My party was not happy with this "Sunday Brunch Cruise". The "cruise" wasn't a cruise at all. The boat traveled no more than a mile from the doc where we where anchored so that a few people could swim. I was told there was no swimming on this cruise so did not bring swim suit and therefore had to literally sweat my butt off while a few people went swimming for half of the 2 hour "cruise". If the boat isn't moving there is not a breeze to cool off. Talked to other people on the boat and they felt the same way as well. The staff was not very friendly (except for Captain Mike who was friendly, Mike you need to get a new gig) The cook making the omelettes was very rude, not sure if this is the caterer that they always use but he acted like he was doing us a favor. While cleaning up he made such a racket we couldn't hear ourselves talk. I could have saved myself $60 and stayed on the doc in the shade and would have enjoyed myself more. Do your self a favor and use a different company.

Awesome experience! We had our wedding on the boat and I could not quit telling people how great this team was to work with! They were very accommodating and really wanted to make our wedding as easy and perfect as possible. They said "yes" to all our ideas and even had suggestions of their own. Everyone loved the wedding and it was the perfect place for our special day. :) Couldn't be happier.

As the receptionist and general administrative support for Derse Exhibits, I had the privilege of coordinating a dinner cruise with BigDCats to recognize the tenure of our seasoned employees. While I am new to Derse and did not personally attend the dinner cruise, I certainly felt like I was there just from listing to all the stories afterwards. More than a week after the event people are still talking about what a wonderful time they had & they hope that we do it again next year! Captain Mike and the crew went above and beyond to see to every need of those in attendance; from the delicious dinner catered by Blue Mesa, the bartender hosting to our guests, the blackjack table that kept guests engaged as they tried their hand at poker, shooting guns at a floating target and hitting golf balls off the back of the boat, to just lounging and relaxing as they took in the beautiful scenery that Lake Lewisville has to offer while the sails of the Chamonix II billowed in the breeze carrying our valued employees into the setting sun. Memories were made and possibly even a new tradition! And to make an already wonderful experience even better, Gina was a true delight to work with and always made herself available for any question I might've had, and there were plenty but she always had an answer and did so with a smile! I would highly recommend BigDCats for any company or family event where you’re looking for something off the beaten path and want to be sure everything goes off without a hitch! To quote one of our more tenured employees, “…it was one of the best Derse functions in my 18 years with the company!” Thank you Captain Mike, crew, and Gina!

We have had so many people tell us that this was the best wedding they have ever been to and we have to agree!!! Everything went smoothly even with the rain, we could not have had a more picture perfect wedding! Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you again soon! JD and Stacy

THE PHONE NUMBER ON THEIR ON-LINE BROCHURE IS INCORRECT. PLEASE DO NOT CALL IT. I DO NOT HAVE THE TIME NOR AM I GETTING PAID TO DO BOOKING OR CALL ROUTING FOR THEM. IF YOU DO CALL PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT A RETURN CALL. I NOTIFIED THEM BY PHONE AND E-MAIL AND WAS BLOWN OFF. SO FAR HIS WEEK THERE HAS BEEN 6 CALLS FOR RESERVATIONS AND ONE FOR CATERING INFO THAT NEVER GOT ANSWERED.

We book a cruise with Big D Cats annually because they always go above and beyond to make sure our event is top notch! Once again, Captain Mike and Crew were outstanding hosts and very accommodating to our group’s needs. We had 75+ people aboard and everyone truly enjoyed themselves. Thank you again for another great experience!

We have used The Chamonix II for three of our client events and Captain Mike and the Crew have always been great hosts. This is by far our clients favorite event and something we also really enjoy. As an event coordinator, this is one of my easiest events to plan, the staff is great to work with and catering with Blue Mesa is so easy! We were hit by a big thunder/rain storm during our September cruise and the crew handled it so well. It was quite an adventure, but our clients were well taken care of. They even provided everyone with a stylish trash bag rain jacket for the walk to the parking lot! Thanks again Captain Mike and the Crew.

Just sailed February 10, 2013 for the third time in past five months. It was an amazing experience as usual. The food was good. The crew is amazing. The catamaran is beautiful and Captain Mike is wonderful. They have a lot of special pricing for events, check it out and see what fits your budget. You can rent for a private event as well. As a travel agent I have used a lot of different services and Big D Cats is most accommodating. There are just not enough adjectives to describe it. If you haven't sailed with them yet..... well what are you waiting for? Tell them I sent ya..

ISAF Sailing World Cup Qingdao (October 14-18, 2014) is just one of many events that see the eyes of the sailing world shift focus on China. Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, Qingdao International Sailing Week, Qingdao International Marine Festival, the Extreme Sailing Series and the Volvo Ocean Race have all passed through the venue, highlighting the sport to the local community and across China. 

How beautiful is this place, guys?!?
