As the Carolina Queen floats into the Charleston Harbor this spring, it brings with it multiple options for visitors who want to experience dining, music and entertainment on the water. Charleston Harbor Tours takes visitors on tours aboard the Carolina Belle as well as hosting regular Blues & BBQ cruises, but the Carolina Queen provides an additional venue for specialty cruises and private events.
Built in 1982, Charleston Harbor Tours bought the vessel from a company in Texas and has spent the last year refurbishing the 400-passenger boat and readying it for Charlestoní_s peak spring and summer season. Its the city’s only true paddlewheel vessel offering that river boat-style atmosphere perfect for a jazz brunch or murder mystery cruise. With two covered decks and an air-conditioned main salon guests will be able to take in those harbor sunsets and views of the majestic Cooper River Bridge. And with a top third deck stretching more than 35 feet above the water the vantage point is perfect for watching dolphins play in the harbor.
