What you'll do

We will explore the Charleston Harbor together on a Speed Boat Adventure! No boating experience is required! I will teach you everything you need to know. Guests will captain my mini speed boats while I lead & guide them through 20 miles of the Charleston Harbor. I will be narrating & speaking to guests over a radio from my boat located directly in front of them. We will have a unique view of the Battery, USS Yorktown Aircraft Carrier, Arthur Ravenel Jr Bridge, the downtown Charleston skyline, Waterfront Park, South Carolina Aquarium, the cruise ship terminal and all the wildlife that call Charleston Harbor home. We will be on the water for approximately one and a half hours. This is the only tour of its kind in Charleston & is sure to be the highlight of your trip!

It was alot of fun. The bay was a little too rough so Graham took us on the river where the water was calmer. We did not get to see all of the sites but being able to go full speed was fun. We saw a dolphin at one point! It was a little challenging getting the boat up to speed but once we did it was very enjoyable. Would definitely try again!

We had a great time with Graham! He was very knowledgeable about the area and a great teacher. We had an awesome time out on the water. After the tour, he gave us some great restaurant recommendations in the area. Margie was extremely helpful with coordinating times for our tour.
