Next August, The Great American Eclipse will pass over the United States and make its final appearance in Charleston at exactly 2:48pm. We are thrilled that our city will be a part of this historic event. To help you properly enjoy this once in a lifetime spectacle, the Wentworth Mansion has created the perfect itinerary for the eclipse that allows you to see Charleston from the very best views – by land, by sea, and by air.
This once in a lifetime adventure includes a sail through the Charleston harbor aboard the Schooner Pride while viewing the eclipse on 8/21/17. Even though only two minutes of your boat ride will be dedicated to viewing the Great American Eclipse, you will have two hours on the boat to gaze at the spectacular lowcountry views. The night before the eclipse will be spent on the enchanting cupola of the Wentworth Mansion joined by a local astronomer. You will enjoy a champagne toast and spend the evening learning fascinating facts about the night sky.
During this unforgettable weekend, you will also get to experience an exquisite five-course dinner paired with wine at the award-winning Circa 1886 Restaurant. Chef Marc Collins is known throughout the country for his inventive lowcountry cuisine, and the ambiance of this romantic restaurant cannot be topped. This trip of a lifetime is completed with a helicopter ride surveying Charleston’s breathtaking scenery that can be scheduled during the day or at sunset.
Whether this is your first time visiting Charleston or your 50th, it is sure to be the most memorable. We look forward to experiencing this historic event with you at The Wentworth Mansion.
