Prevailing Winds catamaran sailing tours are amazing and comfortable for the entire family. Sailing is as close as it gets to nature with dolphins, pelicans, and fish easily enjoyed as you comfortably sail by beautiful sights of Charleston and the harbor. The catamaran vs. a regular sailboat is much more stable, without the listing to one side or another so... More

We just moved to Charleston temporarily and had this on our list to do. We really enjoyed Brian and all the information he shared with us about Charleston. We were the only ones on the excursion which was fine. It was on November 8th so not as many tourists around and a little cooler on the water. We really enjoyed... More

First time my wife, her niece, and I have been on a boat touring the Charleston Harbor and the experience couldn't have been more enjoyable. Captain Brian was able to speak of the history and sights of Charleston, plus we had lovely sailing weather which made this small catamaran ride very relaxing and enjoyable. The 90 minute cruise is just... More

Captain is super knowledgeable with the history of the city and the nature of the winds. His boat is the perfect size for a good ride! I liked the length of the trip too! Some charters in this city seem to be too long. I grew up here- so I've been on many. I'm just not sure there is anything... More

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...

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!!!
