We took the Sandlapper sunset cruise with Capt. JP and Victor as his mate. The ship was full of nice people. The cruise was calm and the weather was chilly and windy as the sun went down. Victor kept everyone filled with drinks and laughing and even dancing. His personality is perfect for entertaining but this is his side job! We saw lots of the homes on the shore with narration by Victor.

Capt JP and Victor provided a wonderful sunset cruise for us on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Smooth sailing, great music and dancing with Victor, historical facts, great jokes, and a beautiful sunset. I will continue to bring my visitors to this amazing cruise! Victor is a gem!

Intimate setting with about 25 passengers. Felt very safe. We went up to the Ravenal bridge, past Yorktown Carrier, beautiful homes, Ft Sumter, Rainbow row. Captain told us details not commonly known. The pic is of our MC, Victor. He was very entertaining. All good!

The sunset was just spectacular! The “cruise director” Victor, added great fun to the cruise! We had a wonderful time from start to finish!

My husband and I took the sunset harbor tour with Shorelapp tours. Victor was our host/guide and was so personable and fun. Captain Robert did a great job filling in historic and background information. We would recommend this tour.

My wife and I throughly enjoyed our sunset cruise of the Charleston Harbor. Our guides, Victor and Captain JP, were excellent. Victor provided lots of entertainment but balanced the ride so that his commentary did not distract from our voyage. Truly enjoyable - we would consider another trip with Sandlapper.

Quite interesting and fun! The captain was quite knowledgeable with the history of the area. Seating was comfortable; beautiful sunset as promised.

Great cruise experience! Highly recommend this for a fun evening. Crew and captain were informative and got us around the harbor safely. Victor the entertainer and drink master kept everyone laughing. He took everyone’s picture that wanted them with the sunset backdrop which included a lot of antics. Just go! (Smaller and more intimate then the larger boat.)
