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.

    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

    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!

    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!
