The sailing excursion was both relaxing and exciting, plus being very informative. We learned about the type of boat and its parts, the waters we traveled through, and other information about the area. My wife was allowed to steer for a while. We spent a nice Saturday afternoon on the water.

It was our 20th anniversary and my husband kept me in suspense until we arrived at the dock and met Dan and Katherine. What a surprise! He had booked a back to back sailing tour for just the two of us to come back at sunset. We had been on a sailboat 20 years ago on our honeymoon and this... More

My sisters and I enjoyed a sunset cruise hosted by Katherine and Dan on their gorgeous sailboat SeaScape. They showed us the sites around Manteo and were very informative about sailing in the Sound. We were SO lucky to have experienced a bonus "Dolphin Encounter" with them... Upwards of 20 Dolphins swam alongside and entertained us for over an hour!... More

This was our first experience on a sailboat. Dan and Katherine were very welcoming and informative in the ways of sailing and navigating the waterways. We were fortunate to have a beautiful evening, and they offered to let us help with the workings of the sailboat. One of our group actually piloted the ship with the help of Dan! The... More

Our family of 5 (kids age 15, 12, 10) were hosted by Katherine and Dan on their beautiful sailboat SeaScape for a sunset sail. We enjoyed eating our dinner on the gunwale while taking in the scenery and the fresh saltwater air while learning about the sailboat, sailing and the sights of the sound. We each had a turn behind... More

My family of 6 adults took a sunset sail with Captains Katherine and Dan on their 41 year old 41 ft sailboat in the sound between Roanoke Island and Nags Head. We had a great time and look forward to going out with them again on our next visit. Initially I emailed the week before to find out what evenings... More

There are many Cruises at the Manteo Waterfront including Sailboats, Dolphin Watching, Sunset Cruises and Motor Launches, that are fun for the entire family. Children and adults alike. On a cruise around Roanoke Island, we saw many of the fine hopes including the Estate of the late Andy Griffith.

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.
