My wife and I had an amazing experience with Black Watch Sailing Charters. I called Captain Dave with an idea to propose to my now wife. He made an exception to make a cruise and pull together his crew just for this special day. He did everything in his power to make this day as memorable as possible. I can't... More

My wife and I had a great time. Captain Dave really took great care of us, he was very attentive to us. He was able to "capture the moment" I was looking for. Needless to say my wife and I will be planning another date during the summer months.

My wife and I had the opportunity to have a wonderful sunset cruise aboard the Black Watch. The Black Watch is a beautiful ship and Captain Dave was awesome. My wife and I just sat on the bow and watched a beautiful sunset while Captain Dave made sure our glasses were full, the food was served in an elegant fashion,... More

What an amazing experience right in our own back yard! Captain Dave is incredibly personable and made our evening fun and special. We would highly recommend Black Watch and the sunset cruise to anyone who is looking for a truly peaceful and relaxing evening with phenomenal scenery! Thanks Captain Dave, we'll be repeat customers for sure!

Captain Dave was the BEST from the first time I contacted him throughout the entire sunset sail. He was available when needed to make reservations, ask questions, and nail down logistics. The sailboat is an amazing work of craftsmanship. The food he chose for the sunset cruise was delicious, well thought out, upscale and prepared by a wonderful restaurant in... More

From the moment he met us at the gate, it was a world class experience. The next two hours would be more than we could have ever imagined. Capt. Dave and Christian were amazing and made our first time sailing a night to remember. The service, weather, and smoothness of the boat was beyond comparison. We were sad when we... More

Along with 4 friends, we had a great dinner cruise on Lake Grapevine. Captain Dave treated us like family. The food was great, scenery beautiful; all on a spectacular sailboat. Highly recommend this for a relaxing evening.

For three peaceful hours, my husband and I were treated to a delightfully romantic experience. Even though we were only minutes from home we felt like we had been transported to an entirely different world. From the time Captain Dave greeted us at the gate until we sailed back into the harbor we were treated to a glimpse of how... More

I surprised my husband with a private sailboat charter for his 40th birthday, and we had a wonderful night. The food was excellent, and the sail was so beautiful and relaxing. It is amazing that you can be only 10 minutes from your house, and the hustle and bustle of the city, and feel like you are a million miles... More
