We went out sailing today with Dustin. The day was beautiful; the water was so clear; the wind was perfect; the sailboat was agile and quick; and our guide Dustin was an absolute delight! We will definitely keep this on the top of our list of things to do in Wrightsville Beach!

As long ago retired enthusiasts, we had regaled our son (Chris) with the joys of sailing for nearly thirty years. Of course, he discounted our exuberance as the musings of boring old people. And then we introduced him and our daughter-in-law (Steph) to Captain Frye. On a perfect Wrightsville Beach morning we boarded the J80 and Dustin immediately took our son under his wing. He asked Chris what he knew about sailing (nothing) and what he would like to learn (everything). After about 30 minutes of basic training and maneuvering demonstrations Capt. Frye had Chris with the tiller in one hand and the mainsail in the other. We sailed the bay and the inlet for a couple of hours of practice and then out into the Atlantic to tackle some rollers and a solid breeze. After about an hour of rail-in-the-water excitement we turned toward home. Chris is inspired. Steph is saying, "we need to buy a boat". Now they both want to learn all that they can about the "art" of sailing. All that has been said about Capt. Frye above is absolutely accurate. He is most professional, exceptionally knowledgeable and very personable. Our family had a wonderful time with Captain Frye and we highly recommend his services to all of our friends. Your family would love sailing with him too!

We were looking for a sailing cruise in Wrightsville Beach and discovered Wrightsville Performance Sailing. We took a two hour bay cruise to the edge of the sea and was very impressed with all aspects of the event. We felt very safe and comfortable on what was a very nice sail boat. The Captain was professional and knowledgable and tailored the trip to fit our needs. This has to be one of the most fun things to do in Wrightsville Beach and we will be planning another trip with them the next time we go there.

We went sailing on graduation weekend with the whole family. The boat was impressively large with ample room for everyone & spotlessly clean. The life preservers were not the orange ones that hug your neck which is so uncomfortable but instead a blue vest, a much better fit too. The captain was excellent at navigating the boat. We sailed with the wind up the inlet, out towards the sea and came back just at sunset. The ambiance between the narrated tour, the music, and the weather was perfect . We highly recommend this fun outing.
