You are cordially invited to gather your family and friends for an intimate wedding at sea – with all of Charleston as your backdrop.

Or perhaps a romantic reception through the harbor is in order, for an unforgettable affair to remember. View local Charleston landmarks as you go, including stately Ravenel bridge and historic points of interest such as Fort Sumter. Keep an eye out for marine wildlife, be it a majestic pelican, or perhaps a delightful dolphin swimming alongside to wish you well.

Ideally suited for smaller nuptials or receptions, our event boat can host up to 26 total guests in style. Imagine a glorious sunset on the horizon as you exchange vows in front of the ordained Captain, salty crispness in the air, enjoying relaxing motion of waves as the pontoon boat gently slices through harbor waters.

Come aboard and make priceless wedding memories and splendid photos. Offering spacious seating, including bow seats, the pontoon boat features built-in coolers for guests to provide their own refreshments in this affordable and unique wedding/reception option. Plan for your first dance with our onboard premium sound system and party lighting. This beautiful new pontoon also offers the convenience of an onboard bathroom for your special event at sea. Contact us for scheduling!

Important information
  • We have a restroom on board.
  • This tour/activity will have a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 26 travelers
  • Be clear to your family and friends what your desired attire is for your wedding.  Classic white and blue is always a good way to go.
  • Outdoor weddings must have an inclement weather backup plan.  If we know it’s going to be rough on the river our home Marina is protected so having the wedding while docked could be an option. 
  • We are an eco-friendly company and won’t allow anything that could accidentally end up in our fragile ecosystem.  Such as balloons and confetti…
  • We suggest having part of your wedding photos done at remote locations.  Of course, photos on the boat are a must but space and angles are limited.
  • If your wedding is too large, consider having your reception or private sunset tour with just you and your spouse and of course photographer… 
  • Lastly, Capt Mike is an officiant and would be honored!
