Adventure sightseeing

Every year, millions of people flock to Charleston’s shores to experience her beauty and embrace the laidback vibe of the Lowcountry. Their trip bucket list consists of seeing historical landmarks, shopping along the famous King Street, and maybe taking a day trip to one of South Carolina’s pristine beaches. These attractions are all worth experiencing; however, it always comes down to folks missing out on the most important one of all – a sightseeing boat tour.

Sightseeing boat tours are a gamechanger because when you’re out in the Charleston Harbor, taking in the salty sea air, nothing can quite compare to the feeling of freedom and joy that you feel. Every little caw from a seagull above or surprising greeting from a dolphin swimming below adds to the magic when you are on a boat sightseeing.

You can experience this and so much more aboard Harborbar Pedal Tours. Celebrate any occasion with us and experience a backdrop of an unforgettable fiery sunset overlooking Charleston.

As Charleston’s largest pedal boat, Harborbar can accommodate up to 26 passengers and offers a full 360-panoramic view of the harbor and city coastline. When booking a trip on Harborbar, guests have the convenience of booking their desired 90-minute trip time slot to ensure that their sightseeing boat trip is conducive to vacation plans. However, it is recommended to book a sunset cruise because these trips have a greater chance of guests being able to capture fantastic photos of Lowcountry wildlife, and of course, this adds in the benefit of watching our city’s famous fiery sunsets from the water.
