We went on this cruise during our trip to Ocracoke. It was fantastic!! It was a relatively inexpensive activity to do on the island. Captain Rob was an excellent host. We were even lucky enough to have dolphins come up and jump out of the water near the boat. My daughter could help out in raising the sails, and do some hands on things. Our family really enjoyed this.

We went out on the sunset cruise onboard the 2 masted schnooner "Windfall" while vacationing on Ocracoke Island, NC. What a great evening! The "Windfall" sails for 1 hr 15 minutes around Ocracoke Inlet, leaving at 7:15 PM. The most beautiful sunset! We watched as the light came on in the Ocracoke Lighthouse just before dark. If you have kids, this is great and a must do. The Captain lets the kids "help" raise the sails and lets anyone who would like, steer the ship. Take your camera! My son had such a great time and is still talking about his "Pirate Ship". They have red sails and fly a pirate flag. The best historian on Ocracoke is the captain. For $30 each, it's the best deal on the island as far as we are concerned.
