Lovely experience! Captain Abby and Captain Bob were some of the kindest people ever. They were incredibly accommodating and taught us a ton about sailing. I would definitely recommend to a friend.

What a wonderful experience! We sailed up and down the river, and I even got to steer for a bit. They were incredibly accommodating and answered any questions, from sailing to where to find the best oysters.

Captain Bob and Sally are such wonderful hosts! Enjoyed the insightful stories about the lush history of the area. I'm not a swimmer but I felt safe & secure. The boat was so luxurious - lots of amenities and thoughtful extras. A+ sailing experience!
