I had a horrible experience with this company and do not recommend them. I booked a boat a month in advance with a captain and they canceled our first booking and then canceled our second booking (replacement boat we didn’t want) not even 24 hours in advance after we drove hours to get to the beach for this special occasion.It sounded like they were making up excuses and they are completely unreliable. Horrible company! Look elsewhere.

Shady, shady people. I would be very careful when renting from this company and make them take the boat out of the water to check for damage before you rent from them.

I was excited to propose after a romantic picnic on the water but not it’s not happening with SeaQuest! I reached out via website and made a prior reservation weeks in advance, even followed up with a phone call and Gary tells me he only rents to boat owners. I’ve spent just about my whole life on the water, my father is a longshoreman, and i’m not some college kid looking to party on spring break. I offered to take a class and even obtain a boat license prior to coming and he still refused saying people can get a boat license online. I even ask about hiring captain for charter and he says “I’ve only got two and they’re booked that week”. I’m sure he didn’t even know or care to know the day I needed to reserve. So disappointed in this company for ruining my proposal plan, if you “only” rent to boat owners you need to advertise that!!!

We rented the 10 passenger hurricane for 6 hours for a bachelor party. I mainly spoke with Angele and she provided excellent service all the way through and was exceptionally kind. The boat was ready once we got there, and she gave very clear and thorough instructions on how to operate everything on the boat. She also provided great suggestions on where to go/what to avoid, along with a visual map to chart your path. We were worried about being in the sun too much but there was actually an awning set up on the boat that isn't shown in the pictures. They are also much more accommodating on cancellations (although we didn't need to) than other companies. I will absolutely rent from this company again next time I am in the area, they were a pleasure to work with.

We rented a 20ft Key West for 4 hours. We had a great time cruising the harbor and accompanying rivers. The SeaQuest owners described a suggested route to travel and provided both a map/chart and an onboard GPS. That said it was still a bit confusing once out on the open waterway. We were able to anchor off Drum Island and swim and explore a bit. We saw dolphins close to the boat a few times:) The Key West is a lightweight boat, rough water was a bit of a challenge! I’m an experienced boater, therefor maneuvering (docking, cruising, anchoring and gassing up) were no problem. Keep in mind you’ll have no assistance with these tasks once you leave Bristol Marina. This activity isn’t for the easily intimidated, but is great for those seeking a little adventure and wanting a different view of the city. Sunny day in Charleston? Rent a boat with SeaQuest!
