I'm a local and my friends are from out of town, and I love to show off the beautiful historical Charleston, and this was such an excellent way to do it! We sailed around the harbor and were encouraged to bring snacks and adult beverages if we wanted to. It was like hanging out on a good friends boat, who... More

Spent a couple of hours on a lovely afternoon sailing with Captain Brian on Prevailing Winds. It was very relaxing and a great way to take a break from my schedule.

Sailing on Prevailing Winds is always my favorite part of any trip to Charleston. You can't find a better captain or a more perfect atmosphere. Every detail has been expertly planned so you can simply relax and enjoy the ride.

My roommates & I are new to Charleston & decided to invest in a sailing trip! The experience was absolutely breath taking. We learned about the history of Charleston, a little bit about the marine life, & even got a brief lesson in sailing! We saw dolphins & saw the sun set over the water. It could not have been... More

My friends and I are downtown Charlestonians that were looking for a great way to spend a Wednesday afternoon. Brian was both affordable and courteous. The boat itself made for a great intimate harbor sail as the captain pointed out points of interest along the coastline and pretty much let us decide what parts of the harbor we wanted to... More

Great sail with a wonderful captain! You can bring your own beverages and there is even a cooler on board if you didn't bring one! We sailed all around the harbor and the captain was very knowledgable of the harbor and was happy to answer questions or just let you enjoy the sail. Highly recommend!!!

I'm not a very outdoorsy type, but I had a blast sailing on Prevailing Winds. Brian made me feel comfortable from the start, was welcoming, and made the trip special. Don't miss this!

My husband and I were looking for something different to do in Charleston, our favorite city. This was perfect! We signed up for the Sunset Sail, and we were lucky enough to be the only ones on the boat (though to be honest, four other people still would have been fun). The captain gave us a lovely tour and some... More

Capping off a wonderful weekend away, my husband and I are so glad we decided to add this adventure on to our weekend! We went on the sunset sail at 5:30-7 and it was easily the best part of our weekend. Captain Brian was very skilled and took pity on us first timers by showing us the ropes, literally! Very... More

This was the best sailing trip yet. We were right down on the water and the Dolphins were 3 feet away while we were just lying on the trampoline surface staring up at the clear blue sky. My wife said this was the best thing I could have done for her, only the sound of the wind, waves and the... More
