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 grandsons will never forget the experience and plan on learning to sail when we... More

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

My wife found this cruise online and booked a late morning 2 hour cruise. Captain Dave was an excellent host and I was impressed by the history of the the Black Watch Sailing boat. It's a piece of history unlike any other. My wife thought it was great. She kept asking about other types of cruises on the Black Watch.... More

I knew from the first conversation with Captain Dave it was going to be a great experience. He was very informative, friendly and very quick to answer any questions and help you make the evening perfect. I set this up for a birthday present and it exceeded my expectations. We brought our own assortment of food and wine. Captain Dave... More

Captain Dave gave us a tour of the boat and explained all about it as we took sail. We brought our food and beverages and Captain Dave took... More

We celebrated my father's 75th birthday on the Black Watch and the experience was outstanding. The boat is absolutely beautiful and Captain Dave is an amazing host. We brought a cooler with snacks and drinks and Captain Dave plated and served everything for us. He (and his crewmate, Lex) were also very adept at getting my older parents safely aboard... More
