What a Pleasure to sail with Captain Paul at Anchor’s Away Sailing Charters. Paul is a wonderful captain and teacher. What a treasure to learn about the art of sailing, the Port Royal Sound and his adventures on the water. Captain Paul made our family feel comfortable on “Knot the Office”. The afternoon was spent relaxing and enjoying each other’s company, as well as marveling at the amazing creation. The sailing vessel was immaculate and the wood in the berth is truly beautiful. We had a fun family day of adventure! For a low-key, joyful day sailing in the low-country set sail with Captain Paul!

Riding on Paul’s sailboat was a wonderful experience. We were hesitant bringing our four kids but it was peaceful and relaxing the whole way. My kids were completely enthralled with the whole adventure. Paul warmly welcomed us aboard his boat and operated the boat with such professionalism. It was clear he thought of every detail from weather to drinks to music, and made sure we were enjoying ourselves. It was a beautiful evening. Nothing short than smooth sailing. Highly recommend.

We had our first sailing experience with Captain Paul. The boat, "Not the Office" is beautiful. He is both professional and knowledgeable and we actually learned a lot from him. We enjoyed it so much that we did it again and we know that when family comes to visit, sailing with Captain Paul will be on our agenda.

We highly recommend sailing with him to anyone who wants to get out on the water and have fun.

We enjoyed the sailing trip a lot! We liked how Paul showed us how to see the ocean depths and explained the equipment. He was very skilled and knowledgeable in not only the sailing aspect but the water as well. We enjoyed the part of the trip where we got to learn how the channel locks work for taking the boats in and out of the harbor. He made you feel like a part of the sailing experience and explained the “why” behind what he was doing as we were sailing. He was professional and made us want to book another venture.

"Sailing with Captain Paul was very fun. The boat was clean and comfortable. There is something about moving across the water without the noise of an engine that makes me smile and I don't know of a better way to watch the sunset. Captain Paul is very knowledgeable, so I enjoyed asking questions and helping with the sails. It was pretty cool to see some dolphins too."

Anchors away sailing charters gave my wife and I a great impression and experience on our very first sunset tour! Paul the captain was extremely knowledgeable about the area! His sail boat was very accommodating! We will defiantly be booking again on our next vacation!! Highly recommend!

I truly enjoyed my time sailing with Captain Paul. It was the middle of February and we still saw dolphins several times throughout the afternoon. The sailboat itself was well maintained and worked well. I found it comfortable and easy to maneuver around on the boat. It was great to be able to have a smooth sail without a motor running the entire time, which other companies have done. I give it two thumbs up.

“My wife and I had never been sailing before and had an opportunity to experience Sailing for the first time just a few short weeks ago.
Paul, the owner, seemed to have an ease about him that made everyone in the boat feel comfortable and relaxed at all times; he even let us help with letting the lines in and out! This Charter is absolutely Top notch and we couldn’t recommend Paul and Anchors Away Sailing any more highly! If you like to sail or, like us, just curious and want to try something new while in Hilton Head/Bluffton, this should be an absolute MUST on your vacation trip! I can hardly wait until our next Charter with Anchors Away!”

Captain Paul is THE BEST! Very welcoming, super knowledgeable and an absolute blast to hang out and sail with. This was my first time ever on a sailboat and I loved every minute it! Lots of laughs and lots of great memories were made (especially getting to help with the sails and maneuver the boat). The wind / weather was perfect which made for some awesome sailing! Paul is an experienced sailor and he’s even a pilot so I can assure you you’re in good hands! And the boat is beautiful too! 5 STARS!!!
Thanks for a great time and I look forward to doing it again!

Captain Paul, We had a great time aboard Knot the Office. As you know, I am an experienced sailor, but only on inland lakes with a much smaller boat. Thanks for your patience in letting me have the helm for a time, and handle the lines at other times. Fun–and you are a good coach! I was also impressed with your hospitality, knowledge, good judgement and seamanship. All in all, a wonderful experience. I am recommending Anchors Away Sailing to friends and family. Blessings!

Had the experience of sailing on the "Knot the Office" sailboat with Captain Paul.
Very professional, and knowledgeable of his boat and the waters.
It is a true sailing experience, with all the action of tacking, hauling in lines, and watching the fun meter! There was never a dull moment onboard. True sailing on a great sailboat, with all the accommodations, for a great time!
I highly recommend this experience to customers that really want to sail.

My fiancé and I recently had the pleasure of going out in the water with captain Paul and Anchors away sailing charters. As it was her first time in a sailboat she was a little uneasy at first. Paul and crew did a fantastic of explaining everything they were doing and why. Halfway into the charter the only thing my fiancé was concerned with was how many more dolphins will she get to see. Paul and the crew were very professional and provided a relaxing beautiful sailing experience. For me the best part was the fact that you as a guest get to be hands on. You learn what and when to do things and actually help sail the boat. I highly recommend Captain Paul and his crew!

Wonderful and relaxing cruise. First time sailing and we loved it!! Captain Paul was very knowledgeable and easy going which made the experience even more enjoyable. It was nice to view Hilton Head and other surrounding areas from such a beautiful sailboat. We found it to be very peaceful sitting under the sails and watching them move with the wind. Thanks to the Captain, we were able to get some photos of our first time sailing on Knot the Office. We truly enjoyed it and recommend everyone give sailing with Captain Paul a try!
