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.

    We chartered Captain Barney’s boat for an excursion for our twelve-year-old daughter’s birthday. He helped us plan our trip, giving excellent advice on the timing of the tides. He and Rachel made the trip so much fun for the girls. He even had them deejay the tunes! As a bonus, we saw more dolphins than I’ve seen on any dolphin tour in Charleston. I highly recommend them!!
