What you'll do

The most popular time to sail is sunset which provides the perfect atmosphere to get away from the daily grind. Up to at total of six guests can kick back, relax and soak up the last remaining rays of sun or be as active in the sailing of Alliance as they wish. Depending on tides, currents and wind our three-hour harbor tour will take you down the Intercostal waterway off Sullivan’s Island, out to Fort Sumter, the Charleston Battery and waterfront, up to the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, Yorktown and Patriots Point. We will circle the entire harbor while you relax on the bow, amidships or cockpit and breath it all in. It is a rare occasion when we do not see a dolphin riding our bow wake or playing in the harbor waters around Alliance. If interested in learning the finer points of sailing, put yourself to work and find out what it is like to helm a boat and trim the sails. Instruction can be freely given and you can do as little or as much as you like. Regardless of your interest level, Alliance Sailing Charter exists for your enjoyment and we will do our utmost to make your sail a memorable one.
Other things to note
It is a good idea to think of a sailing charter as you would day at the beach. A towel, camera, sunscreen and hat, etc. are all important items. Passengers should wear soft-soled tennis shoes only.

Mark was a great captain and made us all feel very welcomed and comfortable. He’s also a great story teller, keeping things interesting, funny, and relaxed. It was an all around enjoyable time with him and his crew!

We spent great time sailing with Mark and Caroline! They were super friendly and told us a lot of interesting stories. Our kids were happy to discover the yacht and enjoyed as much as adults. We would definitely recommend this experience and we'll be happy to repeat one day!

This was the perfect way to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Mark and Caroline were as much fun as the sailing. I can’t wait to come back and do this with my kids.

Mark and Caroline were FANTASTIC hosts. The sail was beautiful, peaceful and fun. They were super accommodating and great story tellers. My family and I had an amazing time and it was the best part of our Charleston trip. They also took some amazing photos for us including a full boat photo from their friends boat. 100% recommend for friends or families travelling.
