Welcome to the Kelly Allen, a 37 foot O'Day sloop. Go sailing with Captain Bob! Spend some time on the water! Experience two hours of quiet sailing on the Kelly Allen. We're at the dock next to Provision Company.

Capt. Bob and Dave were awesome. It was such a relaxing sail! Definitely worth the time to get out on the water. Capt. Bob was very knowledgable and Dave very accommodating. We will be back next Summer!

Great boat! Great company! Great price! Captain Bob can't control the weather but knows how to sail which is just as good. The slip is conveniently located for out of towners and anyone visiting from Carolina Beach down through Fort Fisher needs to go sailing...More

when we get started for the summer, we take people on a 2-hour sail. Hopefully we will be sailing next weekend. We do not offer a trip to Wilmington, as that would be an all day trip
