Cruise of Charleston Harbor
Charleston as seen from the harbor
The Charleston Harbor is an inlet (8 sq mi/20.7 kmē) of the Atlantic Ocean at Charleston, South Carolina. The inlet is formed by the junction of Ashley and Cooper rivers. Morris and Sullivan's Island, shelter the entrance. Charleston Harbor is part of the Intracoastal Waterway.
Like most river mouths in the Southeast, the inlet is evidence of a drowned coastline, created by a rise in sea level in recent geologic time.
The new Arthur Ravenel, Jr. Bridge, constructed in 2005 and named for former U.S. Representative Arthur Ravenel, Jr., who pushed the project to fruition, was at the time of its construction the second longest cable-stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere.
