What a perfect afternoon with Captain Rob! He is so personable, funny and pleasant. Can I give 10 stars?? Definitely gave us our money's worth and then some! If you are fortunate enough to experience him in a 1 1/2 hour private cruise as we did, you will have the best experience on the entire island!!! Even allowed us to do some sailing with his direction on calm waters...It was the highlight of our trip and I will remember Captain Rob for a very long time..an absolute must on your itinerary!

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!

Captain Rob and First Mate Mariah were wonderful hosts on our amazing, beautiful sunset sail. The Captain is so knowledgeable about Ocracoke, Blackbeard, and the area. My husband and I had an awesome experience; I even got the chance to take the wheel and learn some sailing tips. Many great photo opportunities. Would definitely recommend this excursion to anyone. Thank you Captain Rob and Mariah for a most enjoyable and memorable experience.

This was our first time sailing. Captain Rob made it so relaxing and interesting. He knows so much about the area, about Blackbeard and about sailing. He even let me take the wheel for a while and was very instructive. If you are in Ocracoke you need to take this cruise. Thank you so much Captain Rob.
