  • Where do I board for the boat tours at Fort Sumter?

    Boats depart from Patriots Point (40 Patriots Point Rd., Mount Pleasant) and Liberty Square (340 Concord St., Charleston). Tour boats are provided by Fort Sumter Tours, an authorized agent of the National Monument. The National Park Service suggests that guests purchase tickets before the day of their visit.
  • Is my pet welcome at Fort Sumter?

    Pets are permitted on the walking paths around the fort and on the Liberty Square grounds. Pets must be attended at all times and restrained on a leash no longer than 6 feet. Due to the high volume of visitors, pets are not permitted at Fort Sumter or the Liberty Square Visitor Center.
