Private Family Charters

Bring your family or friends for a memorable adventure on our private boat with one of our experienced and knowledgeable captains!

Looking for something more personal for just your family? We offer an awesome variety of tour options for you and your family / companions (6 passengers maximum) on our 6-pack boat – the Rambler!

Whether it is fishing in the bay, Lighthouse viewing options, our Sightseeing/ Nature cruises, Puffin trips or something else – the Rambler will get you there with your own private captain in the comfort of our ‘fun boat.’ Trips offer morning or afternoon departures and each tour is geared toward making your time with us as wonderfully memorable as possible. The Rambler boat is a 27 foot Cape Horn with two new 150 HP Honda 4-stroke outboard motors and will get you where you need to be with ease! Ride along with our captain and experience Frenchman Bay and all the glory she has to offer on a personal, private trip.
