I had tired of being a tourist and we did this on a whim after watching a cargo ship dock. We saw the docked schooner and called the number (ticket office was closed). I was able to buy tickets on-line and just needed the confirmation number and we were set--the on-line person had full details. Sailing in the evening with no one giving canned speech seemed like a good way to end the day. This is not a narrated attraction--it's sailing in the evening (though there appeared to be other time choices). There is a bathroom, but suggest that you come prepared not to need it--it's a typical sailboat head. No drinks may be brought on board--they sell soft drinks, water, beer, wine. You can bring snacks. Crew will answer questions and were fun when they weren't working sails. It's about a 2 hour sail on top side of schooner (so no "stadium/bench" seats). They said ship holds up to 50 people; there were probably 25-30 when we went, but it didn't seem like very many people as we were spread out. I don't know if there is an age limit, but unless you have some experience sailing, I wouldn't think this would be something for children under age 10. At first it seemed a bit pricey, but after I figured how much I'd spent doing other things in Charleston, this was a better value for me. Very quiet and relaxing way to end a hectic Charleston day.
