Our fleet of brand new boats are all captained by US Coast Guard licensed and insured Master Captains, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride. Whether you are looking for a sunset cruise, a family trip, water-sports excursions, a sightseeing tour, or just a fun day on the lake, we have the perfect rental option for you. With all-inclusive experiences, our carefully selected captains will provide you a unique and personalized experience and take the hassles out of boating for a seamless day on LKN!

We've had the honor of hosting NBC's Today show with Dylan Dreyer, North Carolina Weekend on PBS, MTV's Jersey Shore, Netflix's F1 Drive to Survive, NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers Mitch Trubisky, Charlotte FC, The United States Coast Guard Charlotte, Spectrum News 1 Charlotte, and most importantly hopefully you next! 

We make each boat cruise special and tailored to what you and your guests enjoy. Our boat charters never sell tickets, so you will never find yourself on a boat with other people you didn’t invite. We cater to all types of events and always provide you with a unique experience. We offer a variety of boat charters for all occasions, ranging from 2 to 6 hours. Whether you want to party and have fun, or just relax and take in the views of beautiful Lake Norman, Carolina Cruising Charters can make it happen.

To check our availability, click book now and select your location and desired boat or visit the boats tab and select your desired boat from the dropdown menu. Please note that availability is set to call to book 72 hours prior to bookings so we can ensure Captain availability. 


Our pricing doesn't change based on the passengers whether it's one passenger or up to the boat capacity. Here, you ultimately guide your experience by letting your captain know what makes for a great day with who you've invited onboard.

Amazing time with Carolina Cruising Charters. Captain Matt was on time, easy going and knew all the local spots on Lake Norman, making our bachelor party truly memorable. Captain Matt was very flexible on our itinerary and down for any activity we wanted to do; including lake beer-pong, water sports, lunch break, cruising around ...etc. He even brought a large cooler with ice and some water bottles for us to enjoy. The boat was very spacious, clean and had an impressive loud music system; the heart of any party. He even filmed us with his drone while we were playing beer-pong on the beach where we docked. Excellent service and amazing experience. Would recommend anyone to book a trip with Carolina Cruising Charters, regardless of occasion. Captain Matt and Carolina Cruising Charters will be sure to personalize any trip and fulfill any request to make your cruise memorable. You will not be disappointed.

Envision Your Experience!
