Our 7 day and 6 Night standard charter package allows for an early morning check-out starting at 8am with most completed before lunch. Our new 7 day / 7 night charter option gives charterers a chance to expand their vacation by starting the afternoon before our standard charter giving the charter a full 7 nights. Our shortest charter, 4 day / 3 night package, available during the mid or low season or on short notice, permits guests enough time for a quick yet fulfilling getaway in the San Juan Islands.
