Great afternoon on the water. Capt. Jack took us right to the Dolphins at Privateer Creek for an extended observation. Gracious and low key, congenial host on a classic, cruising yacht. Accommodated the 9-year old well and let her helm the boat (supervised).

I do not remember the cost exactly, I want to say about $75.00 each. It depends on which sailing/time you take. Not sure that this would work for handicapped as it is slightly difficult getting into and out of the boat. I... More
