Thank you Captain Iris for making our experience on the Chesapeake one to remember. Our voyage was at least a year ago (and I'm just getting around to writing) but the beautiful evening seems like yesterday. My sister and I were spending a fun weekend away together in St. Michaels. We had planned on taking an excursion on the historic... More

The most fun thing to do in St. Michael's Maryland is to take a ride on the Selina II. Capt. Iris is informative and entertaining. The boat is a gorgeous old yacht. My girlfriend kept saying oh my god oh my god this is the most beautiful boat I have ever seen. The boat was built by the captain's grandfather... More

On a beautiful September day at sunset we were married aboard the Selina II. The Captain and her first mate were excellent and extremely gracious and the ceremony while under sail was one that we will never forget. We could not have asked for more and Capt. Iris conducted a beautiful ceremony for us. We hope to return for our... More

We booked this as a group of 5 for a friend who was turning 50 - we spend 5 days in St. Michaels and did so many wonderful things including multiple boat trips. Captain Iris is passionate about Selina and so she should be - she is maintained to the highest standards and has been in Captain Iris's family since... More

Thanks for your kind words. Yes I do try to keep Selina maintained well, she is a beautiful boat with a beautiful heart and deserves the care I give her. Part of the reason she is still with us when so many other old boats are long gone is because she has always taken good care of my family, ie... More

We left on our champagne sunset cruise right on time. We were the only guests so it was almost like a private charter. The captain and the mate were wonderful company. We learned about the area, they let me sail the boat. The boat is a beautiful statement of a by gone era. South fun we will take some friends... More

Sometimes people are surprised that we dont cancel when only two guests have signed up for a sail, but I dont want anyone disappointed so off we go, and in your case it was a joy, you were fun to be with! We'll look forward to our next sail together, and thanks for offering to bring friends with you. -Capt... More

Exactly as "Watch Out For The Tip At The End" says. Great trip but Capt Iris refused our tip as it was not deemed to be sufficient. She was rude and it left a sour taste in the mouth after a nice 2 hour trip on the bay. We gave a cash tip to her 'mate' instead who seemed happy... More

In the 12 years I have been taking folks for sailboat rides I have never been so embarrassed by the offer of a $10 tip on a $150 fare. I was too embarrassed to accept the $10, and apologized for the poor service at the time. In the high winds we came in under I had my first bad landing... More

This was a very romantic setting to get married. My partner and I had been together for 18 years, and finally decided to get married. I wanted something small, and my partner wanted something special. This was SO much better than either of us could have imagined. Captain Iris and Frank are wonderful people. I've been to many weddings, and... More

Our group of four sailed on the Selina recently and have mixed reviews on the experience. We had a nice excursion, although shorted by the weather, the trip was good. There was an incoming storm and Captain Iris felt that we might be able to go out for half the scheduled time and still miss the rain. So off we... More

I'm sorry that somehow you missed our information about tipping that appears on our web site, brochure, and email confirmation. With all that information in so many places I'm surprised it was a surprise to you. On this type of charter boat it is customary to tip the mate like a restaurant, 15-20% depending on service. As to 'laughing all... More

Captain Iris and Frank helped make our anniversary weekend on the Eastern Shore a success. Their boat is very clean and comfortable, and they offered an impressive choice of champagne, wine, and beers for the sunset cruise. The artichoke dip they served was ok, but nothing special. Tip: we made sure to eat a granola bar/snack prior to the cruise... More

Thanks for your kind words. Our wine list just got a bit longer as we have had so many requests for a sweet wine this summer. So Riesling is now on the list, too. I must have been a bar tender in another life..... fun! - Capt Iris More
