What a wonderful experience to sail on a beautiful vintage sailing yacht. Captain Dave and crew made us feel so welcome. My husband and I and our 5 year old son went sailing in the morning and it was a great time. I just wanted a unique experience and that is exactly what it was. Peaceful, relaxing and unique. Afterwards,... More

My Brothers and I took my father for his 81st birthday for this cruise and Captain Dave was AWESOME. We had a wonderful experience. Captain Dave prepared our snacks for us and made sure we were having a great time. This was an experience that will always be treasured. THANKS SO MUCH CAPTAIN DAVE!!!!!

Loved everything about our sunrise sail with Captain Dave and the Black Watch. My husband and I were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and wanted something different to do. This was a truly unique and very romantic experience. Captain Dave is awesome and I highly recommend taking a sail on the Black Watch.

My wife surprised me with this adventure and I loved it. Just outstanding! I highly recommend this charter for any couple needing a quick get-away and time together. Captain Dave and his crew (Tammy) were very nice and friendly and the boat was beautiful and very well maintained.

My friends took me onto beautiful Black Watch for my birthday. It was the best birthday party I have ever had. The boat was built in Hong Kong in the early 1920s. We were all amazed by how well maintained the boat has been. Captain Dave warmly greeted us at the end of the floating bridge. We boarded the boat... More

If you're looking for an awesome way to experience the lake, see a sunset, and have just an all around mazing time, then look no further than Captain Dave and Black Watch Sailing. My wife and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary recently and it was for definitely a very memorable one. Captain Dave takes hospitality and service to the... More

The Black Watch is so much fun that my family and I returned to sail with Captain Dave within a month. Whether a couple, a family or entertaining others, the Sunset Cruise is a wonderful evening. The boat is impeccable, the crew is professional and the tranquility and views make for a one of a kind escape. Hands down the... More

This 2 hour long sunset cruise, launching from the Silver Lakes Marina near the Gaylord Hotel and on the 8-mile-long Lake Grapevine, was terrific fun for the whole family. The 38-foot yacht had plenty of room for 5 adult passengers and 2 crew. Bring your camera - even your camera phone - and your sea legs! My husband and I... More

My first time sailing was not a disappointment by any means. I found this little gem last minute online and fortunately Captain Dave had one spot available for my husband and myself on a morning sail July 18th. The weather was perfect for sailing but not as perfect as the experience itself. The craftsmanship of the Black Watch is impeccable... More
