Charter Bundle

Save $1,900 on a 6-night/7-day Class and Charter Bundle

In celebration of our 45th Anniversary, we are offering this terrific opportunity to combine a 2-day boating class with a 5-day yacht charter, plus get other goodies, for a week-long boating vacation this summer.

There is no better way to start or build your bareboat charter experience and explore the San Juan Islands, Gulf Islands and Desolation Sound.

  • Your 2-day class will be aboard the same vessel as your 5-day charter and is tailored to your experience, your crew, and your charter yacht.
  • Due to instructor availability, only two charter bundles are available on each vessel so book soon to ensure that your preferred yacht and dates are available.
  • Additional charter nights and Cruise-N-Learn days may be added based on availability at additional cost.
  • In the spirit of our 45 year history, this Charter Bundle offer is only valid for 45 days – or until supplies last.
  • You may add up to two more adults in the class for a cost of $500 each (4 maximum per class).
