Great value! Excellent sailing gear!! If you are an experienced sailor with at least one other person, you won't find a better value for day or overnight sailing near Annapolis. I will definitely be renting this boat again either with my family for the day or some buddies overnight. Took Icarus on a two night late-October trip from Rock Hall, overnight in Annapolis then St. Michaels with a couple buddies. James made the process VERY easy - very communicative and willing to go the extra mile for our convenience. This Hunter 34 sails really well (especially upwind.) It is set up that one experienced sailor and one other person can easily manage it. Comfort-wise it is probably better dockside on shore power in order to be able to utilize the cabin climate control system and power outlets for charging your phones (bring portable chargers if you won't be on shore power.) Returning the boat into the slip was a little tricky and James offered to be there to "coach us" in but we managed it on our own. The diesel was very reliable and fuel efficient - recommend you listen very carefully to James when he explains how to start it because can be a little tricky (as of Oct 2023.) Recommend you bring a handheld (or phone) GPS because as of Oct 23 the GPS is in the cabin. Bottom line - this is a great value - don't hesitate to book!!
Excellent time out on the water for my wedding anniversary . Relaxing at times and also cruised around when the wind picked up. Saw many cool sights and lighthouses.
We rented a boat with Captain Brian to scatter my sister and brother-in-law’s ashes. From the first message, Captain Brian always returned my messages as soon as possible and always answered my questions. On the boat, Captain Brian (Wes) was so kind! He explained everything to us and was very compassionate. I would use him again and will suggest him to my friends! Thank you Captain Brian (Wes)!
Wes is a pleasure to work with, he's responsive and communicative during the booking process and the excursion. The boat was very clean and well appointed. On board, he's a conscientious professional; the purpose of my trip was to scatter flowers in honor of my recently deceased mother - Wes made me feel very comfortable going through my own emotions. I highly recommend Wes and I would charter a boat from Wes again.
This was our second time out with Commodor Steve as a birthday present to myself. The second time was as much fun as the first. We were unable to go out into the ocean around the cape to chase the dolphins this time because of the wind and waves but he made it super enjoyable none the less. We all got a bit wet and got to see a race from a nearby sailing club. Cannot wait to do it again.
Captain Steve was so accommodating to my family! We took a 4 hour trip and we managed to see a ton of dolphins, went down and around Cape May and even was able to check out Stone Harbor! We even got a chance to drop anchor and jump and swim off the boat. I had a diverse set of ages from 10 to adult and everyone one had a blast! It was simply delightful to hear all the local history Steve shared. He was an absolute joy and we will be for sure coming back! Thank you! And the kids can’t wait to do it again!!!
