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!

We throughly enjoyed our trip with Schooner Pride. The staff was friendly. The captain was confident and we felt safe sailing with her.

Had a great time on the boat. Took the sunset tour. It was cloudy, but it didn't matter. Your on a beautiful boat, sailing the Charleston harbor. The captain and crew were very knowledgable of the area, but you have to ask questions. It's not a narrated tour, but that's what we loved about it. Just relax and enjoy the... More

The sunset sail was just what my husband and I needed after a long day walking and shopping downtown. The cool breeze, beautiful night lights and the amazing people made this trip amazing.

We did the sunset cruise on the Schooner. It was a rather windy evening but the crew had everything well under control. They were friendly and helpful. Initially I thought the lack of any narration was a bit boring but once we got going it was nice to just relax and take it all in. It was a gorgeous sunset!... More

This was nice relaxing sail that allowed you to just sit back and enjoy the ride. It was peaceful and we did get to see a handful of dolphins. The crew was very personable and friendly. The only thing that I thought could be improved is that for the price of a ticket and being that all they do is... More

Initially, we intended on taking the dolphin cruise in the afternoon, but there was a private event scheduled. So we decided to spend the extra money and take the sunset cruise. What a great decision! The sail isn't scripted/narrated but that was a good thing. We were able to form our own impressions and enjoy the wind in our faces... More
