Geechee Girl Tours offers privately chartered day and evening water excursions. The itinerary of every tour is tailored towards your interests as Captain Jay Keeney has years of water experience as well as local Charleston knowledge. You can relax and enjoy yourself as we guide you along the Battery, up the Wando River or out into the ocean all while supplying you with facts and historical knowledge. Every tour is a custom order; the experience can be as interactive or as quiet and private as you choose.
Our motor yacht, Geechee Girl, is a twenty-one foot African River Queen style boat that is ideal for sightseeing in comfort. Her design provides stability and is optimum for exploring shallow and narrow areas. This enables us to bring you closer to spectacular Low-country wildlife, the Battery, Fort Sumter, and all other sights – much closer than any other commercial tour in the Charleston Harbor. Captain Jay Keeney has always enjoyed being on the water. As a child, he imagined living aboard a sailboat and exploring the seas decades before he ever set foot on a sailboat. In college, he bought a kayak (prior to ever kayaking) knowing he would enjoy it as it brought together two of his passions; boating and the outdoors. Captain Jay now holds an Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel (OUPV 6-PACK) license with the United States Coast Guard.
Geechee Girl charters would be flattered and pleased to be a part of your wedding itinerary. The Geechee Girl has a maximum capacity of 6 and provides an intimate setting for the bride and groom and/or their guests. Her shallow draft allows her to dock and navigate in many places most others simply cannot – a perfect capability if your wedding location is on the water almost anywhere in Charleston.
