Had afour hour tour of the Cape Fear River and basins throughout the area. Wonderful day for sailing and viewing the river traffic. Captain and First mate were wonderful and knowledgeable hosts. Even allowing us an opportunity to take the helm. Great time. Highly recommend this excursion.

Of the three sail companies Jim and Barb offer the longest sessions - about 4 hours - which we thoroughly enjoyed this past weekend. Jim offers a lot of stories about local sights and history, and lets you participate in the sail rigging as you wish. We felt safe at all times, enjoyed the mix of local and out-of-town guests,...

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

Glad Roz enjoyed the sail but disappointed she only gave us a four star rating as we typically receive five stars...and we even saw some dolphin If a party wants privacy and serenity, i.e., all alone, we can make arrangements for them to use the entire boat for their party. We do this frequently for engagements, weddings, memorials, and other... 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
