Guest Services

When staying on this boat, guests will have the captain at their service, if they wish, to take them through the surrounding islands. Guests can hire the Captain to take them through the islands, to a place to eat, to see the sunset, or to just have fun and relax. This wonderful boat allows guests to relax on the flybridge with a glass of wine and a good book, for ultimate comfort and relaxation. Everyone describes their most enjoyable time is sitting in the wicker furniture on the flybridge taking in the night view, but most importantly the quite. Then they talk about the stars.

As of 2018, guests also have the option to have a dinner cooked for them on the boat while out on the water. Chef Leonard, a masterchef—and quite the entertainer!—will prepare an unforgettable meal for guests, whether for a special night, an anniversary, a birthday, a proposal, or simply a great time to remember. Guests must book this in advance with the hosts. Net proceeds for the meal will go to the youth ministry at River Community Church.

Additional Information

Guests are welcome to ask the captain if he would like help driving the boat. Though it maneuvers wonderfully, being a 36-foot Albin Classic Trawler, it is heavy, so an extra hand would make a big difference. You can drive it, take the line off when leaving and then when you get back making the boat fast to the dock.

For American holidays—Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day—there will be an extra charge and minimum night stay of two nights.
