By-the-Head Cruises

Historical Landmarks

See historical Charleston from the water, and take a look at waterbound historical sites like Fort Sumter and Castle Pinckney. Our captain and crew are also well-versed in the history of the area, and are happy to answer any questions.

Natural Beauty

Watch dolphins play in the bow-wave as the sun sets over the Holy City. As an estuarine environment, Charleston plays host to abundant marine life, which our captain and crew will happily point out and explain during the cruise.

Interesting & Like-Minded Company

As an interesting individual yourself, why not get to know the other interesting individuals over a drink while cruising the harbor? Sharing an interest in spending time on yachts and on the water serves as a great springboard to forging lasting friendships or business acquaintances.

Full-Service Experience

With catered food and refreshments, you won’t have to lift a finger as our professional crew handles every aspect of the cruise, while you lounge on the bow or up on the flybridge. You can even bring your favorite alcohol for a cocktail or two, mixers included.

Dockside Events

Economy and Flexibility

With more economical rates, dockside events can cater to a wider clientele and still provide the luxury yacht experience. Also, they have the flexibility to have guests who might have rolling arrival times or those who want departure times to be at the whim of the guests.

Location, Location, Location

Our slip is a short drive into downtown Charleston and as such could be the platform for a nice dinner before a night on the town. We also can boast beautiful sunsets over the city skyline right outside of the main salon, where we have 270° panoramic windows.

A Tranquil & More Stable Setting

Is your event more complicated or do you want to set up some external decor? Dockside events provide that stable platform and shelter from windy conditions that would blow away your beautiful decorations. As a bonus, those who may get seasick won’t need to worry about packing the Dramamine.
