Overview
Get out on the waters of Charleston Harbor during a 2-hour cruise aboard an 84-foot-tall (25-meter) classic tall ship. As the crew hoists the sails of the schooner, you'll glide past some of the city's historical sights and watch for dolphins in the water. Drinks are available for purchase on board. Select a departure time when booking.
What to Expect

Your cruise starts at Aquarium Wharf, where you'll board your genuine tall ship, powered only by Mother Nature and her incredible wind power. Once on board, watch the crew hoist the sails. Travel through waters that Blackbeard once anchored in, relax on deck, and imagine a time when the harbor was filled with these magnificent ships.

While this is not a narrated cruise, the incredible crew is happy to answer questions about some of Charleston's most historic landmarks that you will see, such as Patriots Point and the USS Yorktown, an Essex-class aircraft carrier that played an important role during World War II.

See beautiful homes that line the Battery and famous Fort Sumter, where the first shots of the Civil War were fired, and watch for pelicans performing diving acts. Don't forget about Charleston's own modern marvel with an up-close look at the impressive Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, one of the longest cable-stayed bridges in the western hemisphere. You're welcome to help raise and trim the sails, or you may sit back and enjoy the ride.

You may bring your own food on board, if you wish, but not drinks; beer, wine, and soft drinks are available for purchase on board at your own expense.

Party of 12 - Relaxing (& Expensive)

This was a sunset cruise in mid-July. I figured a few hundred dollars as I was picking up the tab, but when I had to pay a little sticker shock hit me big time. This is not Disney World--you are sitting on deck of a...More

I don't know if we were just unlucky, but this trip was an absolute joke. There was a lot of unhappy people on the AUG 5th, 3:30 PM tour and I wonder if any other reviewer will corroborate this as well. This was apparently supposed...More

Thank you for your feedback. We understand your complaint about the lack of seeing dolphins, which is of course, beyond our control. There is a large population in the harbor and we typically see quite a few on our sails. The Pride is intentionally not...More

SO VERY NICE

Ah, this was lovely! We had a beautiful day for sailing. The captain and crew were very friendly, the boat was clean. Peacefully quiet when the sails went up, except for people talking which is expected. Saw dolphins! Would like to try the sunset cruise...More

very peaceful experience and great way to relax

We got on the boat and set sail on a windy afternoon- we were worried about sea sickness, and getting wet..... not worries. The sailing was wonderful.... a very relaxing experience with the breeze..... the sails were set just right for a wonderful cruise.

Thank helloitsus
