Fantastic tour!
, Jun 2021
Kimberly was amazing. Her ghost stories were fun and just the right amount of spooky, and the cruise was a fantastic way to experience them.
Mediocre at best
, Jun 2021
The boat ride was great, but the guide who told us the ghost stories wasn’t a good speaker. She was dull and used bad grammar at times.
Fun Evening Cruise

Had a great time. Beautiful ride, boat was comfortable and clean. Crew was very informative. Great way to spend out last night kn Charleston!
Fun way to see Charleston from the water

Lee was just a great story teller. I wish I had gone when it was light out...I think it would have been better to be able to see more of what she was talking about. That’s the only thing I would change and I chose my time, so that’s on me!
Fun and relaxing

Would do again

Eloquent narrative with a comedic twist. Views were stunning. Would certainly do again when I'm in town.

Walden, thank you! We are so glad that you enjoyed the haunted harbor tour. Your guide, Mr. Macy has quite a sense of humor...The views of Charleston all lit up at night are indeed spectacular. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. Hope to see you aboard the Palmetto again soon!

This was a highlight of our Charleston trip. Lee was fun and engaging, and Larry kept us safe. There were also two people being trained who were cool and kind. The stories were awesome, and the views from the water were beautiful. We went at 7 pm, so the sun was setting......the pictures turned out great. There was a slight incident on the boat involving another guest who had apparently had too much to drink before boarding. When he first got on, he seemed completely sober, and at some point during the tour, he hit a wall. The staff handled the situation professionally and discreetly, without causing embarrassment or singling the tipsy guest out, so all was well. After the tour, we were waiting in the parking lot for our Uber, and Lee came over and visited with us until the car arrived. I honestly can’t say enough good things about this tour and the staff. You can 100% tell that each of them genuinely loves what they do, and it makes the experience a million times better. When someone does anything with a good attitude and they’re having fun, it’s infectious.

Ghost tour was a lot of fun. The layout of the boat is perfect, sound system just right, good selection of beverages. Our guide was excellent! I live in Charleston and look for unique local excursions. I recommend this tour to locals and tourists.
