Get ready for adventure

We take you, family and friends, up to ten persons all together, along with our Captain and Mate on a trip of a lifetime, with destinations in Oregon on the Columbia River, Washington in the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands, and even Alaska to see glaciers.  

The San Juan Islands are a beautiful region of unspoiled nature where you can find abundant wildlife, epic views, calm winds and water, and plenty of room to anchor and enjoy yourself.  You will love shore excursions  to hike through old growth forests and discover hidden bays and winding trails that very few have had the pleasure to enjoy. There is an entire planet of ocean out there for those inclined to explore it, and not much of that is inaccessible to Zephyr. We can, with enough advance notice, take you on a voyage that will rival any other expedition out there. The horizon is unlimited. 

Bring your camera, binoculars, some all weather clothing, sunglasses and a strong sense of adventure; you never know what you might run into. We see eagles, orcas, seals, sea lions and porpoises. Grab one of our kayaks and a paddle and head out around the bend, watch out for the tidal current, and look for sea birds diving in the rips. Maybe if the season is on, we can help you drop a crab pot and bring up dinner. We serve home-cooked favorites, locally sourced, from our family recipe book, three plentiful and nutritious meals a day plus well deserved snacks. Guests rave about Zephyr's comfortable and clean accommodations.

Please note: Zephyr is a tobacco and drug free zone, no exceptions. Well behaved children 13 years of age and older are welcome.  Guests are welcome to bring their favorite adult beverages to drink in moderation. Guests who abuse this will have their charters ended early with no refunds. 


 Zephyr Charter pricing in the San Juan Islands, Puget Sound, and Hood Canal for the 2019 season are as follows:  $1500 per day/night for up to four guests. Additional guests are $250 per day/night up to a maximum of ten guests total. A full boat is $3000/day. 

Two day/night minimum, but most groups wish they could stay for a third or more. This includes all fuel for Zephyr and our skiff, meals and cooking by our crew, soft drinks, bedding, towels etc. Alcohol is BYOB.  

A deposit of 50% of the total charter is due upon booking. The balance is due 14 days prior to departure.  

Pricing does not include marina fees. We spend nights "on the hook" in anchorages, but a dock stay can be requested.
