We went on the Sunset Sail on Monday night. We had such a nice time that we went on the Afternoon Sail on Friday afternoon. The sailboat is big and we stayed in the Calibogue Sound. Captain Peter is knowledgeable and involved everyone.

Taken by locals on a sunset dinner cruise. The food and drink was forgettable but the trip itself with the views of Harbour Town and Palmetto Island are very worthwhile. Might be better as a day time activity.

This was a fun cruise. The crew was friendly and the guide was informative. We really loved seeing the dolphins swim near the boat!

The steps & railing leading up to the boat should have been used as the anchor. The crew was pleasant and polite. Instead of having informative information as we sailed, pointing out what we were looking seeing, they played scratchy music over the PA system....More
