Dinner Cruise

Charleston is one of the oldest cities in the country with numerous historic sites. Taking a dinner river cruise in South Carolina’s Harbor offers a great opportunity to take in some of the city’s waterfront landmarks like Fort Sumter while enjoying dinner, drinks, and dancing.

Charleston visitors have a number of tour options to consider from structured dinner cruises to private options that provide more flexibility.

The 100-foot long Spirit of Carolina features an observation deck and two enclosed decks. In all, the ship can carry 400 guests.
  • Sandlappertours provides dinner cruises aboard a 45-foot catamaran which can hold 49 people. This chartered dinner cruise features regional favorites like Frogmore Stew, oyster roasts, and crab boils.

Along with history, nature lovers will thrill as dolphins play in the bow wake, and for some, the tour creates the perfect backdrop for a romantic marriage proposal. No matter your reason for taking a Charleston dinner tour, it won’t disappoint.
