South Carolina is renowned for its warm hospitality, rich history, and excellent cuisine. It is also widely recognized as being home to some of the best premiere boating cities along the Eastern Seaboard. 

In addition to a myriad of sights, entertainment, and experiences to enjoy in the state, South Carolina offers boaters the chance to enjoy the beautiful waters of the Ashley and Cooper Rivers, as well as historic Charleston Harbor where the rivers converge and flow out to sea. Boaters can enjoy both river and coastal water activities during their stay. Visitors are sure to be delighted by this lovely coastal state renowned for its Southern charm and nautical culture.

Boasting one of America’s largest ports, Charleston is arguably one of the best boating cities on the East Coast. Charleston Harbor is one of the largest ports in the country, and since it is formed by the convergence of two rivers, it ensures that the city of Charleston functions as the ideal jumping-off point for a plethora of watery adventures. During a boating vacation in Charleston, boaters can enjoy sailboat charters, yacht hire, kayak and canoe hire, guided fishing charters and powerboat hire. With so many waterways to explore, hire a local boat in South Carolina is one of the most appealing options when it comes to exploring this beautiful city.

Boaters who decide to charter a craft during their stay in Charleston (or who bring their own boat) will find plenty of excellent marinas to choose from, no matter what side of the city they boat on. Along the rivers of South Carolina, there are excellent marina options that are spacious and well-maintained for your boat hire.

Whether being drawn along the centuries-old streets by a horse-drawn carriage, sitting in a cozy restaurant enjoying incredible local cuisine, or out on the water enjoying all of the aquatic activities that South Carolina has to offer, boaters are sure to remember their visit to one of the most charming states in the United States. The historic and cultural experiences abound is never a lack of diversions on the water to keep any boater active. There are many beautiful sights to see on the scenic streets of Charleston, but from no vantage point is she more lovely than away from the shore.

    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.

    24' Sea Fox Commander Center Console on Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant, SC

    Dan provided a very nice afternoon on the water taking us to points of interest around the bay. Provided historical context to match. Best of all, unlike a big tour boat Dan would honor requests to provide further trip customization right on the spot. Would certainly use his services on future trips back to the Charleston area.

    4-Hours Private Boat To Beach Charter in Charleston

    Boat was actually so much nicer than I expected. Chad and first mate were prefect. We are a book club with ages ranging from mid 20's to mid 80's. We were looking for a trip to work with our monthly book The Indigo Girl and they gave us exactly what we were looking for and made it tons of fun for this entire (very diverse) group.
