Schooner Welcome Weddings

An exciting and unique venue for your special day!

Weddings, Rehearsal Dinners, Cocktail Parties, and Wedding Party Events

Schooner Welcome is Charleston's most unique party on the water!

The Schooner "Welcome" truly is "the Classy Lady" of the harbor! This beautiful sailing vessel allows you to "step back in time" to an age where The Coast Guard Revenue Department patrolled the Charleston Harbor and surrounding waters with small swift wooden schooners.


This 62 foot Schooner is an amazing replica of those famous boats, and with her highly varnished decks, gaff rigged sails, and polished brass, Schooner Welcome is an amazing place to celebrate in The Charleston Harbor and the three rivers that make up the Lowcountry Waterways.
