    Dave is an amazing captain!!! He asked detailed questions about what we wanted to do during our 4 hour trip and he more than exceeded our expectations…. We had several dolphin sightings, swam off of the side of the boat, and got to go to Red’s for a drink… so much fun!!! Sound system on the boat was great and the boat is beautiful…. Clean… plenty of room too…. We were six adults and enjoyed a lovely lunch that we brought with us!!

    Captain Dave and Captain Lori earned a 1000 star rating! The charter was the best part of our Labor Day weekend. It beat the beach hands down. First, Captain Dave went over what we need to know. He immediately made us feel safe and comfortable. The boat itself is impeccably clean and well maintained. They provide ice, bottled water, towels and life jackets. There is a very clean bathroom on board. Dave and Lori seem like awesome people. They stopped to pick up litter out of the water. They definitely know what they’re doing out on the water. They are very personable and friendly. We loved talking to and hanging out with them. We can’t wait to book another charter with them. Thanks for an awesome experience!

About Charleston

A stunning port city in South Carolina, Charleston is teeming with charm and history to draw in visitors interested in getting a taste of southern cooking and lifestyle. Two rivers divide the city, the Ashley and the Cooper, which lead out into the Atlantic Ocean. The skyline of Charleston has no tall buildings, it is all classical architecture dating back from the Civil War and earlier. The exploding food scene in this city has put it on the map, and the hospitality has made many travelers fall in love with Charleston.

The best time of year to visit Charleston is during the shoulder seasons of summer when you can avoid some of the humidity and heavy rains that come June through August. Winters are mild, although it will be too cold to enjoy a beach day. April and May or September and October are the best months to take time to visit Charleston.

To get to Charleston, the easiest way is by flight to the Charleston International Airport, from where you can rent a car to get to the city center or take a taxi to get to your accommodation. The city is well connected to major highways if you’re arriving by car, and there is an Amtrak train station as well as a Greyhound bus terminal in Charleston.
