We had a wonderful time even though it was cloudy and sunset was not spectacular. Captain Kim and mate Jen were so personable and made the trip fun for everyone on board. We learned not only about sailing but also about the Outer Banks. Well worth the money.

Nice you could bring your own small cooler with snacks and adult beverages! It was cloudy and windy when we went. Seems like everyone prepared for the weather. The sun did actually come out for sunset!! Loved seeing the OBX from a boat on the water!! They needed to have maybe a little lite music or something playing. Not for entertainment.

We had a delightful time. It was great being out on the water. Kim and Kim were knowledgeable hosts. Great for additional information about the whole area. We also had the pleasure of seeing two pairs of dolphins! Sunset was beautiful over the water. One of the best parts of our trip to Outer Banks.

We booked the sunset cruise, brought along a bottle of wine and enjoyed the view. It was everything we expected, dolphins jumping nearby, sails flapping above as we sailed around the sound. Worth the visit. Able and informative team.

Tim, the first mate, was top notch. Friendly and knowledgeable. Captain Kim was willing to answer all questions. Relaxing, fun experience.
