We have sailed on larger schooners out of the New England area so we decided to sail the OBX with Captain Dan and Katherine (who also is a captain) on the 41’ Gulf Star with our friends. We felt the price was worth having the opportunity to share the experience of sailing in a personal setting versus being just another... More

My wife booked this for me as a birthday gift. We couldn't have asked for a better time. Dan and Katherine were both great hosts and a wealth of local knowledge. The small setting made it even more enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in seeing a different side of the Outer Banks along with some of... More

Dan and Katherine gave us an amazing experience! We booked this tour for my boyfriend's birthday and chose to go with the Sea Scape because of the exclusive tours and the price. Nowhere else on the Outer Banks can you get a private tour for three hours at this price! We didn't know exactly what to expect as neither my... More

Crew very friendly, tentative to our needs. They were very informative to the history in the area. We had a great time and the weather was great.

My sister and I chartered Seascape for a sunset sail in the Roanoke sound. The crew Dan and Katherine went out of their way to make the cruise a lovely experience. We saw dolphins and a lovely sunset cruising along the coast. This seems to be the most logical way to see the shoreline as they pointed out all the... More

I and my son and daughter had an amazing sunset cruise. We were constantly surrounded by porpoise. The Captain and First Mate, Dan and Katherine, were excellent hosts and provided an enormous amount of local information.

Our family wanted a unique way to help my husband celebrate his 60th birthday.Our sailing experience couldn't have been more perfect! Dan and Katherine warmly welcomed us from the moment we met them. They pointed out landmarks of interest along the way and each aspect of sailing was explained as we made our way into the sound. The weather cooperated... More

Just returned from a week long vacation at outer banks and the private sunset sailing was uniamously the highlight of the trip, I think partly because six of us (three couples) decided to leave the kids with grandparents and made this an adults night out, the boat can only accomodate six people regarding age. Dan and Katherine were easy to... More

My girlfriend and I highly recommend this trip! Especially for anyone new to sailing (or boating in general)! This was my fourth time on a boat (ever!), but the most intimate of my experiences in any body of water. Our guides--Katherine and Capt. Dan--were very hospitable, possessed a great sense of the area, and expressed an admirable love for sailing.... More
