I have raved about this experience to all of my friends and family! I hired Capt Dave/ Blackwatch for a private dinner to celebrate my boyfriends 40th birthday. It was incredibly classy! Capt Dave educated us about the sailboat and how it ended up right here in Grapevine. My boyfriend was speechless and blown away at the details that were... More

We knew Grapevine was a great weekend escape for several reasons -- adult beverages and shopping assumed to be at the top of our (prior) list. But, discovering the oh so nearness of the surprisingly large & picturesque Lake Grapevine (on the shores of the wonderful Gaylord Grapevine Resort) and the availability of chartered sailing on a beautiful and historic...

I surprised my wife for our 29th anniversary celebration and it couldn't have been better. Captain Dave was great at communicating and preparing the details right up until the time that we boarded the boat. The meal was wonderful, the atmosphere was relaxed and peaceful, and the sunset sail was beautiful. We had a wonderful time together and Captain Dave... More

We sailed with Capt Dave and Weston for an early morning family reunion that was the most peaceful, relaxing time we have spent together in years! Thanks for the wonderful trip and the gracious Texas hospitality!

I surprised my husband for Father's Day and he loved this trip! We brought some wine, cheese, meat and crackers and Captain Dave served us as we sailed over the lake. We were lucky and the winds were perfect! We highly recommend it to everyone and will be back next time we were in the area!

Captain Dave was absolutely amazing! My husband has always dreamed about going out on a sailboat, but though that dream was dead after moving to Texas. Captain Dave provided the perfect way to celebrate our 20 year anniversary. He made us feel like celebrities for 2 hours. It was worth every penny and will remain in our hearts for years... More

Beautiful evening with family! I wanted to surprise my hubby and captain save was exceptional. He was able to sneak aboard our children and my husbands parents down below before I arrived with my husband. The evening was amazing and I would highly recommend this experience for everyone. It's top on my list!!

I took my girlfriend, now fiance, onto the Black Watch for an amazing Saturday afternoon on the lake. Captain Dave worked with me over the phone and email to make sure the day was absolutely spectacular. Captain Dave's situational awareness is perfect and he is an incredible host/entertainer/captain all-in-one and knows how to make the day special. I would recommend... More
