Private Charters 

Our state-of-the-art clean-energy, battery-powered vessel offers the perfect outdoor escape for family get-togethers, special occasions, business meetings and more! 

After months of staying at home, there is no better way to spend an afternoon or evening with those closest to you than on your own chartered vessel during a completely private cruise experience.

A range of food and beverage options are available. Plus, you can add an exciting program: Marine Life Study, Bird-Watching, Lighthouse and History tour, and more.
