Enjoy your favorite cocktail from our full-service bar or a great bottle of wine from our extensive list. If you are celebrating a special occasion or a romantic evening, we have a selection of champagnes to help you celebrate.
Outdoor dining is available if you choose to dine al fresco on our shaded topside deck where you can take in the evening air. Either way, you have the best table and water view on Hilton Head Island.
You can choose from dining inside on our lower level collimate controlled cabin with panoramic windows all around, or dine outside on our upper level in the open air with a canopy for shade. You can’t go wrong with either choice, as you have the best views of the Lowcountry at every turn.

Most evenings our cruise route takes us west across Calibogue Sound as we chase the setting sun into the saltwater estruaries behind Daufuakie Island. Along the way we will pass historical sights such as the Haig Point Lighthouse and the Strahn Mansion. Keep an eye out for the playfull Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin. During the fall and winter months we often cruise through Calibogue Cay and along the waters of Broad Creek which is lined with beautiful waterfront mansions and estates.
We sail early enough to catch the sunset and return after dark to the lights of Harbour Town. With incredible views and the welcome ambiance of our seating options every night aboard the Spirit Of Harbour Town is magical. Whether a warm summer evening or a cozy November night the Sunset Dinner Cruise is a perfect way to end any day of the year on Hilton Head Island.
