About the Schooner Pride

The Pride is an authentic 84-foot Tall Ship that sails in Charleston’s historic harbor. Harbor sails on the Pride last two hours and each 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, Fort Sumter, Fort Johnson and Fort Moultrie plus the beautiful Charleston Battery. It is an experience that is both relaxing and romantic, and it is awe-inspiring to see the wind and sails drive such a vessel. Guests are permitted to help with the sails or sit back and enjoy the ride. Sodas, bottled water, beer and wine are available for purchase on board. The Pride is USCG certified for 49 passengers and she is moored at the Aquarium Wharf, 360 Concord St. in downtown Charleston.
