Owner description: Advanced Sail Inc / Hilton Head Island Sailing Charters has been providing intimate 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! Due to Hurricane Matthew destroying the docks at Palmetto Bay Marina, we have moved our Flying Circus Catamaran to Shelter Cove Marina for the 2017 season.

My mom and I went on Pau Hana with Captain Rick and First mate Nick. We had an amazing time. No matter where you are on the boat the sights are all around. We saw a lot of dolphins too. We went on the evening sunset cruise...just breath taking. I would recommend this sailing trip to anyone. And it's definitely for all ages.

Looking for The BEST sail on Hilton Head... Look no further, The Flying Circus was by far the best sail ever. We have sailed with Captain Bob on several occasions and plan to do it again!! The friendliest captain, spectacular catamaran and gorgeous scenery.
Thank you once again for making this stay on Hilton Head the best ever...I say that each time. But so true.

We took a sail on the Flying Circus. There were just 6 in our group (ages 16 -60) so we had the entire catamaran to ourselves. Our captain was "Captain Bob" and he was great. Our trip unfortunately was cancelled on the first night because of severe thunderstorms, but they worked with us to reschedule a trip with us before we had to leave town. Since it was just our group we were able to "customize" our trip. Captain Bob asked us what was the object of our sail... was it "to see dolphins, look at the birds or just to sail and relax". Our main objective was to see the dolphins. We sailed to many of the places were they are known to feed and we were able to see them & enjoy them in their natural environment. One swam right in front of our boat and right under my daughters nose. We appreciated our conversation with Captain Bob and learned about the island, the history and the people of hilton head. We ordered a very nice fruit & cheese platter from the Black Marlin restaurant which unfortunately we couldn't enjoy on the boat because we were rained out, but we did however have the platter as an appetizer and then went on to eat dinner at that restaurant. Overall we were extremely satisfied with the personal help and attention we were given. Highly recommend this sailing trip and also recommend requesting Captain Bob.

My husband & I went on the evening sail trip. The captain and first mate were both entertaining and great. The Pau Hana was very comfortable. We had 33 people on board and the view was great no matter were you sat. The trip is fine for older people. My 80 year old mother would love it. We went out and saw beautiful houses, the light house, dolphins etc. Don't miss this great way to see the area.

6 of us went on the private catamaran sunset/fireworks cruise with Captain Bob and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Captain Bob was informative and fun to talk to, the cruise and sunset were just breathtaking and the fireworks show out of Shelter Cover was the icing on the cake. Having only our family on this catamaran was the best made even better by our captain!! We will do this again only if we can have Captain Bob again!!
