Ondeck is all about CHARTERING. With a fleet of 12-15 cruising and racing sailboats, Ondeck provides BOTH bareboat and skippered charters to both sailors and non-sailors who want to enjoy sailing Charleston’s beautiful local waters. Ondeck’s Licensed Captains let you sail the boat if you like or just sit back and relax and let your Captain show you how awesome sailing can be. Charters can be as short as a half-day sail, a beautiful sunset sail, or as long as your schedule/vacation allows.
Ondeck is all about HOSPITALITY (real southern hospitality). Companies throughout the Southeast use the Ondeck fleet for Corporate Hospitality and Teambuilding Events year around. When it comes to Teambuilding, learning to sail is the ultimate vehicle to teach communication and teamwork. At a corporate Ondeck regatta, sailors have to work together as a team to get the boat moving in the right direction. Groups as small as 6 to as large as 100 can ALL benefit from the teambuilding experience at Ondeck. Other corporate hospitality events include Catered Dinner Cruises, Sunset Sails, and Multi-Boat Charter Excursions highlighting the beauty and history of the Charleston area while entertaining your guests.
