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!

The weather was perfect that day. Good sailing. The crew could be a bit more interactive. The captain was all business. If asked a question the two crew men would answer and they were knowledgeable...however...if you did not specifically ask....they did not interact.

We enjoyed our cruise aboard the Schooner Pride. The captain and two crew members were wonderful, they motored us out and asked for passenger volunteers to help raise the sails. We enjoyed wine, conversation and a fabulous view of historic Charleston. Definitely recommend this as a unique Charleston experience.

Thank you for sailing with us aboard the Schooner Pride. We appreciate you sailing with us and your feedback. I am not sure why you were expecting and informative cruise. It communicated at booking and before the cruise by our captain that this is not a narrated cruise. We are certainly happy to answer questions, point out landmarks and dolphins,... More

We took the sunset tour with the captain and two crew. We motored out and then the passengers helped set the sails. It was a beautiful cruise that was relaxing especially after a long day of playing tourist. The breeze on the water and cocktails served made it a perfect ending to a great day.

We booked the sunset cruise with Schooner Pride and had a lovely and relaxing sail in Charleston Harbor with a wonderful view of the City skyline. The crew was attentive (never had to wait more than a moment for them to replenish our drinks), easy to visit with, and professional all around. I highly recommend experiencing Charleston from the water... More

Great ship, crew and sights! We had mostly couples on our trip, but also solo travelers and a young family, and everyone had a great time. Highly recommended.

We did the 8:30-10pm Ghost ride on Oct 30th. I feel cheated out of my money, and so does everyone in my family. I can't believe this company would let someone from Bulldog Ghost Tours represent them during this ride in the manner that she did. The stories were absolutely bogus. The woman sounded like she smoked 10 packs of... More

Thank you for taking the tour on the Schooner Pride and for taking the time write a review. We would like to point out that validity of these stories is obviously a subjective matter and we have received rave reviews from this particular guide as well as all guides from Bulldog Tours. They are a great partner and have some... More

Narrator was terrible. Not worth the time or money. Stories were stupid. Nothing mentioned about pirates which is described in the ad. Couldn't follow her stories. Didn't make a lot of sense. Sailed on October 30 for halloween

The Schooner Pride experience was outstanding! The captain and crew were top notch and we couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable afternoon. I would recommend this to anyone who would like a nice enjoyable and relaxing couple of hours.
