Spend 3 hrs sailing aboard the Endless Summer with Capt. Jim & his wife. Add 6 visitors & you've got a full boat. Best seat in the house - up & behind Capt! See the coast line of Southport, NC & listen to the tour info that is shared. Safety first - and Capt will cut short or not venture... More

Captain Jim and First Mate, Joe did an excellent job with this non-sailor lady. I enjoyed not needing to get involved with the boat's operations or with being super social. I loved being able to just sit on deck and up at the bow, doing nothing but watching the water and sunshine, and listening to the wind and waves. It... More

Great afternoon onboard with Captain Jim! Nice mix of a leisurely sail and helping man the boat. Captain Jim got everyone involved at the level they wanted to be. We had a variety of ages on our cruise and everyone had a great time. He was a great host and very knowledgeable about the area.

A wonderful way to see the Southport area by boat! Clean, comfortable and loads of fun mixed in with history of the area. Captain Jim and his wife are very nice people. A great way to show visitors around.

Captain Jim offers a wonderful way to spend 4 hours on the water off the Southport, NC coast. We 3 couples motored and sailed the Intracoastal Waterway and Cape Fear river. Our day was too rough to venture into the Atlantic. Captain Jim also gives a great overview of the past and current history of the Cape Fear Region. Hope... More

Endless summer is a beautiful boat that holds six plus two crew members. Captain Jim is very knowledgeable as a tour guide and a very experienced helmsman! We were made comfortable right from the start with our safety demo. This is a great way to see the surrounding islands and the Intracoastal Waterway. Since it was a very windy day,... More

Booked a trip for my daughter and I on 6/23/17. My daughter is 11 ans Captain Jim and First Mate Bob made her feel right at home on the water, allowing her to assist in raising the sails, taking a turn at the helm, riding on the bow and answering her steady stream of questions. Captain Jim and First Mate... More

We booked a day sail to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We are new to the area and chose Endless Summer based solely on TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Captain Jim and Barb were capable, informative and kind. We sailed the ICW and out past Bald Head Island. By the time we docked we felt like we made two new... More

And I was especially pleased you became comfortable on the boat. Barb and I hope to see you both in the future. Hope Steve plays... More

Jim and Barb are wonderful. It was a great outing. We enjoyed the beauty of coastal NC with a great narrative from Jim that kept us educated.

This was our second time to sail with Jim Carey on his Endless Summer sailboat. He is very knowledgeable of the area, loves to share some fun facts, and will allow you to help out with the sailing if you desire to. Our first sail was with another couple in the afternoon several years ago, and we took my parents... More
