catch dinner for the night or go on a guided excursion that takes you to some of the best-kept secrets that only the locals know about. These tours help you learn about Charleston's rich history, see its fascinating ecosystems, and be amazed by the vibrant Lowcountry sunsets. Charleston has so much to see! Exploring the area by boat is an experience you definitely won't want to miss.
