The Carolina Rover, our 40 ft. pontoon boat, will take you on the Shellling & Lighthouse Cruise or to Hobcaw Barony on the Historic Hobcaw Cruise & Hobcaw House Tour.

Shelling & Lighthouse Cruise: The Carolina Rover will take you, your family and friends out on a 3.5-4 hour eco-tourism cruise that is guaranteed to be unlike any other attraction along the Grand Strand. Our comfortable shaded 40 ft. pontoon boat cruises on smooth inland waters to a remote barrier island where the Winyah Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean.
Glide through a bird-watcher's paradise by South Carolina's oldest operational lighthouse, the Georgetown Light (1811). She has lit the way for more than two centuries of seafarers. Disembark on North Island to explore and beach comb where the sea unfolds her secrets, depositing an ever-changing array of shelling opportunities.
Observe the sight of a Civil War wreck, the Union flagship USS Harvest Moon, while our on-board naturalists deliver an informative commentary with reference to our historic plantation tidelands. Keep an eye out for dolphins, bald eagles, shore birds, alligators, sturgeon, and maybe even sea turtles!
This cruise is a wonderful, unique experience for all ages.

Historic Hobcaw Cruise & House Tour: Join us for a three hour voyage through the Winyah Bay toward the Great Pee Dee River, giving view to majestic oak trees and the abandoned rice fields of Hobcaw Barony, to tour Bernard Baruch's winter hunting retreat.
Step aboard in Georgetown and travel back in time to Hobcaw Barony pier to disembark and begin your one hour tour of the Hobcaw House, built in 1930 high above the Winyah Bay. After exploring the Hobcaw House your cruise continues to view the smokestack of the USS Harvest Moon, a Civil War Flagship of the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron 1864-1865, resting on the dregs of Winyah Bay for more than a century. Thereafter, cross the Winyah Bay to glide by the historic site of Battery White, an artillery battery constructed by the Confederates, during the American Civil War, built in 1862-63 to defend Winyah Bay.
Once home to the Waccamaw Indians, this colonial land grant was divided into 14 plantations by 1865. With the decline of the rice cultivation, Hobcaw was bought by Bernard M. Baruch, a Wall Street financier and presidential advisor, who used it as a winter hunting retreat. Baruch's daughter, Belle, later owned the 16,000-acre estate. At her death, the Belle W. Baruch Foundation was created to operate Hobcaw Barony as a center for environmental research.
