    Sailing Catamaran Yacht in Folly Beach

    Our trip with Ryan was amazing!! It was a special night for my fiancé and I and our sunset cruise with Ryan made it perfect. He made us feel right at home, took us through the beautiful marshes around Folly Beach, sailed around the rain clouds, and took us to some great dolphin hang out areas. We will definitely be booking another sail with Ryan next we are back in Charleston!

    Dan was a great host and wonderful tour guide. Dan's knowledge of the Charleston area was outstanding. He also did a great job of explaining the creeks and marsh eco-system to our 8 and 9 year old girls. We spent about 3 hours touring the harbor and creeks. The highlight of the evening was swimming and finding sharks teeth. By the end of the night our 8 year had become co-captain and was helping Dan drive the boat. It was a great evening.

    I chartered Wit’s boat for my bachelorette party and it was the perfect day! Wit and his wife were so accommodating and their pooch Popsicle was so sweet. They made sure we were comfortable, safe, and well taken care of the whole time. The boat was beautiful and clean with plenty of space to hang out. I would definitely book again!!

    Captain Ryan provided an exceptional experience for a sunset cruise. He navigated the waters with ease, and provided a perfect spot to watch the sunset (complete with dolphins). Highly recommend a visit!

    I highly recommend Christian. We had an amazing time exploring the Charleston area by boat. Christian was very knowledgeable of the area and we saw some beautiful scenery and sea life. Great communication, clean and nice boat, will be referring.

    Private Cruises in the Low Country onboard 6 People Hurricane Deck Boat with Captain Barney and Captain Rachel

    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!
