Sailing Adventures like no other

Made Custom Just For You

In a changing world, we provide a safe, truly off-the-beaten-track opportunity to escape the crowds and control your own vacation environment.  Private, flexible itineraries in remote Alaska’s unspoiled ancient wilderness ensure that you won’t be traveling shoulder to shoulder with strangers on cookie-cutter trips.

Clients essentially do a complete buyout of our 46-foot sloop for their closest family and friends only.  Our charters are well suited for multigenerational family vacations because Alaska has something exciting for everyone from kids to grandparents. All of our trips are customized for you. 

Our Trips

You’ll explore at YOUR pace on an unspoiled frontier where a rich diversity of wildlife abounds before majestic vistas and where you can vacation sequestered in the real Southeast Alaska. Or, you can mix it up and stop in small settlements to immerse yourself in the rural “bush” culture far flung from the mainstream. There’s no better way to see Southeast Alaska than from the water.

“...had the time of our lives.”

“My husband Dave and I did a three-week charter with John and had the time of our lives. He planned a fantastic itinerary with a great mix of wildlife, scenery, and funky little towns. The boat was great, very comfortable with attention to the little details that made it great for the trip. And the food was fantastic! Highly, highly recommended.”
