All of our customizable cruise charters immerse guests into the Charleston harbor for an exciting and unforgettable journey through Charleston’s fascinating harbor history. Our in-house event coordinator can help you create private dinner cruise packages or a private charter package, built around your specific needs and desires.
If you wish to have a dinner cruise, you may choose from our delicious pre-set Southern menu options, or you can let us customize a special menu for your group. All of our dinners are prepared by one of Charleston’s foremost caterers and are served in a “tastefully casual” buffet environment. Bartenders are included in your charter fee and you can choose to have an open bar or cash bar with beer, wine, and / or cocktails.
As for event photography, Charleston Harbor Tours can arrange for boarding photos behind a custom life-ring. These can be ready at the end of your cruise, or a CD of them can be sent to you after the event is done. We can also send photographers along to help capture the entire event.
So just picture it: Your group will board The Carolina Belle or Carolina Queen, have a drink, and take in the amazing view of Charleston’s beautiful harbor while listening to your favorite music provided by our complimentary DJ. Upon departure, head to the Main Salon for an amazing buffet dinner and enjoy the remainder of the cruise.
