We have vacationed in OBX for many years, but this was our first sail tour. We considered other outfits through some of the rental and reservation sites we were familiar with in the area, however, decided to book this tour due to the great reviews, truly private charter and affordable price. My family of four chartered a Saturday day tour... More

Both Captains are knowledgeable about the area while providing so many interesting stories about the boat and themselves. They made certain that our daughter could pilot the boat while giving her insight about sailing requirements! it was a hot, beautiful evening out, leaving us with a wonderful... More

Our family of 6 and our dog Rex truly enjoyed this first class sailing experience. Dan and Katherine are such accommodating hosts, and they are very friendly. They both gave very informative rundowns on the trip itself, the mechanics of sailing, and the island/sound. Everyone aboard had the opportunity to take the wheel under Dan's guidance. It's very relaxed. As... More

We loved this sailing adventure! The couple that runs the boat are very accommodating. They will let you sail the boat! The wife did crafts with our kids so we could enjoy some time on the boat. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting something fun and family friendly!

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
