Isle of Palms Things to Do – AquaSafaris Worldwide Charteryachts

The oceanfront location in the Isle of Palms makes the Palms Hotel a great place to stay if you are into watersports or just want to enjoy the ocean. The Isle of Palms has seven miles of white sandy beaches but the island is also surrounded by marsh creeks. With its waterfront location comes plenty of opportunities for water activities. The Palms Hotel offers the best Charleston area location to enjoy  fishing and crabbing in the Intracoastal Waterway’s creeks and marshes or action sports like power boat rentals and parasailing. One water activity to try are sails through a local company on the Isle of Palms called AquaSafaris Worldwide Charteryachts. This company is Charleston’s premier source for all types of boating adventures. They rent vessels for in-shore and deep sea fishing, offer sunset and dinner cruises, provide sailing trips and offer parasailing. In addition, there are power and sailing yachts that are available for rental.

The AquaSafaris has over 20 years of experience owning and operating vessels worldwide. Their Charleston vessel, the Pametto Breeze Catamaran, holds up to 100 guests and is available for private rent for corporate events or weddings and also provides public dolphin sails, pirate adventures, barrier island sunset sails and historic Charleston Harbor sails. Certified by the U.S. Coast Guard, Palmetto Breeze has 1,700 square feet of decking plus covered seating. Public sails come with complimentary bottled water and soft drinks and tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for children.

The public sails are a popular thing to do when staying in the Isle of Palms during the season. Keep in mind that the sails run from May until Labor Day. The pirate adventure is a great family-friendly activity. The adventure consists of a buccaneer expert called “Wild Will” who tells many tales of adventure. There is a special hidden treasure that is shared with the passengers but they have to find it first. The dolphin sunset sails are a nice thing to do when you want to relax and soak up the spectacular scenery. Passengers can get a unique view of Charleston sites like Fort Moultrie and Fort Sumter, Castle Pinckney, the USS Yorktown, the famous Rainbow Row and the Charleston city skyline. Other seasonal sails include wine tastings and various charity events.

No matter if you choose an adventure on the Palmetto Breeze through AquaSafaris, another water activity or simply want to relax on the ocean, you and your family are sure to enjoy the water while staying at our oceanfront Isle of Palms Hotel. Planning to stay this winter but still want to enjoy water activities? Contact us to find out all your options. Charleston has beautiful weather year-round so there will still be plenty of things to do in Charleston!
