Captain Jim Holbert is a native of Conway who grew up in a riverfront home along the Waccamaw River. His father, an avid outdoorsman, taught him at a very young age about boats and a love and respect for nature. As a youngster, Jim and his boyhood friends lived a Huckleberry Finn lifestyle. Boating, fishing, hunting, and camping were the boys’ passions. The quaint southern town of Conway with its scenic and alluring river provided the perfect setting.
In adulthood, Jim’s career in the Army gave him an opportunity to see the world, but his love for his hometown and “the river” never left him. As a US Coast Guard licensed Master Captain, Jim’s dream to share with others his passion for the Waccamaw River has become a reality.
