This was the highlight of our weekend in Charleston. Captain Brian was very knowledgeable and made a great experience even more entertaining. I would highly recommend this. It was very peaceful and relaxing, with gorgeous views. We saw several dolphins close by as well. Great, great fun!

Captain Brian and the boat were awesome for a couples sunset cruise. The ride is BYOB and extremely enjoyable. You will not be disappointed with this experience!

Had a great time with Captain Brian on a private daytime charter. The boat is super comfortable. We covered a lot territory with Brian pointing out historical and interesting points along the way. It's the best way to see the harbor and very reasonably priced.

We had a great time with Brian on the sunset sail this weekend. We love seeing cities from the water and his catamaran sail was such a fun activity for the evening. Would definitely recommend to couples, families and anyone interested in a harbor cruise without the big crowds.

Sailing with Capt.Brian on a sunset harbor tour was both relaxing and informative. With a maximum capacity of six Prevailing Wind is a very comfortable vessel. Capt. Brian is an excellent sailor and very knowledgeable about Charleston history. Charleston Sailing Adventures provides a great value and is a much better choice than the larger (crowded) harbor tour vessels.

It was a very great experience, Ben was the tour guide and he was very knowledgeable of the area and a great sailor. I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting a different angle of the Charleston harbor. The pricing was very competitive.

I was traveling with my mother and did not want to take the big schooner with 60 other tourists and also wanted narration. I got my wish. It's nothing fancy and perfectly uncomplicated and a stunning ride. As far as I'm concerned it was one of the highlights of our first trip to Charleston. We took the SUNSET CRUISE with... More
