Family vacations are all about creating unforgettable memories, and what better way to do so than by cruising around stunning Hilton Head Island on your own private yacht? 

At Hilton Head Yacht Charter, our family owned and operated business understands the importance of family time. We’re proud to offer the ultimate family-friendly yachting experience. Unlike other excursions in Hilton Head, Top Shelf Motor Yacht is completely private and custom, ensuring you and your family can cruise in comfort, go where you please, eat whatever you like, and make memories that you’ll never forget.

Join us as we explore why our private yacht is the best choice for families looking for adventure, relaxation, and bonding time.

Why Charter a Private Yacht?

Flexible Itineraries: Choose your own adventure! Whether you want to explore, enjoy beachside picnics, look for dolphins, try some watersports (or all of the above), you are not tied to any itinerary. Concierge Karen and Captain Edin will tailor your cruise to your exact desires. 

Privacy and Comfort: Enjoy the luxury of having the entire yacht to yourselves, ensuring a comfortable and intimate family experience. The yacht boasts four staterooms, four bathrooms, a large interior lounge, exterior sky lounge, aft deck and so much more.

Tailored Activities: From water sports to onboard games, activities can be customized to suit family members of all ages. From the newest additions to the family patriarchs and matriarchs, the yacht is a safe and comfortable vessel for all.

Personalized Menus: Our full-time Executive Chef will absolutely wow you. Even the pickiest of eaters will disembark satisfied thanks to a completely customized menu. From five-star gourmet dishes to “my toddler will only eat nuggets” there is nothing we cannot prepare for you. You let us know what you need aboard and it will be ready.

Speaking of toddlers, do you need a quiet place for nap time? Worry not, our cabins are peaceful places to enjoy an afternoon rest before your delicious dinner.


Family Activities to Enjoy

Water Sports: Engage in fun water activities like snorkeling, paddleboarding, and kayaking.

Beach Exploration: Discover the island’s pristine beaches, perfect for a family day out.

Wildlife Watching: Spot dolphins, sea turtles, and a variety of birds in their natural habitat.

Stargazing Nights: Experience the magic of the night sky like you’ve never seen it. Hilton Head Island is a low light density location, and even more so on the water. The stargazing is indescribable and we look forward to showcasing it for you.


Hear from families who’ve enjoyed their voyage with us:

“Our family had a once in a lifetime yachting experience ! The kindness by the staff was heartwarming , the conditions were exquisite and the hospitality was impeccable. This opportunity made our stay on the island memorable and we will cherish it a lifetime .” – Donna Clark

“Many wonderful memories were created on Top Shelf! We cannot say enough good things about our experience. The crew pampered us the entire time and made us feel like royalty. Every little detail was perfect….even down to the little baby 5 course meal, haha!” – The Davis Family

A 5 star review is inadequate and short sells the experience my family had here. There are not enough words in the dictionary to illustrate the brilliance this staff has put together. Each and everyone of them went beyond what we could’ve asked to make our day special and made us feel like family for the day. The Yacht itself, the food, the water toys, and the location we anchored at were all amazing and second to none but what sets Hilton Head Yacht Charter apart is the staff. Thank you very much from the DeBusk and Gibson family.
