Having the opportunity to meet and sail with Capt. Dave aboard the immaculate Black Watch is something you need to experience personally. The Black Watch is absolutely gorgeous! I felt it more as an honor that he would share such a awesome treasure of old world charm such as this sailing vessel with us. He really makes you feel at home the entire time from the first to the last minute you are with him. This is not a job for him this is his life long passion. He makes it look so easy. Our first sail with Capt Dave was very impromptu and one which we will never forget. However I can tell you that the next ones will not be so unplanned. Dave we can't thank you enough for an awesome experience! You can count on sailing with us again soon.

My wife and I shared our 2nd cruise on our 2nd anniversary aboard Black Watch with Captain Dave. I must say, this will definitely have to be an annual event! We had opted for the Romantic Dinner Cruise and enjoyed a delightful 4 course meal followed by a relaxing and unforgettable sunset sail. This experience was just as we remembered from last year. The food was exquisite and well thought out. The boat was pristine with beautiful teak accents and high polished bright work. It is very apparent how much time and attention to detail Captain Dave places into the event in preparations for the cruise. The sail itself was amazing. My wife and I were nestled on the bow to enjoy the warm breeze and watch the sun slowly set on Lake Grapevine. Believe it or not, Lake Grapevine offers spectacular sunsets. I was absolutely shocked how beautiful the sunset was with its orange and pink hues. This is something you MUST experience for yourself! If you are looking to do something outside the box, this is it! Don't hesitate, give Captain Dave a call, and he will take care of the rest for you!!!

Captain Dave, his crew member Weston, and the Black Watch provided me an opportunity to wow my husband for our anniversary celebration. This was an evening that we will remember forever. From the welcome to the goodbye everything was topnotch. We had a four course Italian dinner that you would expect at a high-end restaurant. The views of the lake and especially the sunset were AMAZING! Thanks so much for having us and giving us a wonderful anniversary celebration. My husband said the next day that he doesn't know how I could top it next year...we will have to come back.

What a wonderful experience!! Captain Dave worked with me for several weeks to pinpoint best date and time for myself and my new fiance. I had this set up as a post proposal celebration which provided a very gorgeous sunset view from Lake Grapevine with a mouth savouring 4 course meal. Highly recommended for any type of celebration either with your significant other, client gift, anniversaries, birthday surprise, etc. Looking forward to the next sail!!!

The Blackwatch Sailing experience is a little piece of heaven right here on earth! I cannot begin to tell you what you're missing out on if you have not had "the experience." My husband and I have waited for 2 years to sail with Captain Dave, and after finally pinning down the perfect time.....it was well worth the persistency. For an enchanted evening, you enjoy relaxation like never before, journey into other countries by talking to Captain Dave about all his exciting travels, dine on meals that are beyond 5 Star quality....and if you let your mind take you there...you are boat owners for a bit. Just imagine having an entire boat all to yourself and being pampered the entire time.....ahhhhhhhhhh :). From the wine, soft music, gourmet meal, privacy, and exquisite scenery inside the boat and the outside sunset....life just doesn't get any better. Some things you just gotta experience in life....and the Blackwatch Sail Romantic Dinner Cruise is one of them....
