  • Captain Brian was amazing. We did a morning sail on the Prevailing Winds, the smaller craft. There were 4 in our party so we had plenty of room. This was my first time on a sailboat and I had no idea how relaxing it is. Everything was perfect, and we couldn’t have had a better captain!
  • We had an awesome time sailing with Captain Phil! We are Charlestonians and appreciated the captain's passion & knowledge of the area and the history of the Holy City. I would recommend this sunset cruise for tourists and locals alike. Oh, and be sure to request the Hurrican Hugo rap. You won't regret it!
