  • Couldn't ask for a better charter! We came to visit New Orleans, decided to explore outside of the city, this was definitely the highlight of our entire trip! Jim is a great Captin, excellent company, very knowledgeable, and not to mention, a great photographer! He will also provide you with high resolution photos of your party, the breathtaking view, and sunset. We also spotted dolphins, oh man, what a wonderful experience! Highly recommend.
  • Jim is an amazing captain highly recommend taking a charter with him it’s quite the journey.
  • Jim did an amazing job both as our captain and accommodating me and my parents this weekend! My parents were visiting from Baltimore. Initially, we were doing the Dinner Charter to include Half Shell Oyster House cuisine the day they flew in! Unfortunately, they had a snow storm and we had to reschedule. Nevertheless, Jim was able to get us in Sunday evening! No time for the food prep--but were welcomed to bring our own food and adult beverages! Jim supplied us with water, soda, tea and "North Star Sailing" beer coozies! So we grabbed sandwiches and beverages and were on our way! Jim shared with us great stories and information about the area to include the Mississippi Sound, Jones park, the hurricanes and the wild life. Jim is retired military and we are a military family (like most in the area). So we were able to connect and talk more about navy, boats, sea topics, as well as learn more about the area and sail boating. All while watching pelicans prospect and dive for food, as well as, groups of dolphins swimming in to say hi! The weather stayed clear and the sunset was gorgeous! Jim even let us try out being captain and steering the boat a.k.a. Kashmir(Ask him about the name)! The boat had a working bathroom and anything we needed on board for our 2.5 hour trip! Good price! Great company! Definitely recommend! I may try out his ASA certified sailing lessons next!
  • I have taken a sunset cruise and sailing lessons from Captain Jim and I thoroughly enjoyed them both! His sailboat is very comfortable and he is a good sailor and storyteller. Watching the sun set over the water while the dolphins were swimming along with us was unforgettable! After my lessons, I'm more excited than ever to continue sailing.
