Picture lounging on the deck of a private yacht on a quiet morning, coffee in hand, surrounded by the stunning San Juan Islands. In the distance, you spot an orca breaching as the sun glints off the ocean water. It’s a summer dream trip.
You could live this dream. Yes, there’s still plenty of time to have an epic summer or early fall vacation just like this when you charter your own personal luxury yacht with NW Explorations.
Based in Bellingham, about two hours from Seattle, Washington, NW Explorations is a full-service, luxury yacht charter company that has been in the marine business for 14 years. We provide safe and professional expertise for all of our boat-loving guests.
It’s a simple way to have an unforgettable holiday with friends and family. NW Explorations’ highly trained staff have been teaching people how to become boating experts for more than 14 years. That’s just one of our many personal services, giving practical boating skills to people who love spending time on the water in a world-class charter yacht.
Depending on your experience level, getting familiar with the vessel can take as little as an hour or as long as you like until you’re feeling ready to cast off the dock. It’s all about having a custom experience on your luxury yacht. You get to choose whether you want to charter your own boat, or you can opt to hire a captain. With one of NW Exploration’s captains at the helm, you can sit back, relax on the deck in the sun, enjoy a hike on one of the San Juan Islands, or take in the pretty coastal views as you explore Desolation Sound in British Columbia, Canada.
Each of the 18 luxury yachts in our charter fleet are expertly maintained. The two largest of our vessels are an impressive 58 feet long with three beautiful cabins to sleep six. The contemporary and comfortable master staterooms have queen beds. The private yachts are typically equipped with an office, surround sound, big screen TVs and large open kitchen, just right for cooking the crab or fish you might have caught that day.
The mid-size charter yachts range from 42 to 46 feet and the smallest is 38 feet. Each has a full galley kitchen and plenty of other modern amenities, showers and some even have laundry facilities.
