Y’all aboard. The Historic Charleston Foundation is hosting a Sunset Harbor History Boat Tour on Wednesday, March 22 and Wednesday, April 5, giving locals two opportunities to experience scenic views and learn about colonial history from a harborside perspective.

Attendees will board the Carolina Belle (which is wheelchair accessible), for a panoramic perspective of the South’s most storied seaport. Carin Bloom, published historian and the Foundation’s Manager of Education and Programming, will host the expedition and provide colorful commentary + historic facts while you enjoy stunning sunset views of Charleston’s architecture.

Limited space is available, and tickets include:

  • Light bites
  • Soft drinks
  • A drink ticket (plus, a cash bar)

The ship will leave promptly at 6:15 p.m. from 10 Wharfside (guests must arrive no later than 6 p.m.).*
