My wife and I wanted to be on the water on a hot August day. Brian gave us that opportunity in laid-back style! His catamaran is swift and comfortable; we brought our favorite beverages and snacks and enjoyed the breezes and Charleston skyline. We'll be back!

I had a great experience; went with 2 of my friends and there were 3 other girls on the tour. Everyone got along great, and Brian, our sailing guide did a good job of describing the skyline and key sites. We only saw one dolphin breifly, but the sail was totally worth it. Thanks for a great experience :)

My two daughters, 11 and 13, and I sailed with Brian this week in Charleston. We took the Harbor tour. This was my daughters first sailing experience and it couldn't have been better. Brian is an excellent Captain and host! I highly recommend this exceptional experience. He provides a very professional tour yet so friendly and relaxed. The perfect sailing... More

My girlfriend and I took the dolphin tour with Brian today. We were supposed to be sharing the boat with another couple but they didn't show. Our luck! We were given extra time to go pick up more beers and were able to enjoy a leisurely private sale. Brian was incredibly professional and personable and we had a wonderful experience.... More

My 8 year old daughter and I live in Charleston and always plan an outing on the water each summer. Our sail on Prevailing Winds was perfect! We saw dolphin, pelicans and heard many interesting facts and stories from captain Brian :>>

We absolutely loved the sail with Brian. While we didn't see any dolphins, the time was so very relaxing. The afternoon was beautiful. The small group was perfect. I would recommend this sail cruise to anyone that comes to Charleston.

The sailboat is beautiful and the perfect size to have a group of friends or family enjoy a few hours on the water. We brought our own drinks and snacks on the boat; the captain (Brian) was excellent in spotting dolphins and made the whole trip relaxing and fun! This is a great local business that provides a fun and... More

My 2 daughters (24 & 28) and I went on the afternoon cruise of the Charleston harbor. Although it was suppose to be a dolphin cruise, which we did not see any (not Captain Brian's fault, he was at the mercy of the dolphins), we had a fun and informative time. Since the cruise is limited to 6 passengers, there... More

Brian is a great captain! He was punctual, professional and friendly. We had 6 women on the catamaran and we all fit comfortably. We brought food and drinks and had a wonderful time! The best part was seeing several dolphins!
