Bill captains a great sail, highly recommended!
Bill made the trip so enjoyable! He's knowledgeable, professional and got everyone involved in the experience. He was great with our 7 year old son. I highly recommend him.
Mom, Dad, & three GROWN children went out on a wonderful outing with Captain Bill. He was a gracious host & his beautiful sailboat was spectacular! Enjoyed the experience immensely & seriously considering sailing lessons next spring. His boat was not only in immaculate condition but very comfortable for all five adults (plus the amiable captain). We were thrilled to see dolphins and hear about the area's history. We sailed 14.9 memorable miles. I gave a 5 star rating because the ratings don't go to 10. Honestly, how does one rate a great memory that lasts a lifetime? We weren't sure if the weather was going to be a wash out for a few days out, but Captain Bill kept in contact via email with weather updates and was extremely accommodating to what would work best for us. The weather wasn't what one would call picture perfect but I thought it was awesome having so much of the water to ourselves. We only saw one other sailboat. This was an exhilarating experience with a knowledgeable captain and I can't recommend him enough!
I had my four children with me ages 5 to 12 the captain was very kind and understanding to them teaching them new things my son it was comfortable taking the helm and the captain enjoy teaching him the other kids not so much but that was okay however not to be prejudiced because they are my children but they are exceptionally good kids my youngest commented that she was upset she would not be seeing Captain bill the next day and on how much she liked him. we will be back to sail in August we learned about the wind the ocean and how to read it wheeler and practical knowledge and history of the area The boat was beautiful the captain was awesome it was a great day my kids will remember forever I am not one to give A+ review without truly meaning it

Additional Terms & Information
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.
