My wife and children and I all had a very relaxing and fun time. The sailing, alone, was great and Captain Jack knew what he was doing. But the spectacle of perhaps more than 100 dolphins over the course of 3 hours was an unexpected treat that my kids will talk about, undoubtedly, for years to come. Captain Jack was... More

We had a fun time with Captain Jack. The sailboat was beautiful and the water calm. We had many dolphin sightings and the scenerary was pretty. Captain Jack answered all our questions--would have enjoyed his telling us more about dolphins and the history of the islands. Plan to pay the fee on one credit card. The person at the front...

Captain Jack was fantastic. We asked him many questions about the wildlife and island life and he answered everything with deep knowledge. It is obvious that he loves the region and knows it well. We had a great sail and were lucky to see lots of dolphins. The boat is comfortable and perfect for family of 5-6.

We saw a sand shark and lots of dolphins. Did not get to use sails much as there was little wind. When sails were up and running we could hear the dolphins surfacing and blowing air out of their air holes. Would recommend this to everyone. ages on this trip: 70, 48, 42, 23 and 17 and all of us...

Captain Jack is a seasoned sailor who also knows a great deal of history about the island. The trip was extremely relaxing and fun, partly due to the fantastic dolphin show we experienced. We spent a little extra time just taking in their grace and beauty. If you are looking for a laid back, quiet time on the water -... More

Friends from out of town and didn't want to take them in the crowded container ship heavy Charleston Harbor. Of coarse they wanted to see dolphins and I just wanted a nice peaceful ride. We all got what we wanted. Capt Jack quickly took control of 'my' guests and I just sat back and kept the cooler company. Leaving from... More

My husband, daughter, and I had a lovely 3 hour sail with Captain Jack out of Bohicket and along the Edisto River. Captain Jack is an expert sailor and knows the area, the weather, and a great deal about the animal and shore life. He knew just where to find schools of dolphins and we spent a good deal of...

On the spur of the moment we celebrated a combined 68 of marriage. It was perfect weather and Captain Jack was entertaining, accomodating and shared anecdotes and background about the area. We sailed several times into groups of dolphins and watched them feed, frolick......and even mating. An afternoon delight!
