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...

Although I'm ​technically ​considered "a local", I was looking for something ​very ​special to do with some friends and family visiting from out of state​. ​This trip​ couldn't have been more perfect. It was obvious that we had hired a​ passionate life-long pro​ and not just some cheesy​, boring​ tour guide like we've all experienced:) ​"Captain Jack​" was laid-back, entertaining​... More

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!

My family and I have been annually sailing with Captain Jack for over 10 years now. Every year I wonder if he can top his performance from previous experiences, and of course he always does! Just in the few hours of yearly sailing, I have gotten to know Jack as a friend and not just the captain of his boat.... More

Although Captain Jack was nice, he came across as lazy. We booked and paid for (in advance) a 3-hour tour, and he was 15 minutes late arriving. Then we had to wait while he prepared the boat. We left the dock 30 minutes later than we were supposed to, but he returned us to the dock after only 2.5 hours.... More

Thank for your feedback. I pride myself in not having a bad review ever, in my 22 years of charter sailing experience. I do however, always welcome the opportunity the improve my business and maintain my stellar satisfaction ratings. Perhaps I should have explained during our trip that depending on the direction of the wind, it can be necessary to... More

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
