Our private sail was a family affair -- my husband, my two adult daughters, my 87-year-old mother, and me. On the way home at the end of our vacation, it was unanimous that this was by far our favorite activity of the entire trip. None of us had sailed before, but we were immediately put at ease by the warm... More

We were able to bring food and drinks on board which was a great plus. Dan and Katherine were SO genuine and helpful- we felt comfortable immediately. The weather was perfect and... More

I booked a private sailing for my girlfriend and me as I wanted to surprise her with something special. I was a bit concerned because I had not sailed before but it was smooth and Katherine and Dan made us feel very comfortable and are a great source of information; it was as if we were sailing with friends.

We hadn't ever been to OBX before nor had we been sailing. Our sunset sail was definitely romantic and picture perfect. Dan and Katherine are very thoughtful, genuine, and professional. Definitely not the average excursion company! We highly recommend sailing with them and our first time will definitely not be our last.

We began with a tour through the whole vessel, which was a gorgeous wooden 1973 sailboat fully equipped with galley, bedrooms, a head (of course), and the owners, Dan and Katherine, who are both licensed captains who know the sound inside out. They shared piloting the boat with us and I spent about a half hour behind the wheel myself.... More

Our family sailed with Dan and Katherine. They were both knowledgeable and made my family feel very welcome. The duration of the sail was a decent amount of time and as an added bonus everyone enjoyed seeing a family of dolphins diving into the sunset. I highly recommend this wonderful sailing duo for your next sunset sail.

Dan and Katharine were amazing co-conspirators for my suprise engagement. They graciously helped plan and execute my sunset engagement for my now fiance. The weather was supposed to be bad and they kept me updated regarding the status of the trip the entire day. When we arrived I was stunned by their friendliness. They gave us a tour of the... More
