I went out on this boat (the Crystal Dawn) many moons ago as a kid, and I stumbled upon her again on my recent vacation down here in Nags Head. In fact, I went out on her twice this time. Wonderful boat with a very friendly Captain and mates. The first day out was with my brother in law, and... More

Well...we didn't catch anything...hence the title, but nevertheless it was a beautiful day to be out on the water. Be advised, that unlike some other "party boats" at other places, this one has no air conditioned inner cabin....if you're heat sensitive. Anyways, great crew...got to see some beautiful scenery, and for 45 bucks for about 5 hours on a nice... More

My friends and I went on a fishing trip on the Crystal Dawn a few days ago. We all knew the type of boat we were booking. We knew that we could either pay somewhere around $120 to$150 per person for the charter boat that spends the whole day on the waters fishing (which, by the way, we usually do)... More

Nice boat ride . Fishing not good...captain has no control of that. If you need an inside air conditioned area not available on this boat. Shaded area. Very hot.

Fun trip with Cpt Al and mates! Go on the wreck fishing trip early in the summer season for the best catch!

Typical headboat trip in the sense that you putt around the bay- fish for 10-20 minutes-pick up and move for 20 minutes...fish for 10-20 minutes...wash, rinse repeat. Fishing was not great until the end (leave them happy with the old secret can't miss spot)...but nothing very memorable was caught. The ship mates were very helpful, energetic and polite. All-in-all, if... More

We went out on the Crystal Dawn headboat to watch the 4th of July fireworks in Manteo. We positioned ourselves on the upper level at the front of the boat. It was like our own cruise ship! The space was so comfortable, and the captain was funny and joking with us a lot. All the staff on the boat were... More

It was a beautiful evening cruise with amazing sunset. Captain Mike and Mate Amanda were awesome. Everybody had a great time, you can bring your cooler with snacks and drinks or buy them on the boat. This is a must when you are in OBX.

This is the second year we did Crystal Dawn fishing trip. Well with the money! Staff is great, particularly Chase. Also, the ride is beautiful. Both me and my son have caught 4-5 fish each year. Highly recommend!

I booked a trip on the Country Girl to go fishing for Sea Bass. We spent way more time boating from place to place than we did actually fishing. When we did get into some good numbers, the fish had to be thrown back because they were not a legal species. I ended up with 6 legal Sea Bass, and... More
