What a cool way to see Ocracoke, from the inlet in a schooner with just 5 people aboard. We took an afternoon hour and a half trip and it was beautiful, informative and relaxing.

Had a great time today with captivating Ron. Very knowledgeable about sailing and the island. My wife and I have been coming to the island for 8 years and we're looking for something we hadn't done before. Would recommend this to anyone. Our first time sailing and got some great pics. Thanks Ron !! We'll see ya next year for sure

Perfect way to spend the evening. Rob and his first mate son Emmett were delightful. This was our third sail and it will be part of each trip in the future. A great value in our opinion. High quality experience.

We took our parents on the Windfall II to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. Captain Rob and his son Emmett could not have been more accommodating. We all had a great time not only enjoying the ride but also hearing some of Rob's sea stories and tidbits of information about the island. Such a special treat to spend some time on the water on an old-fashioned schooner with beautiful sails!

We've sailed on all of Captain Rob's sailboats from the original Windfall to Windfall II and the Wilma Lee and have fully enjoyed the experience all times. Captain Rob is a great story teller and historian, and his mates are fun and top notch. It's great to watch the team work, turn-about and sail in all types of winds. We learned some great history of Ocracoke while sailing with these guys and saw some incredible sunsets, but also you have a spectacular view of Silver Lake, Ocracoke Lighthouse, the port, ships, sailing vessels, birds, islands ... the works. You will love it.
