Charleston’s historic Harbor front remains the lifeblood of the Holy City, and SpiritLine Cruises provides your access. From the water’s edge, you’ll enjoy some of the very best views of the area’s historic architecture, the famous forts Moultrie and Sumter and the gorgeous Charleston skyline with ancient church steeples and bell towers. Many of Charleston’s modern marvels are also best viewed from the water, including the Ravenel Bridge, the waterfront restaurants, sleek yachts, graceful water fowl and playful dolphins frolicking in the harbor.
With this in mind, in 1961 the Campsen family of Charleston founded Fort Sumter Tours to provide daily excursions to the Fort Sumter National Monument. Today, Fort Sumter Tours and partner SpiritLine Cruises provide daily access to this living monument, along with other memorable experiences for residents and guests of Charleston.
SpiritLine continues to expand its fleet and offering of daily harbor tours, evening dinner cruises and private charters. In addition to the tours to Fort Sumter, SpiritLine conducts daytime tours of Charleston Harbor with refreshments and narration of Charleston’s rich history. SpiritLine dinner cruises provide one of the most enchanting dining and entertainment experiences in all of Charleston. SpiritLine also offers private charters and tours for corporate outings and special events.
