Osprey


If you are looking for something different for your corporate, family or group outing how about taking a spin aboard an old trawler style shrimp boat?

Live the days gone by as the Fishing Vessel Osprey glides along the waters of the Ashley, Wando and Cooper Rivers.

Watch the sunset over the marsh grass of the Edisto and Kiawah Rivers, or enjoy the sights of Charleston's waterfront after dark.

Crafted in 1960 by the legendary boat builder Gillikin out of Harker's Island, North Carolina, Ospery has a distinctive two story wheelhouse all the way aft and twin smoke stacks forward of the pilot house.

She is a solid, rugged boat with massive white oak ribs on 18-inch centers sheathed over with 2-inch-thick mahogany planking. Her deck was planked in juniper and she is powered by a pair of 350hp turbo-diesel Cummins engines fed by four 450-gallon fuel tanks, all plenty solid for the rigors of the shrimping trade.

Osprey offers a unique window to the past, and it is for that reason we are thrilled to offer our guests the chance to take a trip back in time.

Our rates begin at $500.00 per hour on the Charleston Harbor. Our crew is happy to provide beverage services, and our galley chefs offer a wide range of seafood and local dishes.

But the best part of Osprey is just being a part of the crew, so join us and your friends, co-workers and family.

Call us at 980-254-5572 anytime we'll make sure your event is unforgetable.
