Captain Bill is professional an experienced, the boat was clean in good condition. We had an enjoyable time. Brought our own food and drinks took in the sun and relaxed.
Capt. Bill was amazing. He took great care of our family and everyone got a chance to work on the boat. Capt. Bill is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and sailing. Thanks
A great first time sailing experience for all involved. All three of us got to contribute to the operating of his sailboat. He gave us a great introduction to the art of sailing.
My family of 5 had a wonderful day sailing with Bill to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. Bill was very knowledgeable and excellent at explaining things to my children, even letting them each take the helm. We felt very at ease and safe our entire trip. I am already recommending him to friends.
Bill captains a great sail, highly recommended!

FAQ Is There A Bathroom? Yes, a working head plus hot and cold water. There’s privacy to change into bathing suits. What Should I Wear? Bring a sweater and jacket in the fall. Are Life Jackets Provided? Yes, certified US Coast Guard PFDs are provided. What About Children? Kids 12 and under have to wear life jackets regardless. Can We Take More People? No, six maximum. Coast Guard regulations preclude any more, including children. Can We Bring Beer And Wine? Oh sure. Bottled water is provided too. What If It Rains? We’ll try to reschedule your sailboat charter. Sometimes an afternoon shower interrupts a sail, but only briefly. If the trip is washed out, you won't be charged. What About Thunderstorms? They usually pop up in late afternoon, so an 11 a.m. departure is best. Do You Have Shade From The Sun? Yes, a bimini awning covers the back quarter of the cockpit. What About Getting Seasick? It's highly unlikely, since the waves on an inland river are much gentler than those found on the Chesapeake Bay or Atlantic Ocean. For those in doubt, take Dramamine the night before to get it fully into your system. We also have motion sickness wristbands and ginger gum on board.
