My family was in the Outer Banks for a wedding. We came down for a short weekend and I booked the sailing trip as a graduation present for my boyfriend. We had no idea what to expect, but we WERE NOT disappointed! Katherine and Dan were fabulous hosts and captains! We boarded the ship, were given a quick tour and... More

As seasoned sailors we thought it would be a great surprise to sail with our son and his family on the OBX. It was a beautiful day with a gentle breeze taking the ketch up to almost 6 knots on a reach. My son and I took our turns at the helm bring back fond memories of years ago. Our... More

We reserved the SeaScape for a sunset cruise the evening of my girlfriend's birthday - six of us plus Katherine and Dan (crew). Ship was easy to find and both Katherine and Dan were wonderful hosts. Its a completely private and customized experience. They are expert sailers and really tailor the experience to you and your wishes. The views are... More

My girlfriend chartered Sail the Outer Banks for my birthday. As the date approached the forecast wasn't promising. Katherine got in touch with us and discussed alternatives should the weather be bad. Fortunately, the forecast was wrong and the weather was perfect! Katherine and Dan were excellent hosts and did everything they could to make our trip special...including decorating for... More

Making the reservation was very easy. Katherine responded to my email immediately and was very friendly. Prior to our trip, she provided great details and answered all our questions. The trip itself was truly memorable. This was the first time my parents and I had been on a sailboat. Katherine and Dan explained what they were doing, how things worked,... More

I had been planning to propose to my girlfriend at the top of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on one of their night climbs in front of the "super" moon to culminate our weekend in the Outer Banks. I had also come across Sail the Outer Banks and thought a sunset cruise would be a great thing to do on Friday to... More

I had friends visiting from out of state and we decided to do an afternoon sailing excursion on the Sea Scape. I highly recommend this to visitors and locals alike. It's a fantastic value for three hours of sailing (on your own private, skippered sailboat!) The boat is large and comfortable (and yes ladies, it has bathrooms!). Katherine and Dan... More

We highly recommend a sunset cruise with Katherine and Dan! The boat is beautiful and Katherine and Dan make you feel right at home. They were very accommodating and their knowledge of sailing was amazing. We had a wonderful, relaxing time. The highlight of our Outer Banks vacation!

Our family of four was looking forward to this evening sail and EVERYONE came away happy. Rare. The boat is lovely, Dan and Katherine are professional and warm, accommodating and knowledgeable. We were giddy during our picnic dinner and then dessert while sitting on the bow watching the sun rays beam onto the water. Grown ups were able to have... More
