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! « less

Had a great sunset sail in the Charleston Harbor on the Schooner Pride. This was the end of a busy sightseeing day in Charleston. It was just the thing we needed to relax and see the Charleston from the harbor.

This is not a good sight-seeing trip, but it IS a wonderful experience to sail on a nice size vessel enjoying the water, breeze, and view the general area of the Charleston Harbor. You are too far away from most landmark areas to really get a good look at them, so this trip for me was just to sit back... More

We took the 1pm sail on a Sunday the 20 of July. Boy, this was a great time to do it as there were only 12 of us (plus 3 crew members). They say right up front this is NOT a narrated tour-& that was fine with us. They also don't have a set itinerary-it sails where the wind &... More

We had to reschedule our trip from a previous visit to Charleston, but it proved to be worth it! The crew members were wonderful and answered any questions asked. Do not expect a narrated tour, but do enjoy a nice relaxing sunset!

We took a sunset cruise on the Schooner Pride and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. The captain and her crew were very professional and personable. They patiently fielded every question we asked about the boat, sailing terminology and the landmarks we saw around the harbor. It is not a tour, because the wind dictates where and how far you can...

Pleasant and very easy to do-- just purchase tickets online, get to the harbor site (we took a taxi from our hotel) walk down a sidewalk to the schooner, and the mates check you in. It really took just a minute to board the boat. Once on the boat, there's not a lot of walking around, just find a comfortable... More

Of course it is easier to have an enjoyable ride on a schooner when there are good winds, which is what we had. But we had a very enjoyable and relaxing cruise, one of the definitive highlights of our vacation. The crew was very nice and accommodating. But more importantly, The Pride was terrific. It was very relaxing and worth... More

This was a great relaxing time. We chose to take the 4pm-6pm tour in hopes that it wouldn't be as hot. It was warm, but not like it was earlier in the day. We went on 7/2/2014, so whomever the captain and her two crewmates were-Great Job! I forget their names. There were 13 guests on the boat-nice as well,... More

Been coming to Charleston for years and have done many tours. This was truely one of the best. The crew was amazing. It is a sail boat so conditions often dictate the trip. Found it very relaxing.

Pretty awesome I think to just go online and for a very modest cost book an outing on a four-masted schooner! My guests from out-of-town said it was their favorite thing about their visit. It was a sunset cruise on Father's Day. We brought a picnic, beer and wine were served promptly. The crew was nice but not in your... More
