Despite the calm winds, this was a highlight of our vacation - to get out on the water under sail. Made this a special treat for just my wife and I, along with Captain Jerry. The entire experience was a delight from corresponding with Jerry to making the arrangements, to changing plans due to weather forecasts, to the trip itself.... More

My fiancée and I had the most memorable time on this sailboat ride with captain jerry. His attention to detail and accommodations were unlike anything we've ever experienced. Worth the price of admission just to make a new friend. The sunset cruise took us around bird island to Kiawah and back. The scenery was topped off with a number of... More

This was my first time on a sailboat and the experience was awesome. We sailed with Captain Jerry Slayton, who explained to us about sailing. In addition, he told us stories (basically history stories), which we found not only interesting but enjoyable, as well. We spent some time on a private island (we took the sunset tour 4 hour tour).
