Charleston Sailboat Charters

Join our Boat Tours in Charleston, SC

There’s no better way to experience Charleston than to view it from the harbor.
Established in 2015, Charleston Sailboat Charters was created by Captain Jay Keeney with one goal in mind… to introduce sailing to anyone with the desire to learn and get out on the water. Whether you’re local or visiting, let’s go sailing!

As we navigate the Charleston Harbor together, tacking and gybing along the way. We’ll view various landmarks including: the Historic District South of Broad, Fort Sumter, the Battery and French Quarter, the USS Yorktown, Waterfront Park, Castle Pinckney and the iconic Ravenel Bridge.

We had such a great time!

What a fun way to see Charleston!! The Captain was a cool guy and knew a good bit about the area. Drinks and an amazing sunset on a cool boat! What more could you want? Would definitely recommend anyone and everyone do this when visiting Charleston.

Highly recommend!!!

Captain Bob gave us the ride of our weekend - could not have been more friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating. We've done a several similar rides but this was by far the best experience. HIGHLY recommend to both tourists and locals wanting a fun day at sea.

Our trip was fantastic!

I took my kids out on Captain Jay’s boat who showed us around in the harbor. We saw dolphins, and the kids got to steer the boat too. I highly recommend this tour with Captain Jay or Captain Bob!
