​Sail along the Atlantic coast with us on the S.V. Ava Grace.  See dolphins frolic as we cruise through the Intracoastal Waterway or watch pelicans glide across the open sea in the Atlantic.  You can also enjoy the glorious sky while we navigate the Cape Fear River during a sunset sail.  Along the way, Captain Peter "Pete" Bombar will share information about the N.C. coast, its waterways, marine life, and other local lore as he takes the helm of our lovely 36-foot Hunter Quest sailing vessel.

Captain Pete is a USCG licensed professional and holds a OUPV Merchant Mariner credential with Radar Observer Unlimited and Towing endorsements.  He is also an established navigator and has course completion credentials in both coastal and celestial navigation.  His interest in using a sextant and compass comes from "old school" training.  

Captain Pete enjoys acquiring knowledge on ecology, history, and the wildlife of the North Carolina coast.  He is happy to discuss sailing, navigation, radar, sea life, and anything else you might want to learn.  Or... just sit back and enjoy the experience.

​ Come sail, relax, and enjoy an amazing experience not found on land.
