This was a great evening thing to do as a family. Very peaceful, able to take your own food and drinks and just relax and let Captain Jack educate you on the area and all of the marine life.

We had a great time on the 3 hour sail with Jack. He gave us a lot of good information about the islands and we saw A LOT of Dolphins!!! It was a beautiful, relaxing time on calm water and Jack was a great guide and very knowledgable. We would very highly recommend this activity.

Extremely easy booking. Beautiful Marina. The sailboat was beautiful, and Captain Jack did a fantastic job. He was very professional and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our time and would do it over and over again.

I highly, highly recommend Captain Jack. My wife and I, along with our two-year-old daughter, came to Kiawah Island for a vacation. Before the trip, I booked a sunset sailboat cruise for my family with Captain Jack. I chose to sail with Captain Jack because of the numerous positive reviews that he had received. When we got to the marina... More

What a great trip to go on with family, friends and kids. A nice leisurely cruise/sail in the bay with lots of dolphins and even a photo shoot from shore. Capt. Jack does a great job of discrimination the history of Wadmelaw. Highly recommended.

Captain Jack proved to be the perfect captain for our family sailing trip and dolphin adventure. We have two younger kids 7 and 3 and this was great for them. Could not ask for a better few hours out on the water and great all around experience. JW

We recently went on a 4 hour afternoon sail with Captain Jack. We had a great time. In addition to an awesome sail we saw many Dolphins which we observed in action and got some great photos. Dolphins are very challenging to photograph so we had Jack working! Jack has been in business for about 25 years thus he knows... More

Our first time staying at Seabrook Island and our sailing trip with Captain Jack was our favorite part! Beautiful sunset and playful Dolphins! A master of his craft, despite some wind and weather, Captain Jack managed to make it smooth and relaxing! ❤️❤️

We saw a lot of dolphins and we had a lot of fun. Capt Jack answered all our non-stop questions very knowledgeably. We did not have a lot of time under motor and sailed a lot, and when we saw dolphins Capt Jack would turn us around so we could get tons of awesome pictures. We would recommend this to... More

This was our third oppoptunity to sail with Jack aboard his sailboat the Palmetto tide. What a wonderful experience! Jack is so knowledgable about the local waterway he can anticipate the best places to see dolphin and what beaches offer the best chance to find unique shells. All timed perfectly to watch the sun set on the sail back to... More
