"Sailing isn’t just another way to get around—it grants you access to places, communities, and experiences that other travelers often miss." -- AFAR magazine
We only charter newer yachts, larger than necessary for the number of crew (8-10). These are not passive, 'catered to' cruises. The rates are dependent on active crew members who are willing to help with everything from tossing a mooring line to washing dishes, depending upon one's talents. You should be comfortable in a small group setting, in good health and fit enough to climb in and out of small rubber dinghies.
The rates are per person, shared. Most cabins are doubles,
although I choose yachts with split or bunk-bed style berths
to accommodate solo crew members. Because we take fewer crew than the maximum capacity of the yacht, it is usually possible for someone to have their own cabin for less than the full cabin rate.
Not all cabins are equal, so rates may vary slightly.
The rate covers all boating expenses-- there are no "kitties", mooring or port fees, fuel surcharges, or other surprises. It also includes most (simple) meals and beverages aboard, although we often eat dinner ashore.
Transportation to the starting marina. Any on-shore activities, excursions, tourist taxes, or park fees.
There is a $250 refundable deposit against any damage which may be caused.
You can reserve a place with a $500 deposit, refundable if we are able to fill your spot from the wait list. Payment in full will be due three months before the sail date. Payments can be made by PayPal, Venmo, or check:
