  • Charter Options at Holy City Sailing

Bohicket boat day tours are popular options here. Typical charter options aboard Holy City Sailing’s Beneteau 373 include 3-hour morning or afternoon sails for $390, or their popular Seabrook Island area sunset cruise for $430. All tours accommodate up to six passengers. If you’d like to extend your trip, you can do so at $100 per hour. In addition, because the Beneteau 373 is virtually silent, you’ll be able to hear the dolphins communicating right underneath the boat!

During the 4-hour Bohicket Marina sailing charters, the vessel can tow a dinghy and take guests to Botany Bay, which is just south of Kiawah and Seabrook Islands. There, passengers can enjoy a private walk on the beach! They also offer a 2-day trip to Charleston Harbor. With this option, guests spend the night on the boat at the Charleston City Marina and the crew returns the next morning to take them back to Bohicket. This is an ideal choice for the most adventurous of guests!
