Houseboats

Book a houseboat in Charleston
Take command of your next vacation…by taking the helm of a houseboat! Why debate over whether to stay home or go to the coast? A Charleston houseboat rental lets you do both. It’s especially ideal if you’re traveling with a bunch of people, whether it’s family or friends, because it blends all the comfort of a “staycation” at home with adventure on the high seas. When you book through Orbitz, you’ll have everything you need to captain your new vacation home.

Charleston houseboat vacations for everyone
Gather everyone you know, because most houseboats can sleep over 10 people while maintaining a cozy, small-house feel—without feeling cramped. There are showers and kitchens on almost every house boat, and some vessels come with hot tubs, wet bars and multiple TVs. Take your houseboat out to a particular spot in the water, or kick off a proper Charleston adventure and travel from port to port. Your on-board crew will be so impressed with this unique vacation, they’ll probably start calling you “Skipper.” 

They’ll be even more impressed with the luxury house boats that are available. Think stunning décor, gorgeous artwork and even fireplaces for cool evenings on the water. Some even have glass bottoms so you can look right into the water beneath you.

When you want to give your sea legs a break, come ashore and do some sightseeing in Charleston. Snap up a meal at one of the local restaurants, or do a little grocery shopping so you can cook once you’re back on the water. And don’t forget to look into fishing permits—there’s nothing like cooking up fresh-caught fish to really complete your houseboat experience.
