The Schooner Pride is an authentic replica of the 18th century tall ships that once dotted the Charleston Harbor carrying supplies and passengers to and from the plantations. She is USCG certified for up to 49 passengers and is the only 3 mast tall ship that offers public sails in Charleston Harbor. You can sit back and enjoy the the views and gentle ocean breeze or get involved with trimming the sails. We are not a narrated tour, but are happy to answer questions and point out interesting landmarks! Daily afternoon and sunset sails are available March - Early November. Special group sails and private charters available year round!

A group of friends met for a girls weekend in Charleston. One of the highlights was to be a sunset sail. When we got to the boat, our name was not on the list. Waited till everyone else boarded, only to discover NO ROOM and someone screwed up the reservation. Phone folks were nice, eventually got us scheduled for an... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. However, this is not quite what happened. While we did make a mistake on your original reservation, I would just like to point out exactly what happened. You booked 10 spots on the sunset sail on April 21. We took the reservation and received payment, you then called back to... More

Needed a narrator to say where we were. Actually didn't even make it to fort Sumter. Couldn't hear captain point out dolphins. She helped a guest steer the boat. Okay trip but too much money

The deckhands were very good and very friendly, the captain not so much. It is a lovely way to spend time on Charleston Harbor and to enjoy the beautiful sunset!

We enjoy sailing & sunsets & have never sailed on a schooner. This was a birthday gift for the husband & he loved it. Sailing Charleston Harbor was a real treat & so relaxing. Excellent captain & crew. Only concern - should be able to bring own water.

tour the harbor area in a sailing ship. The ship is very modern and relatively comfortable. You're basically sailing around in circles in the harbor. The crew is courteous, capable and quick to explain landmarks, but don't confuse this with a narrated trip. Very gentle way to spend some time in the water. Water and light snack are provided onboard... More

My wife and I live in the Charleston area and decided we would do something we've never done. So, we took the sunset cruise on the Schooner Pride. What a wonderful way to relax and enjoy a quiet cruise in the harbor. Great staff and just an overall wonderful experience. Ron

We sailed for two hours in silence for $42. No dolphin, no pelican. They do have a small print disclaimer about not being able to guaramtee that there will be dolphin so they ahould probably advertise as a quiet sail and you might see a dolphin if youre lucky. Wasnt worth $40. And there should be a disclaimer saying if... More
