The ride was very relaxing & fun! The mates were all very friendly & accommodated our group of 8 easily! The wine was great & the blankets provided kept us warm as the sun went down. Would definitely go again or recommend to anyone!

Crew lacked even a basic level of social or customer skills compared to all of the other activities we selected while in Charleston. Boat was overcrowded and included zero information on the city.More

This was a very relaxing low key sail. It was beautiful weather but not a lot of wind. There is no narrative, just viewing and enjoying the company of who you go with or meet on board. We met a few nice people and shared...More

Though cool and cloudy until the sun came out, the Pride was a wonderful evening of fun! The staff is great; very personable. Remember that cruising on the water is always cool, so even if it is supposed to be warm, a windbreaker will keep...More

We were very disappointed with this schooner trip. It was a beautiful fall day in the Charleston Harbor. The schooner merely took us on a ride in the harbor. There was no description of the surrounding sites or historical venues. We expected to skim the...More
