Full description
Embark on a 2.5-hour private sail for up to 6 people to Port Royal Sound on the Northside of Hilton Head Island. Under the direction of the Captain, get involved by hoisting and tuning the sails, pulling and releasing the lines, and steering the boat. Or, if you would prefer a relaxing trip, then kick back as the crew takes care of the work. Choose from either an afternoon, sunset or morning sailing trip.

In the afternoon, enjoy stronger sailing winds, and the opportunity to see wildlife such as dolphins, birds, stingray, and manatee. Marvel at great scenic views of Hilton Head, Pickney Island, Parris Island, Lady's island and Bay Island to mention a few.

Alternatively, choose the morning trip for calmer winds. This option is recommended for those who don't have much sailing experience. The morning is also a great time to anchor and swim off the boat if your group would like.

Lastly, opt for the sunset sail, which is generally still pretty breezy with some good sailing. Enjoy the perfect way to wind down, take the sails down to peacefully enjoy the beautiful panoramas. After the sun sets, motor back to the marina and dock right around the last light for the day.
