One of the best things we did on our recent trip to New Bern was take a sunset sail with Les and Susan. Even though the weather forecast had been horrible all week we went ahead and booked a Friday sail. Susan was very prompt in letting us know that if the weather was truly bad she would let us...

Les and his wife were fantastic. Very interesting and kind couple. The sailboat and river are beautiful. We didn't want the trip to end! Must do for everyone....even two pregnant ladies and their husbands.

The sunset sail was the most memorable part of our time in NC (and we did a lot). My husband and I enjoyed the quiet calm of the river (even with our four teenage girls aboard). The kids loved sitting up front and taking pictures. The owners are kind, welcoming and knowledgeable. This is a must if visiting New Bern.

Les and Suanne were so nice and very informative. I was signed up for Thursday and due to the high winds, they cancelled and moved me to Friday evening. I boat was beautifully maintained and clean. They offered refreshments, included and sailed into an outstanding sunset. Couldn't have been more pleased.

We really enjoyed our sail with Les and Susanne! They are extremely friendly folk who have a way of "personalizing" the trip by sharing their knowledge of sailing as well as the many adventures they have experienced on their boat. You won't be a stranger long! You can sit back and enjoy the cruise or take part in the operation.... More

We had a wonderful time sailing with Les & Suzanne today! What a relaxing way to spend the afternoon.

Must do activity- We would definitely recommend... More
