Wine Tasting

There is always more to discover about wine, and the talented staff of Dockery’s can come aboard to guide you on a incredible learning adventure.

This tasting option will allow you to learn more about your favorite region, vintner, grape, or style of wine. Try a series of Sauvignon Blancs or Vinho Verdes on a hot summer day, or try the wines of Burgundy or Napa if that’s more your flavor. You let us know what you would like, and we’ll bring it on board!

Nature Cruise

There is an abundance of natural beauty in and around Charleston, particularly as viewed from the deck of your chartered boat! See schools of fish and rays passing by the boat as well as schools of dolphins, sea turtles, herons, egrets, eagles, and so much more. This is a great option for groups with kids of all ages!

Charleston Water Taxi

Want to see some dolphins? Want to witness some historic sites from the water or see some of Charleston’s beautiful attractions? Catch the Charleston Water Taxi for all your transportation and sightseeing needs. The water taxi links Mt. Pleasant and historic Downtown Charleston. You can relax and enjoy views of the new Ravenel Bridge, while dolphins and pelicans feed alongside the boat. The water taxi runs on a continuous loop around Charleston Harbor between Patriots Point and Downtown Charleston from 9am to 8pm. Use it to get to downtown Charleston’s historic district, the South Carolina Aquarium, the USS Yorktown (aircraft carrier), or just for a relaxing, scenic taxi boat ride. You can get off the boat and take as long as you wish to tour any of the local attractions. The Taxi runs every hour so you catch any of our hourly boats back to your destination. We are also available for private charters!

Chip Deaton, Co-Owner & Captain

Captain Paul McNeely Deaton III, also known as Chip, always knew he wanted to work on Charleston harbor. Even as a young boy he wanted to spend all his time on a boat. After six years in the navy and then working for three water taxi companies in Charleston, he decided to take on the Charleston Water Taxi with Scott.  To Chip the best part about his job is meeting all the different people. “I love helping the locals and visitors plan their day in Charleston, while giving them a fun and safe experience on the water.” Chip lives in the West Ashley area of Charleston with his wife and sons.
