      Perfection!
      From the minute we boarded, to meeting Captain Jim and the other parties, we loved everything about this adventure! I'm a local and will be sailing with Shamrock Sailing Adventures again and again!

      Highly recommended
      Absolutely lovely way to spend an early evening. We sailed though the inter-coastal and then out into the ocean. Jim was a fantastic host. Interesting, attentive and gregarious- perfect for his retirement gig!!

      Beautiful, relaxing sail!
      We're local to the area, but decided to splurge on this sail for our anniversary. It was such a lovely way to experience the area from a viewpoint we're not used to seeing. Based on a prior review we aimed to be the first one's there so we'd get first pick of seats. We sat all the way up on the bow with a bottle of wine and it was perfect! We also had great conversation with some other guests on the cruise as well as the Captain. We had some storms in the area that made our trip particularly atmospheric! We would highly recommend!

      Fun and Knowledgeable
      We had a great time on Captain Jim and wife Debby's sailboat. They were both very knowledgable and fun. My fiancé and I learned a lot of fun facts about the intercostal, North Carolina, the ocean, local wildlife, sailing, and the history of their one of a kind sailboat!

      Soothing Sunset Sail
      On August 20,2023 at 5:30pm we boarded Jim’s world traveled, one of a kind sailboat and set sail. Doug and I were two of six excited and happy passengers along with our captain Jim and his wife Deb. The weather was perfect, skies clear,swells low with beautiful hue to the ocean and cool, pleasant wind speed of 10-15 knots. Conversation was lively and enjoyable. We shared much about our lives and found we had experiences in common. It was my first sail. It was exhilarating, peaceful,calming,delightful,refreshing…I wanted to remain on the ocean, sailing. The sunset was breathtaking, spectacular. “ I must go down to the seas again…all I ask is a tall ship….the wheels kick, the wind’s song, white sails shaking…” Highly recommend this sailing adventure with Jim.

      Was a very nice trip and afternoon. The only thing better would have been if we could have used the sails. Very informative guide and enjoyed him very much. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

      Fun Family Friendly Excursion
      Captain Jim knows his stuff! He took us on a mini excursion, showed us the "ropes" of sailing, and showed us a part of nature we wouldn't have gotten to see. He was personable, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. Wonderful time on the water!

    Thanks so much for your generous comments. Indeed, some days we are privileged to see all the gifts the sea has to offer. While weather is the canvas, family and guests are the artful creation of broad smiles, deep laughs, and encouraging conversations along the way. Until the next adventure! Best wishes, Captain Jim

    I surprised my husband with a private charter for our 25th Wedding Anniversary with Shamrock Sailing and Captain Jim. We had a great time! Captain Jim was very nice and knowledgeable of the area. The boat is huge, 42'! It was cool to see Wrightsville Beach from the ocean side instead of land, lol. The open waters were not for me, upset tummy, but loved the intercoastal portion. Thank you for a lovely day!

    Thanks Mellissa for your kind review of our ocean excursion and intracoastal excursion. Hosting you and Patrick on SV/Shamrock was a pleasure. I look forward to seeing you again on a smooth, ICW and Banks Channel cruising adventure. Enjoy the remainder of your summer! Best, Captain Jim

    Jim was great! Beautiful sail. Jim tried to accommodate what we wanted to do despite conditions.

    More characters needed so this is filler.

    Many thanks James for your comments. Springtime brings weather conditions that change rapidly along the coast. This past week winds regularly exceeded 25 knots along the SE coast. While wind makes for exciting sailing conditions, activities like anchoring, or swimming become more dangerous. I really hope you can bring your kids and family back to the area so e can arrange another private cruise to enjoy the barrier islands and plow the offshore waters. With Gratitude, Captain Jim

    My pleasure Steve to meet your family and see the smiles and laughter as we glided along the shoreline of Wrightsville Beach and Masonboro Island. I look forward to our next adventure. Best regards, Captain Jim
