• As you enjoy your boat trip, have this fact in your mind. Charleston harbour runs for around 7 miles to the Atlantic Ocean. Its entrance is 1-mile wide and is flanked by Sullivan’s Island.

• Charles Town was the first surviving English colony in the Southern region. Which is actually quite remarkable considering the hostile Spanish and French settlements in the region.

• If you get time, why not head for the Charleston Museum? It was the first museum to be founded in America in 1773. Bit of history to take in there.
