Historic Walking Tour

Located just a few miles from Downtown Charleston on the charming Shem Creek, this one of a kind tour will provide valuable ecological and historical insight to what is considered the heart of old Mt. Pleasant.
"My wife and I were visiting Charleston earlier this month when we came across Charleston Historic Tours and Captain Bryan. Captain Bryan, originally from the Charleston area, is young, very knowledgeable and extremely enthusiastic."

   This walking tour led by Captain Bryan is not your average “sit there and shut up” tour where the guide won’t even remember your name. Rather, after  brief introduction, Captain Bryan will lead you on a historic journey of how Shem Creek came to prominence with its famous shrimping fleet and much more. Unlike any other tour in the area, guests have the ability to see the industry at work. Perhaps you will meet Mr. Rector at Geechie Seafood with his several shrimp boats, beautiful reminders of the bountiful harvest to be conducted offshore. Furthermore, sample some of the key lime pie (if available) made by the family at  Mt. Pleasant Seafood market or try your hand cast netting or bringing in the crab trap. This is not a tour, it is an experience to immerse yourself in a culture that is truly intrinsic to the area. Take back history, culture, language, snacks, but most of all guests will take from this experience an underlying appreciation for our local shrimpers and the history behind these hard working men and women. As Captain Bryan says, ” Live the Local Life” and this experience is the perfect opportunity to do so.
