Shem Creek History Tour with Shrimp Boil
This 1.5 - 2 hour event combines everything we love about the Lowcountry. First, we start with a leisurely walking tour that starts at the Shem Creek Park and ends on the dock in front of Vickery's Bar and Grill. While on our walk, we will share the history of Shem Creek from its early use in the 1700's through today and its importance to the Shrimping Industry in Charleston. We will discuss the economic and environmental impact of this picturesque area to our community and give you an up close view of real shrimp boats as they operate along the Creek. We end our tour with a genuine Shrimp Boil, using local shrimp, at Vickery's along with a complimentary beverage. You can even help pop the heads off the shrimp if you like. This tour has all the elements we love here - history, the great outdoors, food and drink. Don't miss out on this unique experience in Charleston.
We are not responsible for anyone who has an allergic reaction to the shrimp, please be aware of any food allergies before eating any shrimp. The shrimp boats located on Shem Creek are working shrimp boats and if they are at the docks, they will be sorting their catch and getting it ready for shipment. Large coolers will be coming and going along the dock so be sure to give them plenty of space to pass, we don't wish to interfere with their livelihood.
Reservations are required, no walk ups please, because we need to ensure we have enough shrimp for the shrimp boil. Only cash is accepted at the tour site, if you want to pay by credit card, please purchase your tickets online.
