Downeast Rover charters leave from the Manteo Waterfront.
Join us for a memorable tour on the Roanoke Sound!
Before you plan your sailing charter, explore the ship! Take a look at the fun our guests and our crew are having as they cruise the Roanoke Sound from downtown Manteo. We love being able to share the beauty and perspective that sailing the open waters can give. Some of our guest have NEVER been aboard a sailboat before, so we make it our goal to provide a safe, enjoyable time for every passenger.
The Rover is a Coast-Guard inspected ship that is capable of holding twenty-five people with two crew members. You can learn more about the Sailboat here and the sailing crew here. Once you get familiar with all of our Outer Banks sailing options below, contact us to check availability and get out on the water!
