  • The Carolina Girl Yacht offered an incredible venue for our wedding!! All of our guests enjoyed the tour around beautiful Charleston while enjoying great music and good company. I loved that I could keep decorations simple and elegant because the boat was already so nice. The Captain and DJ were both very personable and the crew members were very helpful and nice. The only things that kept them from receiving a full 5/5 was 1. The three hour time slot was nowhere near long enough, but the fourth hour was so expensive for them to just stay at the dock during that period, and 2. The "event planner" that's included on the price only ordered linens and provided a preferred vendors list for all other needs that I was responsible for scheduling. All in all though, the yacht gave me an incredible night that I'm proud to say I used for my special day and many amazing memories to look back on.

    Thank you so much for the kind words and for allowing us to host your wedding and reception! Our in-house planner does a lot of behind the scenes work to prepare for each event. Although as stated in our literature we do not provide a full service planner, she is available for unlimited phone, email and in person consultation, meets with any vendors who need to see the venue, confirms details and delivery times with each vendor, puts together a site layout, orders linens, runs the ceremony rehearsal, constructs a detailed timeline for the ceremony and reception and meets with the event director who will oversee everything the day of the event. There are a lot of unseen details and coordination that go into making an event pull together so everyone knows their place. We are here to ensure that happens with each and every event on board The Carolina Girl so your event will be flawless!

  • For a venue that is anything but traditional, I would recommend The Carolina Girl in a heart beat! I grew up boating, so this was a great fit for our wedding! Camille was helpful, to the point, and reassuring through the entire process. Ashley was a dream--the day of the wedding went very smoothly with her as my right hand (wo)man! 70% of my guests were out of town--what a great way to showcase Charleston than on a boat! Captain Bob is smart in the way that he has hired these lovely ladies to be the face of the Carolina Girl because his personality can be a bit harsh at times. He's a great guy to talk to, but forget talking about business with him because you'll get scared off right away--avoid him if you're a delicate flower :) They made my day a complete delight and I will never be able to thank them enough! Everything went lovely and everyone had a marvelous time! You can't get a better view of Charleston than from the Carolina Girl The DJ on board is an option for you.... Read more

    Thank you for your review. We always appreciate positive and negative feedback as it helps us tremendously in executing successful future events. I am sincerely sorry you felt our music coordinator/DJ let you down in the execution of your music. In the 38 years Murray Marine has been in business, we have found that music is such an added value to any event and therefore we take into high regard who we hire to oversee this aspect. Our current music coordinator has 30 plus years experience in working events and in recording studios. Rather than dispute all of the above negative comments, I invite you to read the other positive reviews we have received not only on this website, but on www.carolinagirlevents.com. Please see the page full of testimonials regarding events as a whole as well our music coordinator.

  • We were recently married on the Carolina Girl. We had such a positive experience and everyone loved it. The staff made everything so easy from the planning to the actual ceremony. We had babies, children, adults, and senior citizens and the venue was perfect for all. (I do recommend taking a baby sitter or two as we did!)

  • My daughter in law had her ceremony and reception on The Carolina Girl and I must say that it could not have been a more beautiful event. The weather was glorious and the Captain situated the boat in front of the most amazing sunset. Captain Bob officiated which lent such a relaxed atmosphere to the ceremony. He was able to ease the nervousness of the couple as well as involve all of the guests so it was the most intimate and lovely ceremony I have ever witnessed. Camille worked with my daughter in law for 12 months walking her through every step of the planning process. She and her team were available at all times for consultation or meetings and were there the night of the wedding to ensure all went well. And it did! The sound system was top notch and DJ Bobby not only played everything my daughter in law requested but he really knew how to incorporate music that got all of the guests involved. Everyone, from the kids to the grandparents, was dancing up a storm on the dance... Read more

  • Our son' s wedding reception took place on The Carolina Girl on a beautiful evening Labor Day weekend. My daughter-in-law who is very "Type A" had done most of the planning from Hawaii where my son is an officer in the Navy. Capn Bob and Camille went over and beyond to accommodate many of her special requests for the reception to ensure not only she and my son were happy but by doing so provided a venue that without a doubt wowed all that were in attendance!!! Capn Bob's good natured humor and great wit was a godsend in breaking the ice that sometimes is felt between 2 families that don't know each other. His knowledge of the Charleston waters and professionalism in the wheelhouse certainly made this mother of the groom feel safe for all the guests onboard! There was a small communication hiccup about the serving of champagne in which Ashley jumped right in and made everything right before the bride ever had a chance to grimace...she's awesome and ensures everything runs like clockwork...

  • I had my rehearsal dinner on the Carolina Girl and I will say it was one the best nights Ive ever had! Many memories made on that boat! Captain Bob, Camille and the staff were exceptional! The boat is so nice, clean and roomy. The upper deck is great for a beautiful view while your riding around the Charleston Harbor. I highly recommend the Carolina Girl to anyone for any event. You will be guaranteed a great time :)

  • I can't say enough about the quality of our event. This was a destination wedding and it went off without a hitch. We had "iffy" weather but then the sun came out, it was beautiful for the sunset marriage (complete with dolphins). The Captain provided us with a beautiful backdrop for the pictures and the events moved seamlessly through out the evening. The bartender was wonderful, courtesy and interactive.The music list we provided and embellished by the DJ was an event in itself mentioned by numerous attendees. It was easy to use by providing a list of your music choices and it's a done deal. I've been to other weddings where the DJ is out of sync with the guest but not on the Carolina Girl, it was tremendous everyone danced and laughed and celebrated the occasion. All the guests still tell me it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to.

  • The Carolina Girl was the perfect venue for our wedding. We've been married for two years now and people are still talking about how great it was and how they all want to do it again! We had a wonderful experience and wouldn't have changed a thing. The staff of the Carolina Girl was incredibly helpful and couldn't dream of doing anything differently. It's an incredible experience and not many people can say they have gotten married on a boat. One day we hope to rent the Carolina Girl for a big anniversary party!
