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.
