Pegasus Charters is presenting a new Shem Creek history tour that includes a shrimp boil.
This two-hour event combines everything people love about the Lowcountry. First, things start with a leisurely walking tour that begins at the Shem Creek Park and ends on the dock in front of Vickery's Bar and Grill. While on the walk, guides will share the history of Shem Creek from its early use in the 1700s through today and its importance to the shrimping industry in Charleston. Guides will discuss the economic and environmental impact of this picturesque area to the community and give guests an up-close view of real shrimp boats as they operate along the creek.
The tour will end with a genuine shrimp boil, using local shrimp, at Vickery's along with a complimentary beverage. Guests can even help pop the heads off the shrimp if they like.
This tour has all the elements people love here: history, the great outdoors, food and drink. Don't miss out on this unique experience in Charleston.
Reservations are required, no walk-ups please, because organizers need to ensure they have enough shrimp for the shrimp boil. Only cash is accepted at the tour site, if you want to pay by credit card, please purchase your tickets online.
Tours are available every Wednesday and Friday at 3:30 p.m. Pricing is $38 for adults, $30 for children, ages 5-12. Children age 4 and under are free.
