They made our daughter and son-in-law's wedding day spectacular! They worked with us on scheduling, the rehearsal, how to set up the tables, the menu, the bar, everything. Contacting and communicating with Libby and the DJ were a breeze. The payment plan was great. They supplied the caterer, who turned out to be Duvall Catering, and an awesome DJ, Robert Howell. We had a storm blow up. They managed to get the boat out before we were grounded by the Coast Guard so that the nuptials were out in the harbor, then we went back to the dock, until the storm blew over. That was fine, because the view was great, and everybody was eating the amazing food from Duvall Catering. Once the storm blew over, they took the boat back out, and everyone enjoyed the beautiful double rainbow, cocktails, dancing and a harbor cruise. The crew were professional and friendly. Libby was great helping me with everything, as I was the mom-of-the-bride, wedding planner and director, table arrangement maker, seamstress - you get the idea. Everybody spoke of how wonderful and fun the wedding was. The groom wishes he could have another one, it was that fun! I highly recommend them for your wedding or event. I would certainly utilize them, again! Thank you everybody!! I will review the food a bit more under Duvall Catering. Nothing was left at the end of the evening. It was that good.Sent on 06/20/2018

If you are looking for a unique and unforgettable wedding venue, this is it! Drew and Laura we absolutely fabulous in putting together a stellar event. Our guests loved the boat and several told us this was the best wedding they had ever been to. The crew is attentive and dedicated. I emailed Drew and Laura A LOT in preparation for our event and they were patient and responsive the whole time. They made sure all of our needs were met, even supplied a shuttle for my wedding party to go take pictures down on the battery before coming to the reception.Sent on 05/21/2015
We had about 100 guest on board and there was plenty of room for dancing on the middle deck, dining below deck, and enjoying the view on the upper deck. Everything was simply breath-taking!

Charleston Harbor Tours is fantastic! If you want to experience historic Charleston on the water, then this is your boat! With a professional USCG licensed captain that narrates history, sights, and facts about the Charleston Harbor as you pass the location, you will not want to miss out. Not only is it historic but it is also a great time. Everyone on board is professional and they know what they are doing!
What a great and relaxing way to see Charleston. A great Staff and great food. I highly recommend this for any wedding party, or anyone who wants to charm their spouse.
Great people to work with! I recently had a client have their event with one of my bands on their boat. They were extremely accomodating and very easy to work with. Not to mention, what a beautiful setting for a reception or rehearsal dinner! I highly recommend this company
