Great time!
, Jun 2022
Loved sitting on the front of the boat was fun! Great view! They offered cold drinks! Very nice and they let us take a tour of the downstairs quarters of the boat!
Great ride
, May 2022
Great ride— my husband and i enjoyed the peacefulness…we will definitely do this again, thank you for a great trip
, Mar 2022
I have to agree with a couple of the other reviews….not much more than just a slow motor boat ride down the river. Randy, the pilot could have made it a little more interesting with some interaction…..some music with speakers outside at the least. Thank goodness the weather was good!! Will not do this trip again. Sorry I took company on the trip…should have tried it first on our own.
Find a different sailing tour if you really want to SAIL.
, Mar 2022
I was very much looking forward to this excursion but it really fell short. They really shouldn't market it as a sailing excursion if all they do is motor up and down the Halifax without putting the sails up. It was a gorgeous day to be on the water! The conditions were clear and good for sailing, so it wasn't a matter of risk. Just lazy.
Girls trip and sail
, Mar 2022
I booked this trip for our girls trip and it was our absolute favorite! The crew was great and the ride on the Halifax was gorgeous and relaxing! Captain Randy was great! Would book again.
Great experience!

Was a great experience! Randy is the man!! Doesn’t get any better! Thanks Viator! That boat was great too!
False Advertising
, Dec 2021
The captain was polite and the water was beautiful. However, we registered for this excursion because it said ,"jump into the water" and "swim" but when we asked about jumping into the water, we were told we couldn't do that for insurance reasons. We registered for this sail specifically to swim and spend time in the water. They should correct their description since it is misleading.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Sorry that you were mislead. “We” do not advertise for swimming anywhere. Sometimes a third party will advertise and change our description without notifying us. We will try and correct that. Thank you!
A day on the Halifax

When the sail was unfurled, listening to the music, the warm air and sun. The waves, and the champagne.

Very relaxing day on the water. I recommend this excursion. The captain was very informative on when and where to meet and met some new friends on the journey
Sister's Birthday Celebration
, Aug 2021
We were celebrating my Sister's 50th birthday with just the 6 of family members. My sister, brother in law, husband, others, and I had a blast. Randy was so nice and cordial. He communicated with me beforehand regarding what we can bring on like beer and sandwiches and such. We brought our own small cooler, but they provide a cooler with water and sodas. My sister said best birthday ever.
Pleasant, peaceful and enjoyable
, Jun 2021
The Howling Owl sailing tour was awesome. It was a great way to start one of our morning vacation days. We had a beautiful day, not to hot, for sailing on the inter-coastal waterway. The captain and his mate were very friendly and made it a pleasant experience.
, Jun 2021
Rescheduled due to weather. Then canceled due to weather.cost us a Lyft ride there and back. Not good
, Jun 2021
This couldn't be any easier. Cpt Randy and crew were very nice. Perfect for kids over 8 us old and perfect for people who don't get on the water a lot. Easy to find, easy to book, easy to do. 5-10 minutes by car from most of the beach side hotel resorts on Atlantic Dr.

Peaceful & Clean

A very peaceful and pleasant boat ride. The captain was nice. It was great to lay on the front of the boat and watch the water. A restaurant is nearby as well for a meal after the ride.

Nice, smooth ride. The boat operators were excellent and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!!!
