Explore Charleston

Cruising, Cocktails, and City Views in Charleston

The charm of Charleston is undeniable, and the Explore Charleston VIP Experience has it all—from an oceanside welcome party at the resort’s private venue to a cruise along the harbor. We’ve planned everything for you in this enchanting town, so that you can simply relax and fall in love with the city.

Your first night starts with a welcome party at the resort where you’ll enjoy dinner, cocktails and entertainment as you take in the ocean breeze.

The next day, you’ll get an ocean view of the city during a harbor cruise that includes a stop at Fort Sumter where you can explore Charleston’s most popular landmark at your leisure. Back on land, you’ll enjoy a catered lunch at the historic City Market, local shopping, and an exclusive tour of the city on a private motorcoach. It’s truly a day fit for a VIP.

Transportation will be provided to and from South Beach Resort and our experience. Please note some walking will be involved with this event (1 on a scale of 1–10*), which may include steps.

Call (888) 213-9990 to start booking your VIP Experience!
