Jack was a great host and captain and would highly recommend him to anyone. He took time to explain and chat and would also give us as much space as we wanted. Boat was very comfortable and shaded and well maintained.

Captain Jack was friendly and informative. He has years of experience sailing and it was more than evident how comfortable he in on the water. He provided us with just the right amount of attention and privacy. I wouldn't recommend his trip if you are looking to do a fishing trip specifically. We were able to catch and release a... More

This was our second time sailing with Captain Jack. We had a great trip about 7-8 years ago when visiting Kiawah Island, and when we returned to Kiawah recently we decided to see if he was available. We were delighted to hear that he was still working out of Bohicket Marina and scheduled a sail for the afternoon. My husband,... More

We went on a 3 hour tour with Captain Jack on the Palmetto Tide and it was awesome. The Captain was very informative and we saw tons of Dolphins. It was a very relaxing sail. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Captain Jack took us on a wonderful trip on a perfect day. He was very amusing and knowledgeable of the area. The captain knew the exact spot to find dolphins that were eager to strut their stuff. It was an experience like no other on a very peaceful, quiet, desolate bay.

My family recently sailed with Captain Jack and we had an awesome day. We booked a 5 hour picnic tour to shell island. Captain Jack showed us all the sights along the way and was very knowledgeable about the area. The dolphins put on a great show for us too. Captain Jack was very accommodating and a pleasure to spend... More

My wife and I had an excellent and informative session with Captain Jack. The trip was as "hands on" as we wanted, and we learned so much about sailing. Captain Jack was flexible, professional, and patient in the face of our many questions. If you want a great day on the water, whether sailing, dolphin watching, or fishing, we are... More

My best friend, my four year old twins and I boarded Captain Jack's Palmetto Tide mid-week just before July 4 holiday. After many stressful, travel related issues, Jack was a kind, hospitable, professional. He gave us a little geographical layout, talked about dolphins and his sailing experience all while sailing the boat. My kids had never been on a boat... More

Our family booked the beach picnic with Capt. Jack on the Palmetto Dunes sailboat. Right away, he was attending to our personal needs (fair-skinned children) and put up the sunshade. The boat was incredible, and we were mesmerized by the dolphins. Once onshore, we walked the beach and saw great shells and horseshoe crabs. On the way back, we enjoyed... More

Visiting friends wanted to dolphin watch, and Captain Jack had been highly recommended. We know why!! He is friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to spend three hours with. We were surrounded by dolphins within a 1/2 hour of the sail. The Palmetto Tide is a beautiful sailboat, and it's easy to get a great view no matter where you sit. The... More
