Chartering on Lake Norman
When you come aboard the Carolina Tiki we always try our best to make your day as memorable as possible. Being a family owned business is a large part of our business model and we strive to give all of our guests the same treatment that we would our own family. Every charter on our 41 foot pontoon boat comes with a U.S. Coast Guard licensed master captain and a first mate who will make sure you can sit back, relax and a have a stress free day on the water. Whether you want to take your kids out for an awesome day full of water sports and sun, invite some old friends out for a day full of drinking or watch the horizon as the sun starts to disappear over the beautiful Lake Norman water our captained charters will be able to accommodate you.
Our 41 foot pontoon boat has had a lot of experience on the Lake Norman waters. The Carolina Tiki was originally the old dinner boat from a restaurant on the shoreline of Lake Norman called the Blue Parrot. After sitting unused for almost two decades, we purchased the vessel and got to work resurrecting the old dinosaur to be able to do charters on Lake Norman. After almost a year in the making, we had completely tore down and rebuilt the boat to accommodate groups looking to enjoy a more relaxed vibe on the water.
Our charters consist of 4, 6 and 8 hour time slots, which allows you to really make the most out of your time on the boat. Whether you're a local in the area just looking for something to do for the day, celebrating a birthday or throwing a bachelorette party, our captain and first mate will go above and beyond to give you the best day possible and make the charter tailored to you and your group.

Tip for the captain and mate
Raved about by locals and tourists alike!
Our family had an amazing day on the lake with Captain Chris and Austin. From the start, the service was amazing with them helping us get our items down the dock and onto the boat. The boat is so clean and nice! Chris and Austin were so good with both the adults (tossing us fresh drinks when we were in the water) and the 4 kids under 5 that we had (from getting out fun water toys to swinging a little one to sleep in a hammock). They grilled our burgers and hotdogs we brought for lunch… even toasted our buns! We already plan to be return customers, and I cannot say anything but good things about the boat and crew! Thanks again for a memorable family day!
We had a group of ladies on a Workcation trip in the Lake Norman, Denver area this past week! We wanted to do something on the water and thought that a sunset cruise would be the perfect thing!
I reached out to Carolina Tiki and they were so accommodating and easy to communicate with. The captain picked us up on our house dock and off we went! They provided everything that we could have needed. The captains were so sweet and explained everything we could possibly need to know. There is even a bathroom on the boat!
This was such an amazing experience! Like a party on a boat with an incredible sunset! Highly highly recommend!
A++ experience! Chris & Austin do a perfect job of making sure you’re having an absolute blast, while at the same time being extra safe. The boat has everything you need: a grill, coolers, tons of floats for the water & ocean toys, an aux cord, plus more. Chris & Austin will always make sure your drink & stomach is full, engage in the party with y’all, or just sit back and let y’all enjoy. Cant wait to get back on asap!
