Charters are available year-round, but we strongly recommend that you book well in advance. The yachts we charter are some of the most popular and sought-after in the islands, and tend to be reserved up to a year in advance. Please contact us at your earliest convenience to get your preferred dates of travel.

For our Private Journey trips, you choose your own group and your preferred dates—there are no set departure dates. Private Journeys are available to groups as few as two people or as large as you like. Contact us for availability, questions, or to book your adventure!

Fuel Surcharges

Because the prices published for our program are set so far in advance of the trip dates, we are occasionally faced with exceptional cost fluctuations due to increase in fuel costs that affect the actual cost of running the trip. In most years, no price changes are necessary. However, we do reserve the right to raise or lower the trip price if there is a significant change in costs. If this is the case, your final invoice will reflect the difference in trip cost.
