About Us

Our Captain

Harborview Charters is owned and operated by Captain Bret Curlett, a Charleston native, who spent most of his life navigating these waters. He holds a US Coast Guard 100 gross ton Masters License along with many other maritime certificates and endorsements.

His experience on the water is extensive with 15 years Active Duty in the US Coast Guard (currently in the CG Reserves) as a Boatswains Mate and certified Coxswain. He is an expert in marine safety and Search and Rescue.  Captain Bret has thousands of hours behind the helm as well as rigorous shipboard and small boat training.    

Our crew was hand picked for their experience and knowledge. They are courteous, hospitable, and will assist you in any way.

Our Boats             

The Island Siren, our 32 ft. Beachcat is the ideal platform for the Charleston area. She is capable of carrying large groups (up to 26 passengers) or smaller groups that are looking for an extremely spacious, comfortable and stable ride.  She is capable of getting into shallow waters and up to beaches without getting your feet wet. In addition, she is fully covered to keep out the summer time sun.  


Our 23 ft. Sea Pro Bay Boat (up to 6 passengers) was built in South Carolina and made for our waters. She is capable of getting into shallow waters, tidal creeks, and is optimal for shoreline beaching.  In addition, she handles very well on those less than calm days. She is very spacious and comfortable for 6 people to sprawl out, as well has plenty of dry storage, rod holders, cup holders, and an optional bimini tops to block out the suns rays.
