Catering, wine, drinks and flowers seperate charge. Children must be age appropriate. We like to keep the experience very special and limit the number of quests to 6.  Children under 5 are inappropriate for sailing charters but are fine for Motoryacht charters at the descretion of the Captain for their health and safety reasons. Please call Capt. Jack to discuss children under 5.

 

Call  Capt. Jack ahead so that we can plan the perfect half or full day charter. 860-227-2339
