Blues and BBQ Harbor Cruises

A two-hour cruise from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Thursday night from April through October, the Blues & BBQ Harbor Cruise series features live music from blues bands and a Home Team BBQ buffet.

The dates in July are the 4th, 11th, 18th, and 25th.

The cost is $39.95 per person, tax included.

Sponsored by Charleston Harbor Tours and The Bridge 105.5, the cruises take place aboard the Carolina Belle. As you would expect from Charleston’s finest BBQ restaurant, the food is delicious: smoked chicken, pulled pork, baked beans, coleslaw, and macaroni and cheese.

Local favorite Shrimp City Slim (Gary Erwin) plays while you take in the sights of Charleston, including Fort Sumter, the USS Yorktown, the revered St. Michael’s Episcopal Church,the Battery, the Ravenel Bridge, and Forts Johnson and Moultrie.

You’ll meet at the Charleston Maritime Center near Concord and Calhoun before boarding the Carolina Belle. Find out more about the Blues & BBQ Harbor Cruises by calling 843-722-1112 or 888-224-5037, or visit the Charleston Harbor Tours site here.
