Unforgettable Experience!

Private charter - evening sunset sail for our family of 6 was an amazing experience. Highly recommend. Captains gave an interactive & fun sailing experience for everyone. Lucked out with dolphin sightings and jellyfish catch.

Cameron, our instructor, was stellar! We truly enjoyed our first ever sailing experience. He was exceptionally knowledgeable, generous with his teaching experience, and patient. We are truly overjoyed with this time on the water. Thanks Cameron! We absolutely will return!

Worth It!

Camryn was an excellent instructor and we would highly recommend the basic sailing 101 class. We learned a lot and had a great time! This was a good introduction to sailing and we definitely plan to continue. Well worth it!

Highly Recommend!

Matty and Liz were amazing crew on our chartered sunset sail. They made us feel welcomed and educated us about the skill of sailing along the way. You can’t beat what they have to offer. We highly recommend this experience for anyone, whether your a Wilmington/Wrightsville native or a visitor to the area.

Capt. Matty and Amy are professional, knowledgeable and fun! We took the sunset cruise (twice this month) and absolutely had an amazing time on both sails. The boat is beautiful and clean. It has a bathroom! The tunes were whatever we wanted them to be and while we brought our own beverages, there were plenty on board! It was great to learn about all things Wrightsville Beach and surrounding small islands throughout the sail. The dock is located on a beautiful patch of beach with gorgeous white chairs. It was lovely to sit for a bit before the cruise! I highly recommend this cruise and everything Soundside WB!

We can't say enough about our experience. Great kayak adventure and sailing at sunset. The crew was fantastic. The weather turned on us while out sailing and the skipper got us in quickly and calmly. What a light show with the thunder - wow! Kayaking was excellent as well. Our sons who are teens had a great time doing both and we would definitely book tours with this company again. Wonderful way to experience the nature of Wrightsville Beach.

Terrific Crew!

This crew took great care of our family the entire week. From morning kayak’s in the sound to the afternoon island hopper boat ride, the crew is experienced and friendly. Thank you for showing us the way around the sound!
