What Floats Your Boat? The Salty Dog Cafe Happy Hour Music Cruise

Author: Special to CH2

The Salty Dog Happy Hour Music Cruise is not just your everyday happy hour. While most include your standard fare of food and discount drinks, this one steps it up a notch with live music & fresh hors d’oeurves on a floating bar that makes it the happiest hour on or off the island!

The journey starts aboard The Salty Dog, a 47-foot power catamaran, complete with both open and covered deck areas. The catamaran hull delivers a stable ride with plenty of room to walk around, or you can sit on benches that line the perimeter. Although the boat has a capacity of 48 passengers, the cruise is limited to the first 36 people ready to throw down $25 for an hour and a half of live music, complimentary hors d’oeurves and a boat ride around Calibogue Sound.

Chef Herb Britton of The Salty Dog, prepares a custom variety of fresh hors d’oeurves complete with cheeses, fruit and assorted Salty Dog samplings for every cruise. The bartender offers house wines, premium beers and special drinks that truly put the happy in happy hour. The house specialty is a Michelada, a refreshing blend of Corona and Britton’s homemade Bloody Mary mix. In addition to the beer and wine selection, the Dosarita is a popular alternative.

Another highlight of the Happy Hour Music Cruise is the live music from local artists, including Todd Cowart or Dave Kemmerly. Their tropical tunes are complemented by the sounds of the wind and water, creating a unique ambience that transcends reality to remind passengers how fortunate we are to live and vacation on Hilton Head Island. The cool breezes keep away the bugs and offer a tempting escape from the daily grind with some well-deserved adult time as The Salty Dog Happy Hour Cruise is limited to passengers ages 21 and over.

While there are plenty of choices for happy hour on Hilton Head Island, The Salty Dog Happy Hour Music Cruise is a unique alternative to the same ol’ thing. Book your reservation by calling (843) 671-7007 or visiting saltydog.com/cruise. Trips are limited and an updated schedule is published online weekly.
