"Captain Mike was so much fun! He shared his love of the area, the history of the harbor and appreciation of Mother Nature with us. A great time!" - Cynthia

Charleston has played a major role in almost all of the early struggles of the United States from the first settlements, to the Revolution, Slavery, Civil War, Reconstruction and to modern day. The merchants and planters of the South became some of the wealthiest men in the colonies from products that were shipped through the Harbor. You can hear the stories of the pirates, patriots, blockade-runners; tall ships and lost souls surround you. The exploits of Blackbeard and Stede Bonnet, the first victory in the fight for independence, the first shots of the Civil War, the plight of the first Confederate submarine, the charge of the Massachusetts 54th, runaway slaves, and lost treasure, are just a few the historic events that took place here.

There is no shortage of things to learn that will help feed your seeking a better understanding their world. We will make sure to put you with a captain that can bring it all to life for you.
