Pleasant Sailing Experience
Meghan_B, May 2022
The crew was very friendly and we got to steer the boat as well. Veronica , Chase and Peter(the Captain ) are awesome people . Definitely recommend it . Got to see a couple of dolphins as well. We used our drone for a bit and we almost lost the drone due to battery issues . Chase helped us retrieve the drone from air before we lost it .

The entire experience was so cool. We’d never been sailing. The crew was knowledgeable and friendly. My sons got to help steer and raise the sail. It was an unforgettable experience and I’m so glad we did it.

Memorable Sail
sbellamy3, Sep 2021
30 kn winds made for a good lean as we tacked. It was a father/sin event for us which is always memorable. Sailing on the historic Stars and Stripes is a treat. The only negative was that we were expecting a sail “around HHI”. We only sailed back and forth between HHI and Daufuskie.
Excellent afternoon on the water.
Stephen_T, Aug 2021
Very relaxing. Enjoyed the crew and how they took care of their guess. I recommend this outing for anyone who is looking for a relaxing afternoon with the family.
Wonderful afternoon event.
Thomas_M, Aug 2021
The captain and crew were outstanding. Shared a lot of stories about the area. They were fun and energetic. We had a great time!

The staff were amazing. They treated everyone like family and before long we were making friends with them as well as other riders. Their skills were excellent so much so we all felt comfortable. Overall it was a wonderful day.
