My closest friend booked this tour as my Christmas present last year. Ten months later (and a hurricane approaching) Katherine and Dan still took us out. The weather didn't give us the sunset we had hoped however Dan and Katherine made up for it. We both got to take the wheel and learned so much about sailing. They both took... More

Katherine and Dan are the best! We have enjoyed sailing with them on a private sunset sail charter, and they are both knowledgeable sailors and excellent hosts. And you can't beat the beautiful views and the smell of salt air! If you are visiting the Outer Banks, make a trip to Manteo to enjoy their hospitality on this gorgeous sailboat... More

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
