We were fortunate to have a beautiful evening, and they offered to let us help with the workings of the sailboat. One of our group actually piloted the ship with the help of Dan! The... More

Our family of 5 (kids age 15, 12, 10) were hosted by Katherine and Dan on their beautiful sailboat SeaScape for a sunset sail. We enjoyed eating our dinner on the gunwale while taking in the scenery and the fresh saltwater air while learning about the sailboat, sailing and the sights of the sound. We each had a turn behind... More

There are many Cruises at the Manteo Waterfront including Sailboats, Dolphin Watching, Sunset Cruises and Motor Launches, that are fun for the entire family. Children and adults alike. On a cruise around Roanoke Island, we saw many of the fine hopes including the Estate of the late Andy Griffith.

Overall a fantastic way to spend a... More

We have vacationed in OBX for many years, but this was our first sail tour. We considered other outfits through some of the rental and reservation sites we were familiar with in the area, however, decided to book this tour due to the great reviews, truly private charter and affordable price.

Our family of 6 and our dog Rex truly enjoyed this first class sailing experience. Dan and Katherine are such accommodating hosts, and they are very friendly. They both gave very informative rundowns on the trip itself, the mechanics of sailing, and the island/sound. Everyone aboard had the opportunity to take the wheel under Dan's guidance. It's very relaxed. As... More

We loved this sailing adventure! The couple that runs the boat are very accommodating. They will let you sail the boat! The wife did crafts with our kids so we could enjoy some time on the boat. I highly recommend this to anyone wanting something fun and family friendly!
