Description: The Schooner Pride is an authentic replica of the 18th century tall ships...
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!

We took the 4pm tour and it was wonderful. You leave the dock and as soon as the boat is away from the dock they cut the motor and set the sails. 2 hours of peaceful sailing - they offer drinks & snacks but it is all about the peaceful sail.

Easy to book online, great family fun for all, beautiful scenery, great crew! What more could you ask for! We were on the afternoon dolphin cruise. Loved our crew (Sarah was our captain). They were nice and engaging with out being overbearing with info. It was a peaceful sail with plenty of time to relax and take pictures too! We... More

What a great evening!!! Saved the Charleston Harbor on a beautiful schooner sail boat. Fun for a couple or with a bunch of friends... We were both!!! The crew was awesome. I highly recommended.

Great tour of Charleston Harbor. Weather cooperated and got some terrific sunset photos of St. Michael's and Charleston. Add a glass of champagne and a pleasant crew and you couldn't ask for a better time. It was the perfect way to end our vacation!

Great crew...started out as a nice peaceful ship ride to watch the sunset with very little chatter from the crew. A storm came up quickly and we had to return to the port.....which turned out to be s wise move on the part of Caotain Jen. Since we were out less than 45 minutes, our money was returned, no hassle,... More

Nice relaxing sailing tour in the harbor. Knowledgeable crew, but not a narrated tour. We were able to see many dolphins in the harbor. It was very hot without much relief from the sun on our 4 PM ride. 2 hours. Beverages available to buy.

We did the sunset cruise and it was great. The boat can carry up to 49 passengers. We had less than that and it was very comfortable and very clean. The staff served drinks and snacks for a small charge. The service was exceptional and they were a very capable and friendly crew. We will return for this in the... More
