Captain Bill was absolutely marvelous!! The trip was amazing!! My guest and I chartered a three hour venture and had the wonderful adventure! We celebrated my cousin’s birthday and everyone was elated to ride with such a great captain! He went above and beyond to make sure we had a joyous occasion! His personality was second to none!! I extremely recommend you charter him for your next boat ride!! You will not be disappointed!!
Bill was terrific at helping me learn more about handling a 42' sailboat. I'm trying to get more experience in preparation for taking a bareboat charter, and Bill's experience and mentorship was terrific. I look forward to booking with Bill again in the future.
Captain Bill offers the best value boat charter in the annapolis area, in my opinion. My wife and I chartered captain bills boat (through getmyboat.com) to celebrate her birthday and we had a wonderful time. You can participate as much or as little in the actual sailing as you prefer. There are several comfortable areas on the deck to lounge and catch some cosmic rays, and a salon below deck if you need to beat the heat. BYOB, BYO-snacks, bill provides the ice, water, coozies, and jokes. Very fun charter, would recommend to a friend
We had a wonderful 5 hr trip with captain Bill. Great scenery and a very nice boat. Bill and his crew are very knowledgeable and easy going. All you need to do is bring your good mood, and relax. We can't wait to do it again!
We had an awesome day out on the water with Captain Bill!! Loved the space on the boat, the music was good, and they were super accommodating! Would highly recommend.
FROM THE UNITED STATE COAST GUARD: Know your captain!: Illegal charters are more prevalent during the summer months. Getting underway with an uncredentialed captain can be dangerous, as they are not ensured to have the proper safety training or inspections as a credentialed charter captain does. When hiring a captain to take you out on their boat, check for their Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Credential. If you suspect an illegal charter, reach out to the local Coast Guard command center.
