Charter trips involve sharing a large charter yacht with fellow adventurers and offer the opportunity to explore exotic parts of the world while sharing the cost of the accommodations.

Upcoming Charter Trips  

  • San Juan Islands! August 2 - 11, 2018.

    We will be picking up three boats in Bellingham to explore the San Juan Islands! There isn't a lot of room on this trip and we expect the cabins to sell out quickly. We will not be booking group airfare. Everyone will book their own transportation and meet us in Bellingham, where we will have a hotel booked for one night. We will spend the next day shopping for provisions and preparing for the charter, staying on the boats one night before leaving to explore. Last time we did this trip we stopped at several beautiful anchorages and spent two nights in Victoria harbor. Wildlife is abundant, the scenery can't be beat, and there are some great out-of-the-way places to visit, have a drink, and enjoy local restaurants. Here are the photos from our 2012 San Juans trip! Total cost will be $2800 per cabin (members), $3300 per cabin (non-members), and includes the boats and hotel rooms! Dates are August 2 to August 11. The first deposit of $1400 will be due when you reserve your cabin, and the remaining $1400 will be due May 15. If you are interested, call Brandy or Matt and we'll be happy to answer questions about the trip. A sample itinerary is available here: San Juans 2018
