What you'll do

I take guests out sailing, into nature and amongst the dolphins, pelicans and other wildlife. I pick up guests at 97 Center Street Folly Beach in Folly River on the dock. I deliver our safety speech, informing guests of all safety procedures and then we pull up the anchor and roll out the sail. We head southwest down the Folly River and search for bottle-nose dolphins, we watch pelicans dive for their dinner, we see seagulls laughing and often will see a hawk gripping a fish in its claws. I explain differences in how pelicans fish verse hawks, explain about the low country eco systems, and much history about this low country’s marsh land. Depending on the wind direction we may have to roll our sail in and use motors to get back to where we started from, but once we do I will return guests back to the dock we started from. This is an exciting time to sail on a large catamaran that has plenty of space to sit in a seat inside or outside, or stretch out and lay up on the trampoline. Fun and safe for all ages.
Other things to note
I have refrigeration onboard, feel free to BYOB. Please don’t wear high heals.

Hello, my name is Captain Ryan Carroll and I love to take people out sailing! Seeing guests faces when the wind fills the sails and the boat begins to move really makes me happy. I love teaching guests how to sail, which winch to crank at each moment to be able to move the boat in the direction we chose. I love to share all of my knowledge of sailing and the experiences I’ve had on the water while sailing with guests so they may entertain grand ideas of becoming a sailor. The low country marsh land is home to so many different species and I love to educate guests on the ecosystems and history behind this area. My tour takes us past the first home ever built on Folly Beach, that used to be a hospital during the civil war. I love to find bottle-nose dolphins, pelicans, hawks, turtles and other marine life and share their feeding patterns.

Our evening on Ryan’s catamaran was magical. He is an excellent host and a superb sailor. As he sailed us toward the sunset, we slowed to observe groups of young dolphins feeding and they often followed our boat! Wonderful evening. Would go again anytime!

Had an awesome time! He made me and my boyfriend feel at home, and his dogs are definitely a plus! Ended the night with an amazing sunset.

Ryan was super prompt when sending an inquiry with specific questions. I appreciated the extra steps taken knowing there would also be a child on the boat. We really wanted a nice and relaxing afternoon on the water and that’s exactly what occurred during our experience.

Ryan seriously knows how to have an incredible time with all of his guests. Instead of treating you like you are a number in a business, he treats you like one of his own friends. His passion for sailing is absolutely inspiring, and this experience is one that you do not want to miss. Whatever your reason for being in Charleston or Folly Beach, you need to take part in this incredible opportunity. Seriously, this is my third time sailing with Ryan and every time is completely worth it. If you are still reading, stop. Just book it. Thank yourself later. You won’t regret it! Also, I brought my puppy and he LOVED it!

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Getting to sail the beautiful and calm waters while Ryan captained his beautiful catamaran was an amazing experience and I would recommend it to everyone. Ryan’s and his dogs on board were very hospitable and the boat was large, clean, and very comfortable. I hope to come back to Charleston and set sail again!
