Owner description: 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!

I decided to surprise my husband with a ride on the Schooner Pride as he loves all things boating & sailing. He Loved it!! This was my first time on any kind of Sail boat so was really excited to see what it was all about. Now this isn't a tour boat the staff is very knowledgeable and more then... More

The Schooner is a replica of a 18th century tall ship. I booked on line, a 2 hour sailing, we only had 9 people, the Schooner probably holds 4 times that many; but the weather was cold. It was sunny and windy. Where you go depends on the breeze and the Captain. You could tell him what you wanted to... More

This was the second time I took out-of-town visitors on The Schooner Pride sunset cruise. They remarked how great it was. The boat is a replica of a trading ship. Don't be afraid to volunteer to help raise the sails; you do it together with a crew member, it is fun and easy. It was a chilly afternoon but we... More

I took the two hour sailing tour on a recent warm fall day. I was able to book it the night before the sail. This was one of the best parts of my recent vacation. It was so relaxing sailing around Charleston Harbor and being able to see the city from a different perspective. The crew was very patient answering... More

We had visitors to Charleston for the first time and took them on an afternoon Schooner Pride sail, something we had never done before. We took our own snacks and bought wine and beer on the boat. The schooner's two hour trip direction somewhat depends on the breeze, and the captain asking the passengers which way they would like to... More

it was a beautiful afternoon. Crew was very nice. We thought there would be more scenery. Drinks were very expensive. $20 for 2 beers and a soda. But recommended.

Took this lovely harbor tour aboard the beautiful Schooner Pride. It is extremely relaxing, with breathtaking views and lots of room to stretch out. Only drawback, if you see it that way, is there is no narration and the crew doesn't talk a lot. There is a charge for all drinks and snacks, so be prepared. All in all, a... More

I wish I would have known about the moonlight cruise, especially with a full moon the days we were in town! In any case, we took the afternoon cruise and it was a delightful sail on the three mast schooner. You don't hear a lot of silly chatter about this building or that pile of rocks, but if you have...

After a hectic time trying to fit in all the attractions this was a charming 2 hour sail across the bay. Good views of the properties in the harbour. The odd dolphin could be seen - lovely!

We did the sunset cruise. No sunset (cloudy) but the cruise was nice. Really enjoyed the sails and the process of putting up the sails/taking them down. We brought a picnic on board, which was really a nice option. They did have drinks on board but the selection was a little sad (I'm a wine snob, I admit it). This... More
