Board the Schooner Pride for an adventurous dolphin tour through the Charleston Harbor on the Dolphin Cruise.

On this two-hour cruise aboard the Pride, you will pass some of Charleston Harbor's most historic sites and beautiful landscapes as you look for playful dolphins bouncing splashing on the waves. On this adventure, you can help the crew raise and trim the sails or just relax for a peaceful ride. Although the tour will make no stops, you do have the opportunity to take in many fantastic sights as you pass through the harbor, including places like Patriots Point, Fort Sumter, and Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. While there is no set route, these sights and more will be available to you as you scan the surface for signs of aquatic life like dolphins and fish or search the skies for pelicans and other birds.

Although dolphin-sighting is not guaranteed, most tours do spot dolphins and/or other aquatic life, and Charleston Harbor is filled with wildlife, beneath and above. Fun and friendly, dolphins are often found playing on the surface of the water and racing the boat.
