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 travel along the Charleston Peninsula for 1.5 - 1.75 hours listening to Christmas music and stories about Charleston's Christmas traditions. We provide a travel mug filled with hot chocolate which is yours to keep. Perfect for couples and families looking for a festive holiday outing.
THIS IS NOT A HOLIDAY LIGHTS TOUR. I have no control over whether or not people in Charleston decorate their homes for the holidays. Each year is different and we don't know what we'll see until we get out there. The historic homes on the East side of the Battery do not light up, they are museums and stick with greenery. The West side of the Battery are privately owned and that is where any lights would be in the downtown area.
2 times available - 4:30 for Sunset tour and 5:30 for Evening tour
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 the number of participants for a specific date doesn't warrant using the larger vessel. The Inlet Scout also has a bathroom on board and coolers will be allowed.
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 FOR US TO OPEN AN ADDITIONAL DAY OR TO RUN AT A DIFFERENT TIME.
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.
