The Schooner Pride Sailing Tours

The Schooner Pride

Charleston is a bustling city that hosts a vibrant array of entertainment, historical sights and awe-inspiring architecture to explore. However, it may an exclusive trip out onto the surrounding coastal waters that allows visitors to truly experience the magic that is unique to this city. For those looking for a unique experience that blends the rich past of Charleston with its modern marvels, hop aboard the Schooner Pride.


A Ship that Stands Above the Rest

Hard to miss with masts that reach into the sky, the Schooner Pride is an authentic replica of the many trading vessels that once filled Charleston Harbor. Hosting up to 49 passengers at a time, a sail on the Schooner Pride is an unforgettable experience in the sailing techniques and wonders of yesterday combined with sights that speak to the modern transformations of Charleston.


Daily Sailing

Departing from its docking point at 360 Concord Street at the Aquarium Wharf, guests interested in participating in daily sails will enjoy 2-hours of uninterrupted time on the water. Each sail is a unique experience as the engines are cut and the massive sails catch the wind to lead the way. The quiet engines provide a perfect opportunity to enjoy the natural cadence of waves, wind, seagulls and even dolphins as guests glide through open waters. There’s no need to pack for this trip as wine, snacks, beer, water and soda are available for purchase onboard. Hats and sunscreen are also readily available for those who may have forgotten some of these essentials on land. Get to know Charleston Harbor in the most peaceful way possible when you book a tour on the Schooner Pride.


Customized Experiences at Sea

While daily tours provide a beautiful experience at sea, options to customize your sailing experience are also available. For a close look at the ocean’s most incredible marine life, book an afternoon dolphin sail and see these incredible creatures in their natural habitat. Sunset sails spotlight the pristine beauty of the harbor as the light fades away over the horizon. Those looking for a more romantic twist to their sailing adventures will want to book a moonlight sail and experience the magic of Charleston Harbor by night. The Schooner Pride can also successfully accommodate large groups and is an incredible venue for hosting at-sea events such as team-building gatherings, weddings or receptions.
