The dates of our Charters are at the convenience of the clients schedule, weather, and previous commitments. Reasons for this unique experience are many. Typical Charters favor sunset sails and afternoon parties. Our scheduling usually allows our clients the freedom to extend their party on a moments notice. The bottom line is that we are flexible!
