This was a major hi light of our trip to Hilton Head! Captain Peter and his crew, Luke and Taylor, were amazing! They were all so personable and so interested in ensuring our trip exceeded our expectations. It certainly did! I highly recommend this sail for anyone interested in getting a water view of the island.
