We would be delighted to host your event aboard the Schooner Pride and I would like to take this opportunity to better acquaint you with the vessel and all that we have to offer. Rated as one of the top ten things to do in Charleston on www.tripadvisor.com and by Southern Living magazine and as one of the best sunset cruises in North America by Coastal Living magazine, The Schooner Pride truly is an experience your guests will remember for a lifetime!

About the Schooner Pride

The Pride is an authentic 84-foot Tall Ship modeled after the 19th century coastal trading schooners that once dotted Charleston Harbor. Harbor sails last two hours and each cruise is its own adventure. With the engine off and the sails full, she quietly glides along as guests enjoy the natural sounds of dolphins, gulls, wind and water. On this scenic cruise you will take in the exquisite Charleston Harbor with the aircraft Carrier Yorktown, the four forts: Castle Pinckney, Ft. Sumter, Ft. Johnson and Ft. Moultrie plus the beautiful Battery. It is an experience that is relaxing, romantic and adventurous at the same time. It is awe-inspiring to see the wind and sails drive such a vessel. Guests are permitted to help with the sailing or just sit back and enjoy the ride. The PRIDE is USCG certified for 49 passengers and she is moored at the Aquarium Wharf, 360 Concord St. in downtown Charleston.
