  • Chris was the best captain! So fun and knowledgeable about the area.

  • Great guy. Great boat. Great day.

  • We had a blast! Chris was an excellent captain and very accommodating for our group. Highly recommend!

  • Awesome trip. Christian is fantastic

  • Chris was great and everyone had a great time!

  • Captain Chris provided our group with an amazing day on the water! Highly recommend hiring him if you are looking for a fun day exploring the Charleston area by water!

  • Great day on the water, Chris is super friendly and has a great boat for a 1/2 day tour of the Charleston waterways. I couldn’t believe how much we packed in to a 4 hour time period. We highly recommend Chris as a captain!

  • Captain Chris and the Seat Hunt were a great time! We did some fishing, spent time at the sandbar/beach and cruised the intracoastal. We didn’t want it to end. Will be back for another great day on the water with a super fun Captain!

  • Chris was awesome as our captain! Boat was a great size for the 5 of us, and could easily fit more. He knew the area, gave us a history lesson, and took us on a really great tour of Charleston. We had a great picnic on the beach at the end and he even took us treasure hunting with our 2 year old :)

  • WOW! We had an amazing day on the water - all of our expectations were exceeded! We had a group of 4 adults and 2 kids. Christian did an outstanding job fitting in all of our wishes for the day (fishing, dolphin hunting, deserted beach landing, Shem Creek lunch, harbor tour), and went above and beyond by bringing us to some of his favorite spots, including a local dive bar. Christian is just an all around interesting and fun guy to hang out with for a day - but laid back and not pushy like some guides can be. As far as the boat goes, the Sea Hunt afforded plenty of space for everyone, and was a really comfortable ride.

  • Great time on the water with Capt. Chris! Perfect family time with a great guide to Charlestown.

  • We had such a great time!!

  • Do yourself a favor and book with Chris. Hands down one of the best times we have ever had in our beautiful city. He took around the local rivers, sand bars, creeks and places we had never seen before. Chris is a local who has spent his whole life on the water. So glad we booked with him and cannot wait to do it again!

  • Christian was amazing! Do yourself a favor and hire him. We def will use him next time we visit.

  • ALWAYS a great time with CHRIS. I think this is our third or fourth trip with him! our go to for a fun, beautiful, safe afternoon on the water.

  • Chris was a wonderful Captain. We had a great time and he brought us to glorious spots we'd never seen before. Perfect sunset cruise. We hope to sail with him again soon.

  • We had so much fun!!!! I can't recommend Chris enough. He knows the area and the history really well. He knows where the dolphins hang out, he knows the special island to take you to for beach-combing, and the best bars at Shem Creek. You will have one of the best days of your vacation if you go boating with him.

  • Chris and his boat were amazing. He took us wherever we wanted to go and was a great tour/fishing guide along the way. He really knows the Charleston waterways!!! Going out on his boat was the best part of our East Coast beach vacation!!!

  • A boating trip we will never forget and definitely do it again! Great boat, awesome captain and great weather. Thanks Chris for the experience.

  • A big thank you to Captain Chris. From the beginning of the process Captain Chris responded quickly, communicative and answered all my questions. We even changed our pick up place and Chris was very accommodating and without hesitation said yes. He was punctual and was right on time, the boat was clean and the cooler was iced up ready to go. He took us along my favorite river and even snuck in a view of the island house (where we got married) as nice surprise. We had the best tunes and lots of laughs. We just wanted to cruise around and see the sights and that is exactly what we did, with a little swim break when we were ready. It was the perfect day. He was professional and courteous! We will definitely be booking with Captain Chris again!

  • The boat day with Chris made our entire weekend! Six of us fit on the boat with more than enough room. Chris had everything from ice/cooler, dry storage space, music hookup, and even a bathroom. Us not being from Charleston, it was awesome that Chris was able to take us to places he knew we would enjoy! Saw historic spots, explored an island, saw dolphins by the battery, and even time to get drinks at a bar on the water! Could not speak more highly of this experience and think a big part of it being so awesome was Captain Chris! Thanks again, hope to come and visit again asap!

    Excellent renter, keeps a tight well organized cockpit; owns his own 23' boat (he's a fishing guide) highly recommended. Christian took good care of my boat, will rent to him next time he's down. A+

  • Awesome experience. Christian was very knowledgeable and professional and went above and beyond to show us a great time on the water in Charleston. I would highly recommend

  • If our party of six could give this experience 6stars we would! The weather was perfect, Chris was not just knowledgeable on the waterways but in historical facts + local lure. Chris' boat was in pristine condition + perfectly appointed for our adventure! We can not wait to book again with Chris!

  • Don't hesitate to book Captain Chris! The boat and supplies were outstanding! But better than that is the captain himself. He knows where to go for whatever experience you are looking for and is a super nice Charleston native with tons of local knowledge. You won't be disappointed!

  • Christian was the absolute best Captain that we could have asked for. He was extremely easy to book with and went above and beyond to ensure that our group had the best day possible out on his boat. He's knowledgeable about the area and came full of suggestions for how to spend the day and was the perfect mixture of professional and fun. I would recommend him to anyone who's looking for a great captain and an awesome day out on the water. Thanks for everything Captain Chris!!

  • 5 of us went out for a Sunday afternoon boat ride with Christian. Our experience was beyond expectation. Christian is a phenomenal boat Captain. Friendly, knowledgable, easy to to talk to. I highly recommend him.

  • Capt. Chris was a great host and a skilled skipper and fisherman. He put us right over a school of black sea bass that kept us busy most of the day, along with a smattering of several other varieties. We had a teriffic day on the water. I would definitely use Chris again.

  • Christian was great to work with...boat was great and he arrived right on time...
    I would recommend Captain Chris for your boat excursion or fishing trip

  • Christian was great to spend the day with

  • great time! Christian was very easy going and we enjoyed every minute of our trip!
