When you head out on the water aboard a Charleston event vessel, the rest of the world slips away, and you can focus on celebrating. Custom cruises make for unforgettable fund-raisers and private events! Corporate events, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners and weddings, as well as anniversary and retirement festivities…….these are our specialties!
We handle the responsibility and offer a variety of catering and bar plans so you won’t miss a moment with your guests! If you prefer you may self cater. After your charter when you return to land, you won’t have to worry with cleanup. The crew handles it for you!
The U.S. Coast Guard must certify any boat carrying more than six passengers. These “certified vessels” are inspected by the Coast Guard on a yearly basis. You can rest assured that our Charleston event vessels meet and exceed all USCG safety guidelines. If you decide to charter with another company please ask them for a copy of the vessel’s USCG Certificate of Inspection and charter insurance. If their vessel(s) is/are legal they will be able to easily produce a copy of both documents for your review.

PAYMENT AND CANCELLATION POLICY
AquaSafaris Inc. requires a 50% deposit to confirm your charter. We accept credit cards, traveler’s checks, cashiers checks and money orders. Balance due the day of your charter. Cash is always preferred for gratuity directly to the crew, but may always be added in the office, on your credit card, if preferred. Personal or company checks accepted for the balance payment only if received ten (10) days in advance of charter date. All deposits fully refundable if weather causes cancellation of your charter. Said cancellation is at the sole discretion of the Captain. The charter deposit is considered an earned fee, and IF YOU cancel the charter, no refund applies. If you reschedule within 12 months of your original charter date following a Captain weather cancellation, your deposit will apply to your new charter date.
