Aboard DIRECTION, you'll sail like a local and learn the history of the Charleston Harbor during a 2 hour cruise. With Captain John and his first mate, you can kick back and enjoy a peaceful sail or get your hands "dirty" by taking the helm. We love teaching guests about sail trim, navigation, steering, and everything nautical. Whatever you want to do, we will make sure you have an incredible experience. Please note that we can begin our sails anytime between 11am - 7pm to fit with your schedule. You can message me prior to booking to arrange a better time to suit your schedule! LET'S GO SAILING!
Captain John Springer has been sailing his whole life. Known for his friendly, laid-back personality and expert sailing skills, Captain John is a former instructor at the Charleston Marine Institute who is happy to teach you as much about sailing as you want to know during your charter, or just show you the historic harbor sites as you relax with a drink in hand. Captain John is a USCG licensed captain and is certified in CPR. He and Direction won the Charleston Ocean Racing Association (CORA) Boat of the Year award in 2013, and he is a regular contender in CORA races.
After departing the marina, we'll take a short trip down the Ashley River and into the Charleston Harbor. During our cruise, we'll sail past the Battery and under the famous Ravenel Bridge before exploring the waters and history surrounding Ft. Moultrie, Ft. Sumter and Castle Pickney. From the Harbor, you can watch the sun set over downtown Charleston while the light plays on the Atlantic Ocean behind us. Dolphins are seen almost every trip.
