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!!!
Beautiful boat, and kind host! Great communication! We would love to do it again
Our experience on Jim’s boat was wonderful! He was easy to communicate with and the boat was exactly as pictured. We had a great time and hope to go again when the weather warms up!
If you are ever in the New Orleans area you must book with Captain Jim for a time on the water. His customer service skills are beyond amazing. He truly loves sailing and makes you feel right at home. We will definitely be back.
This was by far the best sailing adventure ever, Capt Jim was such an awesome guide... Our sailing was so smooth and such an Amazing scenery coasting the lake... We definitely be booking again.
