When you hear Murrells Inlet South Carolina, what do you think of? I would venture to guess that ‘seafood’ would be the overwhelming favorite, followed by ‘nightlife’. There are plenty of gorgeous golf courses located just south of Myrtle Beach as well as places to relax and enjoy everything the lowcounty has to offer. What about water activities? Sure, jet skiing and deep sea fishing is a blast, but how does a casual cruise through the marsh on a pedal boat with an ice cold drink in your hand sound? Hope aboard the East Coast BrewBoat!
History of the BrewBoat
In 2016, Charlie & Chrissy Mize came across an idea that they thought would fit right into the culture of Murrells Inlet. So they took that idea and ran with it! A few months later, the Goat (the name of their boat) was constructed and they rented a slip on the water behind Drunken Jack’s Restaurant & Lounge. VOILA! The East Coast BrewBoat was ready for business! Now, there was a lot more involved than that, but we will spare the details.
What is the BrewBoat?
Great question! The BrewBoat is the 9th cycleboat to take the water in the United States. The boat moves through the water from the pedaling of the passengers on board. Each seat is set up very much like a bicycle and as the faster you pedal, the faster the boat goes. A captain is on board to steer the boat through the Inlet and motivate you to pedal faster! Solar panels on the roof of the boat power the speakers (you choose the music), light the party LED’s for night cruises and charges the batteries for the electric motor.
That’s the boat part of it, now on to the brew! The East Coast BrewBoat in Murrells Inlet South Carolina allows passengers (who are 21 and older) to bring a six pack of beer or a bottle of wine on board with them to sip on as they cruise the Inlet. The BrewBoat provides coozies as well as coolers to keep your drinks cold.
Each cruise last about an hour an fifteen minutes. It’s actually the perfect amount of time because you do tend to get tired towards the end if you are pedaling the entire time. The boat actually accommodates up to 15 guests, with ten cycle stations. So not everybody has to pedal all of the time.
How To Book A Cruise
The East Coast BrewBoat runs from March to October (give or take a month) with cruises going out every 90 minutes daily from noon to 7:15pm. You can always view their available time slots here. The BrewBoat is PERFECT for a bachelor party, bachelorette party, family fun, office team building session or just a group of friends getting together to enjoy a drink on the water.
