We will see many of the well known historic and beautiful sights of Charleston.  On most trips we will also see an abundance of wildlife including dolphins, pelicans, ospreys, crabs, egrets, herons, and occasionally stingrays, otters, manatees, and sea turtles. There is just so much to see that we can promise you won’t be disappointed so be sure to have your camera ready!

In the boat charter business it is customary to tip. We work very hard and make every effort to go above and beyond expectations. Tips are greatly appreciated!

Capt. JD stays constantly aware of forecasts and cancellations due to weather are at his discretion. If there is a cancellation due to weather you will be given the opportunity to reschedule. If that doesn’t work we will refund your money.

Remember, the Charleston forecast often shows a chance of rain. This typically means there could be a short rain shower. Especially in the warmer months Charleston gets short showers followed by plenty of sunshine. There’s an old saying that says, “If you don’t like the weather in Charleston, just wait a minute.”

If you find that you need to cancel we ask that you let us know at least 48 hours in advance of your charter. You will be charged the full rate if we are not notified at least 48 hours before your scheduled time of departure. We understand sometimes cancellations are unavoidable and we will make our best effort to book another charter in your place. If we are able to do that we will give you a refund. However, please understand this may not always be possible at the last minute.

Depending on what suits your needs the best we have several convenient locations in Mt. Pleasant and on Isle of Palms.

Yes, you are welcome to call and we will be happy to answer further questions.
