Public Tours



Don’t just stand there on the Battery wishing you could jump on a boat and spend some time cruising through Charleston Harbor. Come join us on a Public Sunset Cruise. Our Boat, the Friki Tiki, will pick you up at Brittlebank Park at the scheduled time. All you need to do is bring your favorite beverage (please no hard liquor) and snacks and we will take care of the rest!

Golden hour here in Charleston is famous worldwide, and now you can see it from the water! Imagine seeing the sun setting behind church steeples as you enjoy the music onboard. Make some folks #Instajealous of your sunset cruise with Tiki Tours of Charleston. Book Now!

There is something about the seabreeze here in Charleston that makes you want to chill. Why not chill with us aboard the Friki Tiki, our 32-passenger party boat, and enjoy a two-hour cruise with live music? Each cruise features a local artist who will set the mood while you sit back, relax, and enjoy the breeze. 

These trips are BYOB with plenty of ice and cooler space provided. The Friki Tiki will cruise around Charleston Harbor. Private options available. Book a cruise and join the coolest boat/crew in Charleston!

We are conveniently located at the Bristol Marina, next to downtown Charleston.  The address for parking and drop-off is 185 Lockwood Dr, Charleston, SC 29403.  It is called Brittle Bank Park and is right across from the tall Marriott Hotel. 


Once you park and are looking at the water, head towards the left past the stack of row boats and walk through the gated access.  Keep going straight until you see the Friki Tiki.  It can be a little confusing so please call or text if you have any problems finding it.


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 at the start of the reservation. Refunds will not be given if you miss the boat so please try to get there early!


Every cruise comes with coolers, ice, waters, snacks (assortment of chips), table/cups, games, bathroom, sound system, and floats & mats (May 1 – Sept 30 , if conditions allow).  We also have add-ons like catering, live music, and DJ available upon request!  

Groups are welcome to bring out food as well as other beverages (just no hard liquor please). We do not have plates or utensils so please bring them if needed!  Swimming is allowed during our daytime summer cruises 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 and Charleston sun is hot!  There is plenty of dry storage on the boat, so there’s no problem bringing your phones or other personal items.

Smoking and hard liquor are not allowed on the boat. 

If you are bringing out beers and seltzers, please try to buy cans.  Wine bottles are fine.

Unfortunately, Swimming is not offered on our public tour or our sunset tours.  

Gratuity is not included in the price of the charter.  If you would like to leave anything for the crew, they accept cash and Venmo at the end of each boat tour.
