We took a family sailing cruise to watch dolphins. Captain Jack is friendly, knowledgeable and made our family feel very safe. The boat has some shade in case it's very sunny and two great spots to sit in the bow or stern and enjoy the sail. Captain Jack will chat with you but also allow you to just enjoy your... More

We just had an amazing sunset dolphin tour cruise with Captain Jack! We shopped around and compared and with our family of five it just made more sense to spring and have the sunset private sale boat tour with Captain Jack. Jack was courteous and hospitable from the moment we called to inquire about booking all the way until stuffing... More

It was a very laid back sunset sail. Captain Jack is easy going as everyone says and we enjoyed just being out on the water as a family. He knows a ton about the area and answered all of our questions about the wildlife, geography, and his awesome boat. We brought sandwiches and drinks and made it a sunset picnic... More

Spontaneous outing with two adults and four teens in the heat of July - what could possibly go wrong? As it turns out - absolutely nothing. Capt Jack was courteous and informative and steered us straight out of the Bohicket Marina into the calm waters of nearby Edisto River. No fear of getting sea sick here as the wind was... More

Captain Jack was great. We did a 5 hour shelling excursion. During our trip a huge storm rolled in and he moved us quickly to cover. The whole trip was fun and informative. Captain Jack is a wealth of knowledge. I would definitely do this trip again.

Three hour afternoon sail with Captain Jack on the North Edisto River. Had a great time and saw lots of dolphin up close. Jack was very knowledgeable about the area and was happy to let everyone participate in the sailing. Would highly recommend this trip.

We reserved a 3hr sailing experience and we had a blast! Capt Jack was so much fun and extremely knowledgeable about the water. The dolphins were up close to the boat once we got out to sea. It was very relaxing. The only downside was the boat is a little dated. Needed a woman's touch or maybe a deep cleaning... More

Took the wife, teenage kids and two kids' friends out for a "sunset cruise" on this sailboat. Captain Jack was a great host and had the chilled out demeanor of a character in a Jimmy Buffett song. We stayed within the Edisto River and never went out to the Atlantic but that was probably better for dolphin and pelican viewing,... More

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...
