    Enjoy your own PRIVATE island hopping, booze cruise, dolphin watching, a sunset or twilight cruise with us! Weekday 4 hour special!

    We are only in Charleston for a long weekend and this could not have been a better start to our trip. Dave made our three hour boat ride fun and entertaining. He connected with us personally and really taught us about the area. We were recommended to him and we will be passing on the info to many others!

    Corrie and this yacht were amazing! He and Mike made our bachelorette trip so memorable! Even though the weather didn’t cooperate, Corrie managed to avoid the rain the whole time so we could swim and soak up the rays. Corrie was courteous, on time, experienced and knowledgeable. We will remember this trip for years to come and highly recommend Corrie and his gorgeous yacht to anyone!!

    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!!

    Book this now. Ryan is an incredible captain, took us around the bay and to an incredible sandbar island, the experience made our trip. He had a cooler wjth ice and bluetooth speaker ready for us on arrival, so professional and clean. The most relaxing boat ride, lots of dolphin sightings, A+ experience!!!!

    My husband and I had a great overall experience with Ryan. He took us out on a relaxing ride, we played our favorite music with his Bluetooth speakers, we drank our alcoholic beverages of choice, and we came within several feet of some dolphins. The best part of the experience, though, was Ryan and his fantastic personality. He shared good stories with us, made us feel extremely comfortable, and didn’t overcrowd us in any way. 5 stars and highly recommend to anyone!! ⛵️🤩
