A Family Owned & Family Operated Small Business


Learn about our family

Salt Marsh Sailing is owned and operated by Captain Brad Bumgarner. Captain Brad (just Brad is fine) is a US Coast Guard Licensed Boat Captain for both power and sailing vessels. He has been in the Charter Boat industry for almost 15 years, having started sailing in the U.S. Virgin Islands on a sailboat that did sunset sails and snorkel trips.

Seven years into that Virgin Islands adventure, Brad got married to the love of his life, Marija, and relocated to South Carolina’s beautiful Lowcountry where he started Salt Marsh Sailing. Brad and Marija are the very proud parents of three-year-old Olivia, and almost one-year-old Leilani.

We are proud to say that Salt Marsh Sailing is a small family operation. Your business quite literally puts food on our family’s table, and we NEVER forget that. Customer service is of the utmost importance for our small business, and your experience with us is sure to reflect that.

Welcome aboard, we’re glad to have you!
