Went on afternoon sail in Calibogue Sound. Very nice. Currents and winds allowed some good sailing. FYI regular seating in limited. Was nice to ride on some Americas Cup history
Very cool and fun sailing experience

In later October, the weather is occasionally very nice. We had a perfect day. Wanted to see some of the shoreline from the water and the sail was just right.The captain and his two interns were most friendly without being over bearing. They provided a bench for two old timers to sit on. The balance of the visitors had to sit cross legged in the bow and I’m glad they were healthier than we. Very enjoyable and worth the $50 a ticket for two hours.

They let my 10 year old son steer the boat for quite some time, and he had a GREAT time with that. The famous Stars and Stripes racing boat was a lot of fun to experience. Though there wasn't much wind for the sails the day we went, the crew was incredibly knowledgeable and had a great attitude to make the whole experience very enjoyable. Though it wasn't billed as a dolphin cruise, we saw MANY of those up very close and even saw a full rainbow on the return. A great memory! The only thing that could have been better was to get a little more wind, but thats certainly not something the crew can control. Highly recommended.

This was the best part of the trip and I always enjoy my long weekends to Hilton Head. I am not sure how I missed this activity on my last 3 visits however I can't wait to return this is definitely on the list now!Captain Peter and Lindsey and the rest of the staff were amazing. They were so friendly from the moment we arrived at the dock to the moment we left.1. I was excited about a photo op behind the wheel but was shocked when I was actually steering OMG LOL... I took my photo op and ran I don't like driving on land but this was much more beautiful. They let you help as little or as much as you want.2. They use summer interns who were just an awesome group of young people - great energy and personalities. They also took some super photos - knowing how to get the lighting just right and provide us with memories for a lifetime. The captain moved the Yacht just to get us a perfect photo with the light house and moon in the background.3. Lindsey and the trivia were entertaining and had out small group laughing and having a great time connecting. I didn't win the free drink for the most answers right actually got ALL of them wrong - close but wrong that just kept us laughing.4. They had cold beverages and there was plenty of space to interact with the crew and other guests or huddle to the side like some cute honeymooners on our boat.Vagabond - take care of that crew they are something special. Thanks for an awesome day.

Took the sunset cruise on a beautiful evening. Enjoyed the captain and crew on a really laid-back sail. I even took the helm for a good bit of the trip, which was a thrill. Great experience. I would recommend it for adults; not sure kids would enjoy it.

I chartered the Stars and Stripes sailboat for a sunset cruise for my husband’s birthday for our family and friends. It could not have gone better! The crew Captain Peter, Jenna, Ellie and Ishmael were top notch. Attentive, professional and gave everyone such a great experience! It was something I know we all will always remember. We had 22 people and each person has texted multiple times how much they enjoyed it. Totally recommend if you want to have a memorable time even if you don’t rent out the whole boat like we did you’ll still have a great experience!
