Rob and his crew were amazing to my family on our sunset cruise! He was friendly, told great stories about the island and Blackbeard, and shared funny pirate jokes with the kids. The sunset was amazing! Don’t miss this trip!

What a cool way to see Ocracoke, from the inlet in a schooner with just 5 people aboard. We took an afternoon hour and a half trip and it was beautiful, informative and relaxing.

Perfect way to spend the evening. Rob and his first mate son Emmett were delightful. This was our third sail and it will be part of each trip in the future. A great value in our opinion. High quality experience.
