Schooner Sunset Sail on Charleston Harbor

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Meet your crew at Aquarium Wharf near Concord Street and Calhoun Street in Charleston for your Charleston Harbor cruise experience. You'll be treated to the sunset from the vantage of a classic tall ship. See the sails hoisted and enjoy the calm waters for the evening as you pass by sites important to the American historical landscape.

    Powered only by Mother Nature's wind power, the boat is a great way to start a night out in Charleston. Relax on deck, and enjoy the scenery as the sun drops slowly toward the horizon, illuminating the countless steeples of the 'Holy City.' Even though this is not a narrated cruise, the crew is happy to answer questions and point out historical landmarks along this peaceful journey.

    This tour will give you a new perspective on the 18th- and 19th-century buildings of Charleston. After a leisurely 2-hour sail around the harbor, you will set foot on back land refreshed and relaxed.

    While the people were friendly and the views we're great, we were disappointed that we hardly sailed. The engine ran almost the entire time.

    There’s a huge parking deck right there. It was practically empty on the afternoon of our sail.
