Along the ride you will see rice plantations, trunk gates, slave cabins, moss-laden oak trees, alligators, eagles and osprey. Your narrator will be a local historian, educating you on the history, mystery and legends of the Rice Plantations.

Plantations along the cruise include:

  • Arundel Plantation – This plantation received its name from Arundel Castle, seat of the Duke of Norfolk located on the Arun River, Sussex, England.
  • Chicora Wood Plantation – Elizabeth Alston, RFW Allston’s daughter, acquired Chicora Wood after her mother’s death in 1896.
  • Exchange Plantation – Owned by David McDowell in 1822. May be named because he got it in exchange for another piece of property.
  • Hasty Point Plantation – Tradition says the plantation was named when General Francis Marion made a hurried escape from the British during the American Revolution.
  • Squirrel Creek Plantation – The house that stands today is the second house built, the first house burned between 1827-1841.
  • Willbrook Plantation – The Tucker family was the original owner. Jesse Metcalf, 1936; then sold to the Hunter family; and then to the Litchfield-by-the-Sea Partnership Inc.
