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.

    We had an absolute blast on this pedal tour for an October bachelorette party! The hosts were fantastic, entertaining and extremely responsive via text message with explicit instructions with how to get there, etc. The drinks were flowing and the music was great (we may have done more dancing than actual pedaling). Would highly recommend this tour!

    We booked a Harborbar Pedal Tour boat for our friend's bachelorette party a few weeks ago and it was the best experience! The boat was spacious, clean, and much nicer/newer than any of the competitors' boats we saw out that day. Paul was a blast - professional but also very fun and entertaining. Plenty of cooler space to bring your own drinks and a lounge area in the front of the boat if you don't want to sit on the bike seats. We had so much fun we didn't want to get off the boat. I HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone in Charleston looking for a pedal tour!
