My husband arranged a trip as an early Valentine's Day gift. From the moment we met Captain Dave, he made us feel welcome and special. For two hours, we were spoiled as he brought us snacks and champagne as we relaxed on his beautiful boat. Thanks for the wonderful day - we will definitely be back!

Seems cliche to say, but it was a beautiful cruise! My wife and I enjoyed a beautiful afternoon on the Black Watch sailing around Grapevine Lake. Everything you would expect and more. Captain Dave is a great host sailor - will be back again and again.

My husband and I love the lake and watching the sunset so I Googled "cruise Lake Grapevine" to see what was available for a surprise cruise for my husbands birthday. I called a few places whose prices were ridiculous before finding Black Watch. I called and Captain Dave answered. To my surprise and relief the cruises he mentioned were affordable... More

I have raved about this experience to all of my friends and family! I hired Capt Dave/ Blackwatch for a private dinner to celebrate my boyfriends 40th birthday. It was incredibly classy! Capt Dave educated us about the sailboat and how it ended up right here in Grapevine. My boyfriend was speechless and blown away at the details that were... More

We knew Grapevine was a great weekend escape for several reasons -- adult beverages and shopping assumed to be at the top of our (prior) list. But, discovering the oh so nearness of the surprisingly large & picturesque Lake Grapevine (on the shores of the wonderful Gaylord Grapevine Resort) and the availability of chartered sailing on a beautiful and historic...
