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

The price you pay for the quality of service you're getting is a steal! Captn Dave and his crew mate Mike were attentive at all the right times, also knowing when to give my husband and I time together alone. We did a sunset sail from 6-8 and it was perfect, absolutely perfect. The boat is unlike any sailboat you... More

We took my mom on a Sunset dinner cruise aboard the Black Watch for her 60th birthday. Capt Dave really made our experience special, from the historical overview of the boat...to the 4-course Italian dinner...to the lovely sail on the lake while the sun set as our backdrop. He truly does make you feel like royalty during your event. You... More
