While trying a new adventure in OBX, we decided to go out of pirate's marina for the sunset cruise and enjoy a meal at the grill works after. The captain and crew were charming, interactive, and this proved to be something we will repeat on...More

Well...the boat was immaculate and the deck staff excellent. The captain took us out about an hour and promptly got us stuck on a sandbar for about 15-20 minutes. Most of us didn’t catch anything, but a few kids caught some little fish that made...More

We went out on the Crystal Dawn in late September 2017. Never would have booked it if I knew we would travel one hour out and one hour back to fish for bait. This was not a fishing trip. Only one person on the entire...More
