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!

What a wonderful time we had sailing with Brian today. A beautiful view of Charleston. We loved seeing the dolphins and had so much fun learning about sailing. We feel that this was a the highlight of our trip.

My husband and I visited Charleston for our anniversary, and I would say that this was truly a highlight of the trip. We booked a dolphin eco sail with Brian and really enjoyed our time. The catamaran was comfortable and we loved sitting on the trampoline up front. We saw some dolphins and got some amazing pictures of Charleston! I... More

This was our second sailing with Prevailing Winds, with a group of six friends. I will definitely book again. Great way to spend a few hours on the water in Charleston. Our captain Brian was fantastic!

My three girlfriends and I took a catamaran sail with Toby on a Saturday morning. The weather was looking like it could rain, but since we were in Charleston for only a few days we risked it and set off for our morning sail. Although it was overcast, it was very relaxing to be on the water. Toby also gave... More

My hubby and I took the sunset cruise with Toby. It just so happened that we were the only two people on the cruise that evening. The wind was awesome and the weather perfect for sailing. We saw several dolphin and pelicans. I would highly recommend this activity and would absolutely do it again if we return.

I booked this sunset harbor cruise because of all the great reviews--which were 100% accurate. This was the highlight of our vacation to Charleston. I loved the fact that the max number of people on the catamaran was six plus the captain, Brian. We completely lucked out and the other people rescheduled times so me and my boyfriend had a... More

My husband and I booked a Sunset Cruise with Brian. It was spectacular. The catamaran holds six passengers and the captain (Brian). There were two other coupples aboard. The marina was easy to walk to from the Francis Marion hotel, near the Aquarium. We sailed the harbor, saw dolphins, took tons of pictures of the beautiful historical homes along the... More

My fiance and I had a great time. We walked down (about a 10 minute walk) from the Francis Marion Hotel, stopping off at Ted's Butcher's Block to pick up sandwiches and wine. The weather was pretty hot, but it was very pleasant out on the water. Our outing lasted a bit longer than the advertised duration as a result... More
