Welcome to the Sandlapper Tours web site. We are a locally owned and operated water-based tour and private boat charter company. We have Charters, History, Nature, Sunset and Haunted Harbor Ghost Tours all aboard the Palmetto, our 45ft USCG certified catamaran. Our maximum capacity is 49 people allowing a personalized atmosphere. Let our personally guided boat charters and Charleston harbour tours give your group a taste of Southern cuisine and charm.
We offer private boat charters with an assortment of options available to entertain your guests and their specific interests. Imagine your group experiencing an Oyster Roast or Frogmore Stew on the beach of a Barrier Island. We specialize in private boat charters and would love to entertain your guests with this unique and authentic Charleston experience.
Our nature tours and history tours are proud to have a local naturalist and local historian aboard who will interpret the sites your guests will see. Our sunset tours and Haunted Harbor Ghost Tours each provide a unique way to experience the beauty and legend of Charleston. The Palmetto is a versatile catamaran that allows our Captain to venture down salt marsh creeks, land the boat on the beach, and handle the harbor's waters smoothly. Experience Charleston, its harbor, and Lowcountry living like never before.
All private boat charters and Charleston tours depart from the Charleston Maritime Center located near the SC Aquarium. Free parking & clean restrooms are available at the Maritime Center.
