Bon voyage to the Carolina Belle as she heads to the shipyard for her biennial Coast Guard inspection. DYK, that passenger vessels of our size must have a full inspection every 2 years for salt water and 5 years for fresh water to ensure safe operation. Passenger and crew safety is of the utmost importance now and always! The Belle will be back to start our regular harbor tour season in February. In the meantime, we'll be offering harbor tours on weekends on our smaller vessel the Charleston Lady!
