Jim Carey and his wife, Barbara gave us a beautiful sail around the Southport harbor. Jim is very knowledgeable and entertaining. This was our second trip on the Endless Summer. Well worth it.

Great sailing no matter your level of experience. Captain Jim and first mate were friendly, easy going and quite knowledgeable. We have only sailed on the West Coast and Caribbean so this was a treat! Love the area and will be back. Highly recommend!

Our group of six ladies loved our time with Jim and Barb! They were super-attentive and very knowledgeable of local history as well as sailing. We loved the hands-on experience and relaxed atmosphere. It was a perfect ending to a wonderful week!

Chick cruises -- the most fun on the water! No egos or testosterone to deal with. Barb and I thought y'all were great and hope you have us in your plans for the future. Great day with great guests on the water.

Captain Jim and Endless Summer are the perfect combination to show the beauty of a N.C. coastal port. Do not miss the water perspective. Well worth the time and expense.

We had a wonderful time on our day tour! The captain was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. We had a great time chatting and listening to stories about the history of towns while sipping on wine and enjoying the ocean breeze!
