    Throughly enjoyed the cruise! The captain and crew were very knowledgeable and accommodating.. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting. A great way to see the Charleston harbor and hearing more of the history.
    Awesome sailboat experience!
    David_S, Jul 2022
    We highly recommend this cruise! We were first time sailors and captain Whit took great care of everyone. He was very polite and informative. We took our 4 year old son on the boat and never once had any concerns. The views and overall experience was great. If we're able to come back we would definitely book this sailboat cruise again.
    Best part of the vacation

    Best Father’s Day Gift!
    Doyne_R, Jun 2022
    I booked this trip last minute for father’s da, because my dad loves sailboats and even though we are native Charlestonians we had never ridden a sailboat in our own home harbor. Captain Whit and Crystal were amazing! My dad sat and talked with them the whole time and had a blast! They were both incredibly personable and charismatic people with some pretty awesome lives and therefor stories. Crystal was super helpful and put the drinks that we had brought along in the fridge for us and while we were sitting on the beanbag chairs up on the front of the boat, she brought us our snacks and was genuinely super helpful! We would however like to know Captain Whit’s review of Hot Mustard. 😁 All in all it was fantastic, super relaxing and beautiful! Thank you so much Captain Whit and Crystal, Doyne had a blast!
    Amazing experience with a great captain!
    Holly_S, Jun 2022

    A beautiful evening to sail with friends
    Dann_W, Jun 2022
    Our best friends from GA and AZ came to CHS for a getaway weekend. We had the pleasure of sailing with Captain Wit. We had a fabulous evening of laughter, sunset and gorgeous scenery. We will do it again soon. It was amazing!
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    Thanks so much for the great review! It was a pleasure meeting you all and hope to do it again for some more fun and laughter on your next time into Charleston!
    An absolute MUST experience!
    David_H, May 2022
    The unquestionable highlight of my wife and my week long trip to Charleston was our 2.5 hour sailing charter with Wit (the captain) on his 36 foot beautiful sailing vessel. Wit (and his first mate Crystal) were delightful individuals with interesting back stories as well as (in Wit's case) encyclopedic knowledge about the history and current status of the harbor and the city of Charleston. The weather was perfect and the expert sailing of our two person crew made the entire experience simply PERFECT. Wit also gave us a recommendation for a seafood restaurant in town which we wound up eating at three times..............It was THAT good. If you want an incomparable sailing experience while in Charleston, this one is the one to take.
    Response from Host, Jun 2022

We are so happy you all continued to have great experiences while in Charleston and look forward to seeing you all again on your next visit!

    Fun on the water
    Joanne_J, May 2022
    Great food, great ride and fun with Capt. Whitt! Would recommend to anyone who enjoys a great time on the water.
    Awesome sunset tour
    Annette_P, May 2022
    I decided to do the sunset cruise to propose to my partner. Wit helped me from beginning to end to pull it off and it was awesome. He went above and beyond what was expected and I am so grateful that he was there to guide me and offer suggestions to make this a special occasion. I would definately do this tour again. Thank you again Wit. You are awesome.
    Charleston’s best kept secret
    Joshua_M, Apr 2022
    The entire experience is a must do in Charleston. All 4 of our party agreed it was our favorite part of our trip. Capt. Witt is a great host. Be sure to take an adult beverage to enjoy during the cruise.
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Thanks so much for the kind review! We are so happy that the 4 of you had such a wonderful time! We always offer bottled water and sodas but definitely, if you're interested in adult beverages or anything else we keep a refrigerator cold and empty for our guests to use as well as glassware and plate ware ready.

    Spectacular sailing experience
    Teresa_F, Oct 2021
    We had the most amazing time on this trip! We felt like we were alone on this boat and yet we had two very helpful sailors to not only do all of the amazing sailing but also help get us drinks and serve our picnic to us that we brought along. They were fantastic. The boat was very clean and the atmosphere was perfect! Definitely a highlight of our trip!
    Awesome Experience
    Lauren_R, Oct 2021
    My fiancé and I did the sunset cruise. Whit and his first mate are awesome; drinks, some dolphins, a really cute little dog and a beautiful sunset. The music was great too! We will def be back. I 100% recommend.
    Tranquil morning on the Charleston Bay
    Kathleen_B, Sep 2021
    My husband and I loved our outing with Wit and Christine. We were greeted, warmly welcomed and felt especially pampered with our morning cruise. If you want a chance to meet some fun locals, see Charleston from the water, and totally relax, this is your cruise.
    Sunshine, champagne and Sails!
    Dana_M, Sep 2021

    Best experience in Charleston by far
    LMChapelhill, Sep 2021
    This is a must do in Charleston. Whitt and his first mate were fabulous. The boat is perfect for 6 people. Beautiful inside and out. They really are full service. Bringing us drinks and food that we brought the entire trip. We just sat as a family and soaked in the sun and enjoyed the day! Will definitely do it again.
    Sail On!
    Hines_J, Aug 2021
    What an awesome experience! The ride itself, the hospitality and the scenery were superb! Not to mention the very affordable price. We really appreciated the knowledge of the history of Charleston that was shared by the captain🙂
