Was one of the highlights of our trip! Brian was our captain and Peter was the first mate. Both guys were extremely nice and professional. We felt like we were in great hands the entire time. Would highly recommend and hope to do this again! Thank you!!
Captain Chad and First Mate Eric were SO great! They shared historic knowledge of the area, attended to our every need and played some awesome tunes! They also dropped us off at the Shem Creek Boardwalk which made getting back home much easier. Would definitely book again!!
10/10 experience - we had a great time and the hospitality was phenomenal. Chad and James greeted us from the moment we could see the dock. If you're looking for a new way to experience the beautiful views of Charleston, the intracoastal waterway, and hopefully see some dolphins we could not reccomend this experience more!! PS the float is an absolute highlight!!
I booked Chad's boat for my sister's bachelorette and we had an amazing time. I highly recommend him and Holy City Boat Tours! We were greeted at the dock by Chad and his associate, Eric, who helped us load up our bags onto the boat. Chad put together a fantastic itinerary including cruising by the Battery and bridge, seeing dolphins (we saw a few!), stopping at Shem Creek (and making bathroom stops), and finally stopping at a sandbar. The sandbar was the best part so make sure you go!!! Chad provided great information about the waterways and Charleston's history, and Eric provided bartending service throughout the trip and made sure we were comfortable. They also took tons of photos for us, which was awesome. The boat's amenities are great. They actually have three coolers on board so there is plenty of room to bring on food and drinks. They also have cup holders installed and brought a giant floatie for us to lay on when we parked. The ride itself was super smooth -- we never felt unsafe or uncomfortable. All in all, this was the highlight of our weekend in Charleston. Definitely book Chad!
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!
