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.

This is an excellent way to spend an evening in Charleston! It was so breezy and cool on our sunset cruise. The guides are great and it’s a very relaxed experience. They might even let you help pull the sails up.

An Unplanned Highlight

Following a last minute booking Captain Jenny and her crew gave us an evening to remember on this lovely boat. It has to be the best way of seeing the harbour and we had the added treat of watching yachts racing. A real highlight of...More

Sail at your own risk.

My wife and I went on the sunset cruise. Literally 500 yards from the dock the engine acted up so the Capt. Jenny raised the sails to complete the cruise as if this was the norm. Rather than return to the dock and risk having...More

This review is very misleading. The Schooner Pride absolutely pays the employees. Gratuities are never expected but appreciated for a job well done, which the crew did on this occasion. With any vessel, there are occasional mechanical issues that may arise, which are beyond our...More
