This 2 - 2.5 hour event combines everything we love about the Lowcountry. 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 & Grill. We will share the history of Shem Creek from its early use in the 1700's through today & its importance to the Shrimping Industry in Charleston. We will discuss the economic & 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 complimentary beverage at Vickery's Bar & Grill so you can enjoy the beautiful vista only available on Shem Creek. This tour has all the elements we love here - history, the great outdoors, & a cool drink to enjoy while relishing the best view in Charleston.
We are not responsible for anyone who has an allergic reaction to shrimp, please be aware of food allergies before eating any shrimp. The shrimp boats located on Shem Creek are working 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 because we need to ensure we have enough shrimp for the shrimp boil. Cash Only at the tour site, if you want to pay by credit card, please purchase your tickets online.
TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE UNLESS THE TOUR IS CANCELLED BY PEGASUS CHARTERS. POP UP SHOWERS ARE COMMON DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS AND MOVE THROUGH QUICKLY. WE WILL CONTACT YOU IF WE NEED TO CANCEL.
The Complimentary children ticket is for the tour only. Let me know if you want your child to share in the shrimp & beverage, an additional charge of $10 will apply.
Tickets are available for just the walking tour, no food or drink if you aren't a fan of shrimp.
The walking tour covers approximately 1 mile.
All children must be accompanied by an adult. Parents are responsible for watching their children while on the docks, not all docks have railings and children can end up in the water if not careful.

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 better chance of seeing lights. Be aware, we have no control over people decorating their homes.
DECEMBER 10 - this is the night of the holiday boat parade in Charleston harbor. After our tour, we will stay out longer to view the boats. Expect another 1 - 1.5 hours on the boat.
The Charleston Explorer is a covered vessel with restrooms. Coolers are allowed if you wish to bring along additional drinks. Alcohol is allowed. No glass bottles please.
