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

The historic and cultural experiences abound is never a lack of diversions on the water to keep any boater active.

    Private Cruises in the Low Country onboard 6 People Hurricane Deck Boat

    Barney and his boat were amazing. He was knowledgeable, easy going, and attentive. His boat was very nice and perfectly clean. It was also well equipped with water bottles, ice, blankets, and plenty of storage. It even had a toilet! We had the best time and would absolutely book with Captain Barney again. Highly recommend!

    We can't say enough good things about going out on the boat with Chad! From communication prior to the trip to extreme professionalism and service (not to mention a ton of fun!!!) Chad was wonderful to work with! We highly recommend chartering a boat with Chad to add to your trip to Charleston!

    Siteseeing in Style on a Cruising Monohull Yacht in the Charleston Harbor

    We had the best time and it was a perfect day out on the water. Captain Wit made us feel right at home and was extremely accommodating for our group of 6. It was easily the highlight of our trip to Charleston. I would highly recommend this charter for anyone wishing to spend some relaxing time on the harbor- taking in the sites, the history, or simply to enjoy the serenity of getting out on the water with family or friends.

    Sailing Charter On 32' Beneteau Cruising Monohull In Charleston, South Carolina

    We were in Charleston for a long weekend and met Captain Paul and his crew member Rhonda on Sunday afternoon . It was a beautiful day for a harbor sail. Captain Paul is not only a very competent sailor but a funny and brilliant man. I was ever able to take the wheel for a bit and sail the boat! The entire experience was awesome. My wife and I have been on several charters and this by far has been among the best of them. Thanks Captain Paul!

    Private Cruises in the Low Country onboard 6 People Hurricane Deck Boat

    Captain Barney and his bout "its a boat time" was the highlight of our tip in Charleston. We did a full day adventure boating/swimming round the waterways of Charleston. This boat has a ton of room to sit and move around comfortably. Barney has plenty of ice and coolers to keep your stuff cold on board and a larger storage area to keep things dry all day. We did a good amount of swimming, saw dozens of dolphins and got to see the city from the water. We can't wait to plan a trip up again soon to come boating with Barney on this boat or his fishing one!
