Boasting one of America’s largest ports, Charleston is one of the best boating cities on the East Coast.

    Wit was a great captain! We had a blast relaxing on the beautiful boat after a night our. He was easy to book with and also has an adorable dog, Popsicle, who hung on the boat with us that morning and was such a lovely surprise. Definitely recommend booking with Wit!

    If I could give this trip 10 stars, I would! Barney made for the BEST captain and made our trip absolutely amazing! From the on-boat bathroom, to the great tour guide and picture-taker that he was, I could not imagine a better person to man the boat for our bachelorette boat trip! We all cannot wait to come back to Charleston just to visit the great, Captain Barney! Until next time! (Oh yeah, and we saw dolphins JUMP OUT OF THE WATER! How cool!)

    Shel was amazing and she worked with us on our stay time due to heavy traffic during our weekend. The boat was clean and the communication and description was exact. She makes the experience as down to earth and fun as possible!! The boat held all 8 of us and we had an amazing adventure. I will say 6 ppl is ideal but nonetheless, 8 can go out. The life jackets held well for all the ladies jumping into the lake. These are very good ppl that provide a very good experience. Shel yeah!!

    Luxury Megayacht Charter in Charleston

    We booked this charter for a bachelorette trip and couldn't have been happier with our experience! Russell's specialty is customer satisfaction, he goes above and beyond to make sure all guests on the charter are satisfied and all their needs are met. This was the highlight of our trip in Charleston and I would highly recommend anyone looking for a good time with great people to book this charter!

    4-Hour *Private* Boat To Beach Charter in Charleston

    Had the best time with Holy City Boat Tours! Went with a group of 7 girls for a bachelorette and everyone had so much fun! Chad and Eric were great and very accommodating! We cruised around and stopped at a couple local bars. We couldn't have asked for better captains or a better experience. As a bonus we had a cute puppy with us and got to see dolphins! 10/10 would recommend!

    I’m a Charleston native but live out of state now. Barney was the absolute best. His boat was amazing. The weather was perfect. He picked us up in Shem Creek and road us up and down the Peninsula. A retired navy vet, he was friendly, knew his Charleston history, and I felt like I had known him for years. Will for sure be using him every time I make a trip home to the Holy City.
