Hands down, the absolute best way to watch the sunset in the Charleston area! Even saw a few dolphins, while aboard the Schooner Pride. Overall cool boat, awesome crew, and priceless views!

I definitely recommend this as “a thing to do” in Charleston especially if you love sailboats. The crew was awesome and so was the cruise.

I was somewhat concerned about going at 3:00 due to the heat and humidity but I had nothing to worry about. The wind cooperated and it was very enjoyable and thoroughly relaxing. I have been in other cities on similar cruises that had padded cushions...More

As far as I know, they will still sail if there is rain. If there is bad weather, like lightning or bad storms, they will give you a credit for another sail at a other time.

Hi, thanks for the question. Each cruise is 2 hours. The time depends on the time of year.
