Concierge.com's insider take:

No visit to Charleston is complete without a tour of this famous fort, where Confederate soldiers fired the first shot of the Civil War on April 12, 1861. Fort Sumter Tours (800 789 3678; www.fortsumtertours.com ) operates boats to the island from the City Marina, or from Mount Pleasant at the Patriots Point Maritime Museum, the world's largest naval and maritime museum. The 30-minute cruise is fully narrated and points out sights of historical significance. On the island, guides explain Fort Sumter's pivotal role in the War Between the States. The fort is also accessible by private watercraft. Entrance is free and boat tour costs $13 for adults.
