The rangers and volunteers at Fort Sumter offer topical programs throughout the week for every boat. Guided tours and private tours are not typically offered by rangers because of the high volume of visitation at this historic site. The programs offered are by staff choice and are subject to change.
Visitors on the first ferry out to Fort Sumter have the special opportunity of assisting the rangers in raising the US flag over the fort. Visitors on the final ferry out to Fort Sumter assist the rangers in lowering the flag and folding the colors.
Guided tours are offered daily at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm, based on staff availability. Fort Moultrie is open year-round for a self-guided tour. Check in at the Fort Moultrie Visitor Center upon arrival to pay the park entrance fee, pick up a park brochure, watch the orientation film, and learn about the park.
