Horrible customer service! I booked to sail in April. Obviously they are not sailing. They even admitted they are not sailing. According to their website they would give a refund if the captain cancelled. I think this qualifies as a cancellation. I could not reach anyone by

We are sorry that you felt our customer service team was rude. We assure you this was not the case. We do not mention refunds on our website and guests agree to tickets being non refundable prior to agreeing to purchase. During this time, we have extended the ability to re-book to another date or receive an open ended credit for future use. There is no expiration date on the gift card, so that can be used when you are able to travel.

We are so glad we selected the Schooner Pride for our Charleston Harbor tour. The wind was perfect so that we were propelled nicely into the bay. The captain didn't narrate the tour, which was fine with us. Points of interest were pointed out and questions were thoroughly
