Relive the early days of the American Civil War on a 4.5-hour adventure that brings you by boat to Fort Sumter and takes you by coach through Charleston's beautiful historic district rich in Civil War history. Enjoy a 40-minute ferry boat ride across Charleston Harbor to the island where Fort Sumter stands. Follow an expert guide around this coastal garrison where the first shots rang out to spark the American Civil War.
