We moved into the area 3 yrs ago and love Southport. We set sail with Jim and Barb on the "Endless Summer" to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. The weather was great as well as the company. Jim and Barb shared a lot of the local history with us and made for a most enjoyable trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our... More

My wife and I sold our vacation home at the beach, and decided to take a vacation for the first time in years. I already wrote about the cute inn we stayed at in Southport, but the highlight of our 3 day vacation was the sailing adventure we had with Capt. Jim and his wife on the Endless Summer. We... More

We sailed with Captain Jim and Barb on a beautiful late summer day. They sailed us by some of the landmarks and provided historical context. One of our ranks was able to raise the sail to the top manually before Jim produced the winch handle. We enjoyed Jim's subtle humor and Barb's hospitality and will bring friends and family back.

Thank you so much for the great review! The sail setting record still stands although a slight, young lady almost raised the sail completely. Glad to have your motley crew sailing with us and hope you come again. Cap'n Jim More

Such a wonderful day sailing with Captain Jim and Barbara. For me, nonswimmer and not fond of sailing, I am now fond of sailing and felt complete secure with knowledgeable captain. Thanks for a super day in our new hometown of Southport. We had a great day and learned a lot along the say. I hope to come back soon... More

Second time in two years with Capt Jim. Once again, a fun, adventurous ride. Jim is good at telling stories, history, current affairs--in short, at keeping everyone entertained. And the journey is fantastic! Plus, I got the added thrill of being at the helm for three of the four hours. Highly recommended.

Set sail with Capt. Jim on a leisurely excursion from Southport, N.C. along the Intercoastal waterway. Bring your kids along and let them have a hands on experience aboard a working sailboat. The price is right, and the sky is always blue in N.C.

I took this trip last year and loved it so much I went back again. This time was even better!! I took the 230 afternoon cruise and this time actually helped a bit more with the sails and rigging. It was so peaceful out towards the ocean, we saw a large group of dolphins and Captain Jim was able to... More

So glad you joined us for the sail. It was a thrill to view the Spaniard come from the horizon. Enjoyed having you and your friends on board and hope you return again. BTW, Ryan Enroth, a very gentle diver, will begin having dive classes at Blackbeard's Dives in the marina complex shortly. Let me know if you'd like to... More

This is an amazing Sail boat adventure! I highly recommend the Endless Summer. My children and I had a wonderful Time with Captain Jim and His mate Bob.

I came to Southport to visit my husbands family and the first thing we did was set sail for the afternoon on Endless Summer. Jim and Barbara were so welcoming and really set the tone for a relaxing afternoon. I spent time both listening to Jim and his knowledge about the area and laying under the sale with my eyes...

My 2-sons and I took 4-grandsons for an exciting sail on the Cape Fear River. Captain Jim and Barb were very accommodating and gave the kids a number of lessons in sailing, even allowing them to help raise and lower the sails as well as handle the helm. Thank you, Jim and Barb for a memorable 3-generation adventure!
