By far the most popular Charleston Sailing Charter is the Sunset Charter Cruise. As if Charleston did not have enough to offer, the sunsets from the water are breathtaking. This town is filled with such beauty the only way to take it all in is from the deck of a sailboat. And if you are lucky enough to take a Charleston Sunset Charter, you will remember it for the rest of your life.
Boarding OM at Patriots Point allows us to be sailing within 10 minutes of leaving the dock. There is no need to motor far, we raise the sails and let the winds be our guide. The boat layout is incredible comfortable for the sun bather and those that want the shade. The aft cockpit is completely covered with comfortable seating and a table that will seat 6 comfortable for a picnic dinner. Of course the best seats are on the bow sitting back in the comfortable chairs on the trampoline. You feel as if you are drifting over the water, with the sounds of water and the occasional splash from a wave. This is where the stability of a catamaran comes to play. Sitting back there is no Heeling over, and your wine glass will stay perfectly still when you sat it down on the table.
With our typical afternoon Sea Breeze we quickly cover the miles towards the entrance of the Harbor. Here we sail by Fort Sumter, Fort Moultre and of course Sullivan’s Island. Once we hit our half way point we start our sail back to the Charleston Battery. This angle of sail allows for you to enjoy the full beauty that a Charleston Sunset Charter offers. The winds push us towards the sun as if in a race to see if we can get there before the sun touches the Charleston SkyLine and Church Steeples.
Like everything in Charleston, the Sunsets are world class. One could write on for ever about these but pictures are worth a thousand words. Enjoy some of our beautiful Charleston Sunset Charter pictures and call to book your Charter today!
