Owner description: The Schooner Pride is an authentic replica of the 18th century tall ships that once dotted the Charleston Harbor carrying supplies and passengers to and from the plantations. She is USCG certified for up to 49 passengers and is the only 3 mast tall ship that offers public sails in Charleston Harbor. You can sit back and enjoy the the views and gentle ocean breeze or get involved with trimming the sails. We are not a narrated tour, but are happy to answer questions and point out interesting landmarks! Daily afternoon and sunset sails are available March - Early November. Special group sails and private charters available year round!

“Nice way to spend a few hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

We really enjoyed our evening cruise! The staff was courteous, knowledgable and helpful, the harbor was beautiful; so was the boat! There is not a definite course, as it depends on the currents and winds. I was fascinated watching the crew handle the lines and sails, and they made it look easy! I was hoping we'd sail a little faster, but I understand the safety concerns. All in all, I'd recommend this little outing any day.

“Relaxing, Beautiful Sunset Sail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

I live in Charleston and keep coming back for this wonderful sail. Whether you can sit back and enjoy the view or assist the crew, this is a treat that should not be missed. Beverages can be purchased, there is no better happy hour spot in Charleston!

We think about buying a boat, but as long as the Schooner Pride is around, we will continue sailing with Captain Sarah and her crew when we get the urge for a sailing trip!

Take layers no matter what the season - it can get chilly out there in the wind.

I can't wait to sail again soon on the Schooner Pride!

“Wonderful sail in the bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

The Pride is a 3 masted schooner, a great sight in full sail. We formed a motley crew but were far from mutiny as Captain Sarah and her crew looked after us so well. Had a great sail across the bay, a beer in hand, enjoying the sunshine, the dolphins and the pelicans. A real highlight of our trip to the US.

“Beautiful Sunset Tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

I bought the Living Social deal for the Sunset Tour and set it for 11/9/13. The staff was very helpful in getting us seated and informed about all of the things happening on the boat. Due to the fact that we decided to take the trip in November, it got a little chilly as we watched the sunset. The staff was very aware of this and offered everyone blankets to use. My boyfriend and I had a great time. It was gorgeous and we are definitely intersted in using this business again.
