Charleston Sleigh Ride
In December, Pegasus Charters offers the "Original" Charleston Sleigh Ride. Started in 2008, we depart from the Ripley Light Marina in Charleston upon the Charleston Explorer. We cruise for 1.5 - 2 hours listening to Christmas music and stories about Charleston's Christmas traditions. We provide hot chocolate to enjoy during the trip. Feel free to bring along a cooler with your own beverages and/or snack. Perfect for couples and families looking for a festive holiday outing.
THIS IS NOT A HOLIDAY LIGHTS TOUR. However, we know that viewing holiday lights is a high priority to our customers and we will travel along the Ashley River where the private homes in Charleston are located and then down the Intracoastal Waterway through James Island where we have a much better chance of seeing holiday lights. Be aware, we have no control over how people decorate their homes.
The Charleston Explorer is a covered vessel with restrooms available on board. Coolers are allowed on board if you wish to bring along additional drinks. Alcohol is allowed. No glass bottles please. We reserve the right to switch to a smaller vessel, The Inlet Scout, if tickets sold don't warrant using our larger vessel.
IF YOU HAVE A LARGE GROUP AND ARE IN TOWN ON A DAY WITHOUT A SCHEDULED TIME, CALL US AND WE WILL OPEN UP THAT DAY FOR YOU. THERE MUST BE AT LEAST 15 PEOPLE. PRIVATE CHARTERS ARE AVAILABLE. CALL 843-276-4203.
For Groups of 10 adults or more, a discount of $5 per person is available. Enter in coupon code GROUP upon check out to have the $5 applied to each adult ticket purchased. The discount doesn't apply to children's tickets since they are already discounted.
Tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE unless the tour is cancelled by Pegasus Charters but you may reschedule your tour with at least 1 day notice prior to the scheduled departure time. No shows will not be rescheduled for any reason.
