Two generations of the Campsen family have owned and operated Fort Sumter Tours, Inc. since 1961. In 1986, the business expanded into dinner cruise, harbor tour, and charter operations. This operation has grown over the years and is presently operated by SpiritLine Cruises, LLC. Combined, Fort Sumter and SpiritLine Cruises have safely conducted over 100,000 cruises and transported more than 12 million passengers on their vessels since 1961.
We have established a diverse and highly experienced passenger vessel company with an excellent reputation in the travel industry, passenger vessel industry and Charleston community. We are honored to operate our businesses in a city so charming and warm that Conde Nast named the top U.S. destination city in 2011 & 2012. Charleston is our home and we welcome all our guests aboard with that in mind. Hospitality is our family business!
