About Mount Pleasant

Mount Pleasant is a suburban town near to Charleston, South Carolina. It’s a great place to visit for a day from Charleston or opt to have accommodation here if you’d prefer to be out of the city but still nearby.

The best time of year to visit Mount Pleasant is during the spring when temperatures are warm, and the city is full of gorgeous blooming flowers. Winter is mild, but it can be too cold to enjoy the beaches, and sometimes there is even light snowfall. The summer is the rainiest season, with the risk of occasional hurricanes hitting the coast. The summer can be a great time to visit, however, as it also has high temperatures and sunshine for enjoying the outdoor activities of the city.

The easiest way to get to Mount Pleasant is to fly to the main Charleston airport (CHS) and then take a taxi or shuttle or hire a car if you plan on exploring more of the surrounding areas. There is a train station near Charleston (Amtrak) as well as a Greyhound bus station. The easiest way to get around, however, is by a hired car in Mount Pleasant.

    Charleston Harbor Resort Book Bella Vita for 6 passengers

    If you are in the Charleston/ Mt Pleasant area and looking for the perfect afternoon or evening cruise, this is it! Yacht Bella Vita is a gorgeous vessel equipped with everything you need to enjoy the water, and Captain Vann was so polite, informative and friendly. He took the time to explain details of landmarks that we passed and gave us some history on the area as we cruised around. The boat was pristine and offered a nice deck with seating where we were able to sit comfortably and enjoy snacks and wine while taking in the views. It was a calm and relaxing evening, and the perfect way to see the town and surrounding areas from a different perspective. We highly recommend booking this charter and will definitely do this again when we come back.

    Amazing day on the water! Captain Dan was a great tour guide and accommodating with our children on the boat. The boat itself was immaculate and very comfortable. We saw so much and we’re able to swim for a bit in a relatively short period of time. Whether you’re a local (like us) or visiting Charleston for the first time, you will enjoy this tour on the water!

    Private Cruises in the Low Country onboard 6 People Hurricane Deck Boat

    Captain Barney and Rachel are the real deal! They helped me celebrate my birthday exactly how I wanted and showed my friends and I a wonderful time. They were gracious hosts making sure we had everything we needed, were very knowledgable about the Charleston waters (especially great spots to anchor and hang), and even made sure to capture photos of our trip (I am so bad at this!) so that we had memories to keep. Thank you Barney and Rachel, I will be back!
