Smooth sailing on a sunny afternoon; nothing but a balloon sail to cast you away along the beautiful Lake Pontchatrain coast way! Captain Jim provides a wonderful staycation that can’t be beat right here on the Northshore. His sailboat is a great way to go. Sailing on the lake at sunset in the moonlight is great for a fun relaxing afternoon.
Jim was an amazing captain, the weather was on our side, and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to end our wedding night! He had snacks, water, chips, Gatorade, wine glasses, speakers, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, chairs for us to sit in ! It was an a amazing experience!
Captain Jim was terrific and we had a fantastic day on the lake. He was very thorough in explaining all of the safety requirements and we felt to be in good hands with him at the helm. We could not have had a better experience and will certainly be repeat customers. Many thanks to Captain Jim for making our excursion a memorable experience.
My friends and I felt like we were sailing on the French Riviera. Best birthday ever aboard Captain Jim’s stunning sailboat with 5 friends. Captain Jim was delightful and so hospitable, letting us go for a dip during our 3 hour tour. A+ snack selection. Loved that he had such a good speaker set up and comfy seating. It was such a memorable experience, I hope to sail with him again! Would recommend to any and all, it’s an absolute must!!!
We had an amazing trip with Captain James. He had amazing stories to tell of his sailing racing/experiences. We went for a sunset sail on a day that the weather was on and off again rain showers. James made sure to maneuver around the storms so we actually never were rained on. He had complete control of the situation, a very experienced sailor. Both sails were raised and engine off for most of our trip. Truly a Rememberable adventure for all. Will go again in the future and will highly recommend to friends and family. Thanks so much for the beautiful sail.
I am excited to be a part of the GetMyBoat movement in making boats more accessible and affordable to others. I hope to get out on the water more and help boating grow!
