Sailing Tours on the "Mental Heeling"


Sailing is more than just wind hitting cloth – it’s a dream with no boundaries. Experience an activity that is over 3,000 years old and captures the awe and passion of so many people. You’ll see the landmarks and sights that you would on our harbor tour – the difference is being effortlessly taken along by the wind. Enjoy yourself and sit on the bow as the ocean breeze propels the boat through gentle rolling waves – or take the wheel and feel the currents running underneath the keel.

The "Mental Heeling" is a 1988 30ft Catalina MKII. This vessel can carry groups of up to 6 people and have ample cockpit and deck space for you to move around. Seating below includes a saloon (dining area) and a head (toilet). Sailing charters serve as an excellent introduction of the sailing lifestyle while delivering the exceptional tour experience found aboard the "Geechee Girl".  For frequently asked questions about our tours please see our FAQ’s page.

Motorized Tours on the "Geechee Girl"


Geechee Girl Tours offers privately chartered day and evening water excursions. The itinerary of every tour is tailored towards your interests; you’re the captain, we’re the guides. USCG Licensed 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. For frequently asked questions about our tours please see our FAQ’s page.

The motor yacht, "Geechee Girl", is a 21-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, Castle Pinckney and all other sights – much closer than any other commercial tour in the Charleston Harbor.

The tour lasts approximately 2-3 hours and meets either at Shem Creek (Geechee Girl) or The Harborage (Mental Heeling)  

Private harbor tours do not require the participant to be a swimmer.  Life jackets are available in case of emergency and provided upon request.
