We had 9 ladies who took the sunset cruise this evening and it was wonderful. Although we arrived 30 minutes early as instructed when booking the trip, communications got mixed up with their staff and we ended up waiting at the dock for 25 minutes or more prior to their showing up to take us out, we enjoyed our cruise...

I booked a wreck/bottom fishing trip on the Country Girl for my Father in Law and myself on our recent trip to Nags Head. We were originally booked for a Friday trip but the wind was blowing pretty well so they had to postpone us, luckily only for 1 day. We left the dock and started on our way, after... More

3 of us, all avid fisherman, did a morning trip on the crystal dawn in late September. The captain and first mate were fun and full of info. The boat is open and spacious. We used our own fishing equipment as usually headboat equipment is not the greatest and is used and abused. We landed a lot of fish, mainly... More

My wife & I got married in the Outer Banks on 5-10-13. We've taken the Sunset Cruise several times while on vacation and its well worth it. This year we decided to pay for a private cruise to have all of our family & friends with us the night before the wedding. I must say, everyone enjoyed it and haven't... More

I have been fishing with Captain Al on The Country Girl for the past nine years. I drive from Washington, DC to the OBX just to fish on The Country Girl. Captain Al truly knows how to put you on the fish. Every trip I've been on we always maxed out. Captain Al is not a clock watcher. He's never... More

A friend and I took the half-day cruise on the Crystal Dawn in mid-July 2012. Although we didn't catch any fish, the mates and the captain were very friendly and sought to make it entertaining. We had booked two spots on the boat on a Monday for the next Thursday; however, when we showed up at the appointed time (6:45... More
