Had a wonderful trip out to Morris Island to start the 4th of July holiday weekend. My son loves to collect seashells and this trip did not disappoint. Captain Brian was a wonderful host and is very knowledgeable about the history of Charleston. The fact that the boat can only carry 6 is a huge plus-it's a nice, intimate way... More

Tip: Make sure to bring cups for your BYOB beverages; there is a cooler with ice though We did see a lot of dolphins, so that is a real possibility! Charleston has beautiful sunsets, and the hour and a half was a perfect amount of time to do a wide loop outside the southern tip of the city. Good value,... More

My wife and I loved our sunset sail! So cool to see the gorgeous city from the water. A really unique perspective. Was super smooth and relaxing. Didn't have to worry about getting wet or anything. Captain Ryan just cruised the harbor while we relaxed drinking wine & eating snacks we'd brought along. Took turns sitting in cabin area and... More

Even with little wind we had a blast! Brian's knowledge of the area added immensely to our experience and we're looking forward to being customers in the future.

I look forward to many more sailings with Prevailing Winds. My husband and I experienced a breathtaking sunset aboard Prevailing winds sailboat. What a great tour Captain Brian gave. He does his best to make his guests feel at home on the waters of Charleston, SC. The Pelicans, The dolphins, and seagulls kept us in great company as well. What... More

We sailed with Brian on 6-5-15 to celebrate my sisters birthday. We had a great time. Brian is knowledgeably about the area and provides input without taking over the conversation. We would definately book this tour again~

I took my 11 year old son out and we had a blast. Captain Brian knows his stuff and the area. We had a great day to sail the Cooper River. We saw several dolphins peeking up out of the water. Would recommend for anyone that wants a peaceful ride and view from the water to shore.
