Established by Captain Dare Blankenhorn and Leigh Ann Nelson after years of being entrenched in the industry, culture and mindset of charter yachting, Sojourn Sailing now leverages relationships with owners of the most sought-after charter vessels to offer discerning luxury travelers a new way to plan, experience and remember their Caribbean sojourn.

Even the most seasoned charter customer can expect a level of service uncommon to the industry; we are your concierge to a life-list experience in one of our planet's most stunning locales. From yacht selection to marina transportation to discovering rarely visited sand-bottom bays, please count on us to offer high-touch service and unparalleled insight into creating an exclusive and unforgettable ocean adventure.

Natives of Raleigh, NC and comprehensively familiar with the bays, breaks and breezes of many of the world’s oceans, Captain Dare and Leigh Ann created Sojourn upon their recent return from the Caribbean, where they spent many years serving clients in the geographic heart of the industry.

The splendor and exclusivity of a full-service yachting adventure in the remote islands and exquisite blue-green waters of the Caribbean is something few get to experience. We created Sojourn to better serve that few.
