Coastal Guides - Eco Tours/Cruises

5th Avenue
Mount Pleasant SC, United States

Coastal Guides offers exciting cruises and tours to take in all the beauty of the Charleston historic waters in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. If you don’t feel like fishing and want to spend your day out on the water, Captain Matt will guide you to the most attractive places in style and comfort.

Captain Matt’s beautiful 24-foot Pathfinder boat allows for up to six guests to move around the deck with ease. Built in 2005, this is one of the roomiest boats in the Pathfinder family. With plenty of style and built-in facilities, this boat is second to none. It comes powered by a 350 HP Yamaha engine and can cruise at a maximum speed of 50 knots with no other smell but the fresh river air. The vessel is rigged with the necessary safety equipment and navigational electronics, including all Garmin GPS and a VHF radio. A Minn Kota I-Pilot wireless trolling motor is fitted for a quiet ride.

Captain Matt designs each tour to exceed any customer’s expectations. Customer service and professionalism are his specialty. Coastal Guides offers a two-and-a-half-hour morning cruise, which is ideal for a group of friends, a family, or early birds. A sunset cruise is dolphins’ favorite trip and is perfect to explore the downtown area from the water.

Whether it’s a romantic cruise to watch the sunset over the waterways, a family gathering, an intimate date or just a relaxing time with friends and family watching the scenic Charleston waterfront, you will leave the deck full of lifelong memories.

Captain Matt will offer refreshing drinks and snacks for you and your party. Lunch can be arranged at an additional cost. The only things you need to bring with you are your smile and a camera!

Enjoy the stunning scenery of South Carolina while you sip on your favorite drink. Coastal Guide will take care of the rest.

About the Captain

Matt Swan
Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, United States
Member since February 2017
USCG licenced Captain and Officer with 30 years of fishing experience. I'm a full time charter captain here in Charleston, South Carolina. I have owned, operated and guided boats and charters all my life. I'm extremely focused, detailed, dedicated and driven to catch fish. Most importantly: be safe, have fun and catch fish! I have a keen sense for locating fish. The key is knowing where the fish are, the correct bait selection and presentation. I believe in superior quality boats, equipment, and tackle to ensure the fish that are hooked...stay hooked. These strategies have always delivered positive results and have also proven to provide an outstanding fishing experience. Fish hard, don't give up and give it all you got to get them on the boat!
