From the very first point of communication to the shaking of hands and parting of ways, Captain Dave and his crew are stellar to say the least. Captain Dave is an exceptionally personable person that creates a the perfect environment for a romantic night out with your loved one. The Black Watch is in pristine shape from keel to mast... More

Captain Dave was welcoming as he is knowledgeable and interesting. He gave us a history about the vessel and this we begin our sail. Grapevine Lake is beautiful and relaxing. The boat is stunning. Captain Dave went out of his way to accommodate his guests. I brought food and he beautifully arranged the food and served us wine. The fireworks... More

I took my husband here on a surprise anniversary date. He loves to sail but hasn't been in years. Captain Dave and his crew made this an experience neither of us will forget. It was amazing, the history of the ship, the hospitality, the beauty... I felt like we were royalty for a couple of hours. The only complaint I... More

Captain Dave of Black Watch Sailing Charters truly knows how to entertain and educate his guests. From the moment he greeted us at the dock he set the tone for one of most fun and relaxing evenings we've ever had. The yacht is beautiful and in pristine condition. We enjoyed hearing the history of the yacht and Captain Dave's experiences... More

This sailing adventure was not just a sunset sail; it was a truly AMAZING experience! From booking to sailing, it was a seamless process. Captain Dave returns calls and emails promptly and works hard to ensure that your cruising experience is customized to your expectations. When we arrived, he informed us that his boat was our own private yacht for... More

Sailing aboard the Blackwatch with Captain Dave was a fantastic experience, fun and relaxing. It was just like having our own sailing ship for an evening. My wife and I both took the wheel and steered the course across the lake, under the Captain's watchful eye. It was one of the most beautiful sunsets we had ever seen. Thanks, Captain... More

We set sail at 7 p.m. in mid-July. Probably should have waited until about 8 p.m. this time of year, but it was still delightful. Capt. Dave took time to tell us about the Black Watch and give us plenty of good instructions for getting around on the boat. We sat up front and just took in the beauty of... More

His passion for sailing and The Black Watch, a magnificent vessel that is meticulously maintained and full of historic charm, is contagious.

My husband surprised me with a dinner and sailboat ride for our 1st anniversary! It was AMAZING, from the dinner to the sunset. Captain Dave was very personable from the get go and made us feel right at home. Dinner was magnificent and after the sailing was great! Would definitely do this again!

Wanted to do a sunset cruise on Grapevine Lake with my son and daughter (who was visiting from out of town) and found Black Watch Sailing Charters. From the minute we walked to the boat with Captain Dave telling us the history of the boat I was so excited to see it. And then there it was, this beautiful sailing... More
