In October, my wife and I made weekend trip to Southport where we stayed in nice Bed and Breakfast and while there we took our first sailing lesson with Priority Sailing. It was a wonderful experience. Dave and Carolyn were very warm and friendly. We enjoyed every minute of the experience with them and plan to return soon. Ralph and... More

We sailed with Carolyn and Dave for a nice evening cruise. My stepdaughter and husband got to get involved with helping and steering. What a wonderful experience and I highly recommend this to people looking to do something not touristy and unique.

My husband and I had our vows renewed on Oak Island. Carolyn performed the ceremony. Her husband Dave, was nice enough to offer to take pictures for us! The ceremony was beautiful, it was far beyond our expectations. We are so happy that we chose them to be a part of our special day! HIGHLY RECOMMEDED!

My husband and I have recently moved to Southport, NC. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to spend a Sunday afternoon sailing with Captains Dave and Carolyn Pryor on the Carolina Gale. We learned so much about Southport and its history as we sailed. We loved the afternoon and look forward to another sail with them. We would highly... More

My wife sailed some years ago when she lived near a lake. The wind and water are still in her blood so she researched sailing cruises during our Southport, NC vacation. She found Priority Sailing and after speaking with Carolyn we knew we were in for something special. Weather cooperated and we sailed out to Bald Head while learning about... More

My boyfriend Brantly and I recently took a sunset sail with Priority Sailing for our one year anniversary and had a blast! We saw multiple dolphins, had a very scenic tour of Southport from the waterway, and the sail ended with a gorgeous sunset to watch. Definitely would recommend this to others visiting Southport!
