San Juan Islands Sailing Charter Rates

We offer two booking options for our 6-day San Juan Islands sailing charters:

1. Join-a-Cruise Charters – reserve your private stateroom and we will fill the other cabins on the boat
2. Private Charters – form your own group of up to six guests and have exclusive use of Northwind

Details and rates shown below.

Join-a-Cruise Charters: San Juan Islands (6 days)

Our exclusive Join-a-Cruise charters allow you to reserve a private stateroom (or two) and then we fill the other cabins on the boat. This is a great way to meet other fun couples while enjoying the islands. Join a cruise charters are generally scheduled around the last week of each month, but as those weeks fill up we often open additional weeks. Northwind is a large sailing yacht, so you will never feel crowded by other guests and you will never have to share a bathroom with other passengers or crew as each cabin has its own private bathroom area. You must be an adult to join these trips.

If you can fill the boat with six people, then you benefit from a discount which is reflected in 6 person rate option.
