Thanks for taking the time to write a review and we are glad you enjoyed the Cruise! If you saw a manatee that was special we see them a few times of year! Just to clarify the catamaran , you have sailing cats and powered cats. As you well know we are not a sailing cat. Pontoons are made of steel and aluminum and our rounded at the end and don't do well in Saltwater and are real bouncy. A catamaran is usually made from fiberglass and is shaped to cut through the water, even if conditions are rough. Catamarans are very stable boats. The maker of our boat is Corinthian Catamarans. I know it can be confusing if you are not a boat person. Just wanted to clarify. Thanks for the 5 star and we hope y'all enjoyed your stay in Charleston!

Remember when you would gather around the campfire as a kid and hear ghost stories? Well replace the campfire with a catamaran and the woods with the Charleston Bay and that’s the experience you get here.

Lee was an awesome tour guide and …

We took the sunset cruise and it couldn’t have been a more perfect way to end our stay in Charleston. The staff was friendly and informative. The boat was comfortable for Picture taking. We really appreciated the sunset the captain arranged

We had a great time on our Sunset cruise. The crew was friendly and made the trip really enjoyable. We had a group of 5 and there were enough passengers to keep it entertaining without feeling crowded. I highly recommend Sandlapper.

We got to listen to some very good ghost stories about the Charleston of old.
