We are conveniently located on the Charleston peninsula! Our pickup marina is The Bristol marina and the address is 185 Lockwood Dr. This is the address for Brittle Bank park, which is the best location to access the marina. It’s a long park so try to park or get dropped off directly across the street from the Marriott hotel. Once you are looking at the water, head towards the left, walk past the stack of row boats, and walk through the gated access. You will walk directly into the Tiki Party Boat!
Please try to be 15-20 minutes early to give yourself plenty of time. If you are on a public or semi-private tour, we will leave after 10 minutes of waiting. Refunds will not be given if you miss the boat so please try to get there early!
We provide all tours with coolers, ice, sound system, bathroom, and mist fans to keep people cool. Being a chartered cruise, the boat also comes with a captain and first mate to accommodate groups with whatever they need.
Our Friday-Sunday private and semi-private tours are also provided with waters and finger sandwiches. Guests are welcome to bring more food as this is not intended to be a meal. Our public ticketed tours come with either live music or a historical guide.
Groups are welcome to bring out food as well as other beverages (no hard liquor). We do not have plates or cups so please bring them if needed! Swimming is sometimes possible for our private charters so towels and swimsuits are never a bad idea. We definitely recommend sunscreen or any other protective sun wear as half the boat is open. There is plenty of dry storage on the boat, so there’s no problem bringing your phones out.
We’ll start the tour by cruising along the Charleston peninsula, giving guests unobstructed views of luxury yachts and the waterfront homes of the Battery. Depending on the wind and chop, we might take a lap through our historic harbor or hit some of the calmer, scenic creeks. Either way the views from the boat are spectacular and time spent unforgettable!
The best views of Charleston are always from the water! Expect to see plenty of local wildlife, historic landmarks, and luxury homes sprinkled throughout the breathtaking scenery of the lowcountry. It’s pretty rare that we don’t see at least one dolphin on our tours!
There is not a bar on the boat, but there is plenty of cooler space and table tops for all your beverages!
Unfortunately, we are not allowed to provide alcohol. You can bring out as much beer and wine as you like though (just no liquor please)!
Tip is not included in the price of the charter. Our staff is able to take venmo or cash though!
Swimming is sometimes possible on our private and semi-private cruises, but not guaranteed. In Charleston, we have large tidal swings, which can result in very strong currents. If we feel the conditions are unsafe for swimming then we’ll ask everyone to stay on the boat. The good news is we added mist fans to keep everyone cool in the event you can’t hop in!
Yes there is!
Private charters are exactly what they sound like. Just you and your friends! Semi-Private tours are geared towards our bachelor and bachelorette parties that don’t mind sharing with each other and want to save a little extra money.
All of our semi-private groups are bachelor and bachelorette parties… so basically other bachelor and bachelorette parties! We do our best to match up bachelor parties with bachelorette parties on the boat but it doesn’t always work out that way. Either way you’ll be getting on the best party boat in Charleston (possibly the world)!
Yes! Half the boat is open so don’t forget your SPF!
Our private party charters are great for all groups. Whether it’s a family reunion, birthday party, company outing or bachelorette party, we have you covered!
Smoking is not permitted on the boat. E-cigs are fine though.
