About Pau Hana Flying Circus Catamarans
Advanced Sail Inc / Hilton Head Island Sailing Charters has been providing fun dolphin watch sailing charters on Hilton Head Island since 1989. It's the Ultimate Sailing Experience and the "Environmentally-Friendly" Way to see Nature Under Sail! We are the “original” and longest running catamaran sailing operation on the island! Due to Hurricane Matthew destroying the docks at Palmetto Bay Marina, we have moved our Flying Circus Catamaran to Shelter Cove Marina since 2017. She is sailing daily for two and three hour intimate private dolphin watch trips for parties up to six guests, plus an experienced sailing captain. Safe and stable for all ages. You are welcome to bring along a cooler with your favorite snacks and libations. We would enjoy having you join us!

We sailed with Jeanne and John and had a wonderful time. We saw dolphins on our sail and a most spectacular sunset. As this is our third sail with their team we strongly recommend sailing with them!

Beautiful, serene evening hosted by the very knowledgeable owners Jean and John. Smooth sailing with my visiting friends. Learned a lot about the area from Jean, a 40 year resident.

Jeanne and John were wonderful hosts. The Flying Circus was perfect. Weather was awesome as was the sunset. Mild winds allowed us to sail after leaving the dock. Wine, cheese, and a beautiful sail!! We will return.

We had a nice evening with Jeanie and John on the Flying Circus. We got a chance to see dolphins and the conversation was great. The opportunity for a private cruise for four during the Covid pandemic was a great break for us.

What a BEAUTIFUL evening. We set sail into the scenic waters of Hilton Head on the Flying Circus Catamaran. The trip was private and perfect for these times right now due to COVD restrictions. The professionalism and safety concerns exceeded all expectations. We brought our own cooler filled with things we love ... cheeses and wine! The boat was comfortable, clean and relaxing! Captain John and his first mate Jeanne made the tour unforgettable by sharing a wealth of knowledge about the nature right in front of us, along with tales of the Island. The views were spectacular ... a few dolphins, scenic landscape , the sunset, and the company. What an incredible experience. We are so thankful for Captain John and Jeanne sharing their love of sailing and Hilton Head with us! A must book when you are here in the Island. We cant wait to do it again!
