“Perfect Private Boat Tour!”

My husband and I were recently in Charleston celebrating a birthday with 5 other couples. A friend who lives in Charleston recommended Harborview Charters for a private sunset boat tour. Captain Bret not only helped me organize the perfect evening on a private pontoon boat, he provided us with great history and facts as we toured around the Charleston coast. His price is very reasonable, and he provided coolers with ice for the beverages and snacks that we brought on board. We saw the mansions lining the Battery and several other major Charleston sites as we snacked and sipped on our cocktails. We were even lucky enough to have dolphins swimming very close to our boat! My friends agreed that this was our FAVORITE outing in Charleston. I highly recommend Harborview Charters to anyone looking to get out on the water and see Charleston from a different perspective!

“Best part of our Charleston trip!”

Captain Bret and his first mate were excellent!! We traveled to Charleston from Raleigh and made it a goal to get on a boat. We chose the sunset tour and enjoyed it so much that we went back for the shelling tour the next day. Captain Bret offered the perfect amount of information about the city and the harbor but left lots of time for enjoy a glass of wine (or two!) and meet other passengers. Can't wait to bring my parents back this fall to experience the dolphin tour! Harborview Charters offers reasonable prices and far exceeded our expectations! Thank you sooo much!

Our captain Bret was absolutely amazing! You could tell he loved his job and was excited for us to see the dolphins. If we saw any we would tell him and he would be more than willing to take the boat in that direction! Saw plenty of dolphins, got lots of pictures! and it was such a relaxing boat ride, my family and my sisters family all enjoyed it! There were a total of 6 of us including two kids from the ages 17 months to 7 years old and they loved it! Definitely do this!

“Second trip was as good as the first.”

We have used Harborview Charters twice now, and we are very pleased. Capt. Bret is great. He is very knowledgeable about Charleston and its history and shares information throughout the whole trip, but he doesn't shove it down your throat. He is good to answer any questions and is patient when people are running late. It's a very laid back tour and it's a really great 2 hours spent on the water. We will use Harborview Charters again the next time we are in Charleston.

“More than just Dolphins!”

What a beautiful ride! I love walking along the Battery when I visit Charleston and it was a treat to see it from the harbor! We saw plenty of dolphins, and a couple manatee too. Lots of birds, including an osprey with babies. The captain was very informative and took plenty of time when dolphins were present, so we could have every chance for good views. The Ravenel Bridge is spectacular and the ride took us right underneath of it. My husband and I and our teens loved it!

“Best Part of Our Visit to Charleston”

Called Captain Bret and got a Sunset Tour. Went so well, my wife and I booked a Private Charter a few days later. Was 100% stress free! Captain Bret took care of everything, and took us to a secluded island. Then he took us on a tour of Charleston Harbour. The Charleston Peninsula does not have a public beach, and this is the BEST way to do a beach trip from the Peninsula. I would not hesitate to use him again. It was the best part of our week in Charleston! Don't think about anyone else. This is your guy.

“Sunset Cruise”

The sunset cruise is a must if you want to take in the beautiful views of the Charleston harbor. Captain Bret is very knowledgeable and provided a great experience for all of the passengers. You can sit back and relax or stand up and take hundreds of pictures like I did. Also, huge plus is that you can bring your own alcohol! There isn't a more perfect way to end an evening in Charleston than drinking good wine and watching dolphins swim as the sun goes down. I will definitely book again with Harborview Charters.
