Hemmingway’s secret becomes evident as soon as you board the BLACK WATCH. As the sails are hoisted, daily stresses slip away with the wind. Start your day off smiling with a sunrise sail. Bring your colleagues for a unique lunch experience or corporate team building. Finish your day with a romantic sunset sail.

Special occasions become more special: Birthdays, Proposals, Intimate Weddings, Anniversaries... or just a surprise get-away.

Whatever the occasion, the Captain and Crew of the BLACK WATCH vow to make your sailing cruise a memorable adventure.
