  • Captains Source
    To assure fantastic seafaring on Charleston's waterways, Captains Source assembled a team of top-notch captains, each as unique and diverse as the tours they charter. Every captain boasts a U.S. Coast Guard 6-Pack license and is certified by USOBE or Clemson for the specific excursions they lead, assuring expertise piloting the ship and in the field of harbor history, fishing, or wildlife. Captains who are great with kids and families ferry them out onto the bay and estuaries for dolphin sightings and insight into the region's marine life, and harbor history tours reveal Charleston's close connections to the American Revolution and Civil War. Like the captains, the aquatic company's boats are also suited specifically for the tour, including sailboats, yachts, and offshore fishing boats. Wanting to make the glistening waterways available to the public for all occasions, they accommodate charters for business meetings, birthdays, reunions, and searches for runaway sea legs.

  • Trophy Lakes
    For more than 20 years, the aquatic athletes at Trophy Lakes have set national and world records all the while maintaining a 100-acre water-sports and disc-golf complex that has been admired by WaterSki magazine. Disc golfers launch frisbees from 35 concrete tee pads, sinking their discs into 18 baskets. Along the way, water holes and a host of tee-and-pin locations challenge players' throwing skills. Alternatively, two private lakes boast three watersports cables, as well as a slalom course and ski jump. Knowledgeable staff members rent ropes, gloves, skis, wakeboards, and MasterCraft Boats from their well-stocked pro shop. Additionally, Trophy Lakes hosts disc-golf competitions, wakeboard festivals, water-ski tournaments, and lake-drinking contests each year.

  • Sail South Carolina
    Light glimmers off the waves of the Charleston Harbor as a 43-foot rig drifts through its tranquil waters. Aboard the massive Panacea sailboat—a 1979 Endeavor capable of handily sailing 'round the world—captain Matt Luzon and crew member Julia Johnson survey the horizon, helming days of exploration for up to six guests. They host half-day and full-day sailing journeys to a variety of sites, including Ravenal Bridge, Fort Sumter, and Patriot's Point. More adventurous types can choose their own adventures, sailing to wherever the wind will take them, while the captain makes suggestions based on the weather and Neptune's mood swings.

  • Charleston Harbor Tours
    Gliding along the water atop the Carolina Belle or the Carolina Queen, even locals see the harbor with fresh eyes. These two vessels comprise the Charleston Harbor Tours fleet, and they, along with the tour's experienced staff, transport guests across the water and through time. During a typical tour, a guide will expound upon the history of the harbor and the city, taking groups past 75 landmarks in 90 minutes. Private excursions are also available for parties, and special events pair food and live music with scenic sojourns. Charleston Harbor Tours even teams up with other local tour companies in order to offer combo excursions that feature boating alongside carriage rides and walking.

  • HydroFly WaterSports - Myrtle Beach
    Hydrofly Watersports' guides rely on the waters of the Atlantic Ocean to entertain them. Amid its waters, they help guests explore the coast of South Carolina, from the urban shoreline of Charleston to the sandy resorts of Myrtle Beach. The guides charter boats, lead jet ski dolphin-watching tours, and even teach people to soar through the air on flyboards. When the staff seeks a change of pace, they lead guests out on fishing trips to seek out jetties, wrecks, and reefs teaming with prey such as snapper, grouper, and mahi-mahi. Those looking to tame the calm of the ocean while standing up can enlist in Hydrofly Watersports' paddleboarding lessons and rentals.
