Great Memories Await!

Are you looking for a unique venue to host that special occasion or party? There is no better way to WOW your guests than a cruise on the beautiful Charleston Harbor.

Carolina Belle

The Carolina Belle is available for private charters every day of the week mid-February through New Year’s Eve.  We boast magnificent city skyline and gorgeous sunset views from our open Observation Deck or the enclosed Main Salon. We can accommodate all types of groups and parties and would be happy to assist with catering and entertainment, or you are more than welcome to provide your own.

The dinner cruise capacity is 100-125 for the Carolina Belle, and the cocktail cruise capacity is 200. Daily harbor tours are aboard the Carolina Belle from the Charleston Maritime Center.

Charleston Princess

The Charleston Princess is a stunning vessel with upgraded comfort, viewing areas, and hosting capabilities. The Princess can accommodate up to 300 passengers and brings a sleek and modern look to Charleston Harbor. She boasts three decks for entertaining. The lower deck is enclosed and climate-controlled, the mid-deck is partially enclosed and open on the stern, with a glass solarium that is perfect for weddings. The top deck is open to the air. The vessel is 100 feet long, has two bars and a premium sound system. She is available for private events such as weddings, rehearsal dinners, reunions, social gatherings, corporate events and anything you want to celebrate.

Schooner Pride

The Schooner Pride is an 84’ tall ship operating in Charleston Harbor. She invokes visions of when Charleston was a very prominent sailing harbor as our country developed. She is modeled after the 18th century coastal trading schooners that once dotted our beautiful harbor. The Schooner Pride has all the charm and character of the great days of sail. The Pride is USCG certified for up to 49 passengers, and she operates out of the Aquarium Wharf (to the left of the SC Aquarium) and offers daily afternoon dolphin sails, sunset sails, private charters, and special events.

Charleston Lady

She is Charleston Tours & Events newest single deck, motor vessel. Perfect for a smaller group looking for a private tour or more intimate charter experience. We can host groups from 2-45 on board. The bow is open for fresh harbor breezes and the stern is enclosed, but has windows that can open for a nice cross breeze. We can set up picnic style catering on board and we have beer, wine, champagne, sodas and bottled water available for purchase.
