About Us

Crystal Coast Boat Charters and Rentals was established to offer visitors to the Crystal Coast the chance to be a local for a day.  During a full-service charter or rental, we strive to ensure that visitors to the area enjoy a fun-filled day on the water, visiting islands and playing in the water.  

Our eco-tours offer the perfect opportunity to explore and learn about the local coastal habitat. Or jump aboard to spend a day casting your line and bringing home dinner.  

Our local captains have a wealth of knowledge about the local waters and ensure that you, your family, and your friends are safe while enjoying all there is to offer on the Intracoastal Waterway.  

We can help you create a custom tour or plan a special celebration. The possibilities are endless!

At Crystal Coast Boat Charters and Rentals, we strive to provide our customers with a hassle free day on the water.  We are committed to providing guests with unique experiences that are unparalleled to any other boat charter or rental company.  All custom tours include gas, and use of equipment such as beach chairs, umbrellas, and sand toys so that you can spend the day making memories with family and friends.   Even food and drinks can be ordered from local restaurants and waiting for you at the launch site. All you need to bring is a desire for fun in the sun.

Rentals can spend the day cruising the waters of the Intracoastal Waterway and Bogue Sound from Channel Marker 27 to Hammock’s Beach area.  We ask that you stay within marked channels.  There are great beaches to find sharks’ teeth, sand dollars, and shells around Marker 45.  A chart of the area can be found here.

We have boats ranging from 18 to 24 feet to accommodate most parties.  The maximum crew allowed is 12 passengers.  The largest boat will hold up to 12 passengers with a combination of adults and children under the age of 12. 

Per USCG regulations, only parties of six or fewer passengers can have a Captain. 

There is no reservation fee.  We get your credit card number to hold the reservation but do not charge anything to it until we meet at the dock.

If we need to cancel because of weather conditions, there is no fee.  We will try to move you to another day.  If you cancel within 24 hours of a rental, you will be charged full price unless we can book the boat with another party (we haven’t had to charge anyone yet!).
