Charter | Lease | Rent

Chartering a boat has become very popular for many. It's convenient and allows individuals to cruise Puget Sound, the San Juan Islands and the Canadian Gulf Islands in style without the stress and cost burden of ownership. Most charter companies will offer bareboat (no crew) and/or crewed charters. Different charter or rental option include leasing or timeshare program, daily or hourly rentals, public & private skippered charters, personal craft rentals and other unique options.
