Ship records for the mid to late 1890's from Boston to Charleston, SC and vice versa

Do any of these types of records exist?? I am trying to find out if a) the story of my great-grandmother, who was born in Boston, was true - she and her parents traveled when she was a baby from Boston to Charleston, SC by ship and b) if I could find out if they traveled by ship from Charleston to Boston before that. Any suggestions or is there no such record that would exist??

My great-grandmother was born in Dec 1896. I'm assuming they traveled from Boston to Charleston sometime in 1897 or before April 1898, as her next sibling was born in Charleston by then. The ship travel from Charleston to Boston would've taken place between 1894 and 1896. Thank you.
