What an amazing Sunset cruise this was! It was so relaxing and entertaining from the moment we left the dock where the pelicans and seagulls were enjoying their treat from the local fisherman...to the dolphins that decided to give us a show as the sunset danced across the water... The Captain and his wife were perfectly enchanting while serving up appetizers and drinks they shared some local stories and history while we enjoyed the tour up the waterway.....A perfect night!

We had a fabulous cruise with Captain Axel and Patty. We’ve been coming to WB for 16 years but never saw the island the way they presented it. They are lovely hosts and the evening was just terrific. Highly recommend!

We decided to take a trip to Wrightsville to get away for a few days but wanted to do so safely due to COVID-19. Booking a private sunset cruise was a great way to spend our evening out on the water. The owners took safety precautions and were so sweet and showed us some beautiful views. The breeze was fantastic and we even had some tasty snacks and wine too. I highly recommend this if you are visiting Wrightsville Beach, it was absolutely perfect.

This is our second year doing a sunset cruise with Captain Axel and First Mate Patti. Absolutely wonderful experience both times. They have a maximum of six people on a cruise and do not mix groups—meaning that if your group consists of 4 people they won’t add two more outside your group. This allows for a much more personalized experience. They are also very flexible in the itinerary—we saw a group of dolphins cruising very close to our boat and the captain paused the cruise so that we could watch them.
Snacks and water/soda/beer/wine included in the price.
Highly recommend!

We booked the cruise for part of my Mom's 90th birthday celebration. Patti and Axel made this trip a very personal and memorable experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip from start to finish! There was a birthday banner as we boarded the boat, along with surprise cupcakes. Patti took pictures which she e-mailed to us later on which helped us to enjoy our trip further. My 5 year old niece was given binoculars so she could see the sights better. We were told that dolphins were only sighted 30% of the time. We personally think that Axel may have been chumming so my Mom could see some dolphins! We were all ecstatic when they showed up! From start to finish this was an exceptional trip! We highly recommend this cruise!

We had an amazing evening! The sangria, appetizers, and cupcakes were delicious. The sunset and scenery were beautiful. Captain Axel told stories about things I didn’t know as a 30+ year resident of Wilmington. Patti is the perfect hostess. This is a lovely way to spend a summer night!

I booked this trip as a birthday surprise for my husband. Patty and Captn Axel were a 10! From the very beginning to the very end, they were super attentive, friendly, and catering. We felt at ease and welcomed. Patty provided sangria and a lovely appetizer, and Captain was full of informative stories and charm. We brought dinner aboard ourselves, which Patty served while making sure our glasses were full. The couple is very familiar with the area and led us down the intracoastal waterway with confidence. We caught the best sunset and were sad when the trip came to an end. Oh! And added bonus- Patty graciously took over 100 pictures of us while on the cruise, and sent them to my personal cell later that evening. How great is that?? We will definitely book with them again!

We are fairly local and booked this to show our friends the area and it’s just lovely. The views, the boat, the drinks & treats but most of all the captain and first mate- you will relax, see a gorgeous sunset and get yo know the area, from the water. Would HIGHLY recommend!

My wife and I have done this twice with Captain Axel and Pattie. Late September 2019 before the pandemic and late July 2021. Aiming to do it a third time in early October! They are great hosts and make you feel at ease while you enjoy the sights. Comfortable boat seats and spacious room. We enjoyed the scenic areas including Landfall, that island that boats pull up to and seeing the houses around Motts Channel and South Harbor Island. Bring a camera and polarized sunglasses.

We had a wonderfully relaxing 2 hour sunset cruise aboard the La Dee Dah. With white sangria, chips and dip and smooth seas it was a perfect evening. Highly recommend to just breathe and enjoy!!
