Charleston is home to some of the most beautiful waterways in the Lowcountry. So what better way to experience a great day outdoors in the Holy City than with a private boat ride? While other boating companies in the area offer large group tours and set itineraries, High Tide Harbor Tours is proud to offer a truly unique experience. Forget tourist traps, waiting in lines and being stuck with a set schedule. Helmed by experienced Captain Dan Stoll, we offer intimate boat charters with exceptional amenities and flexibility.

Cocktail Cruises & Parties

Clink glasses as you bob gently on the waves surrounded by unbeatable natural beauty. Cocktail cruises are perfect for a date night or for entertaining a group of friends. Beach parties are also extremely popular with our guests. We can take you out to secluded areas that are only accessible by boat for a full day of fun!

Family Outings

Private boat rides are the perfect activity for family outings, whether you’re a local or just visiting for the weekend. The kids can dive off the swimming platform while mom and pop relax and soak up the sun on the bow.

River Cruises

For a more unique experience, consider joining us for private boat rides along one of Charleston’s many scenic rivers. We can take you along the Cooper, Wando, Stone and Ashley Rivers for a wonderful day on the water.
