Luxury is something we all yearn for. So, what defines luxury? Is it time? Expensive possessions? Or perhaps experiences?
For many people around the world, chartering a yacht delivers one of the ultimate life experiences. Cruising on a vessel with a gleaming hull, the widespread ocean before you and nothing but time on your hands can be one of the most luxurious experiences imaginable. And as captain of your own boat, the experience becomes an immersive journey where you are in complete charge of your own destiny.
Adventurous souls who don’t own a yacht but are looking for a private yacht rental in the Pacific Northwest area for that luxury cruising experience, needn’t look any further. We here at NW Explorations, based in Bellingham, Washington, have both charters and flotillas and can’t wait to for you to experience a memorable sojourn. We run a range of trips and while booking well in advance is advisable, local charters are still available for 2018. Here’s a few reasons to book your trip today!
We have a wide range of luxury yachts for charter by manufacturers like Grand Banks, DeFever, Fleming, Kadey-Krogen and Sabre. Vessels range in length from 38 – 58 feet and are freshly varnished, with accommodations ranging from 1 – 3 cabins, immaculate interiors and notable luxuries like fluffy duvets and ensuites. Our guests are always pleased to know that each yacht must pass our rigorous 18-page checklist ensuring near-perfect condition before they begin their voyage.
Check out our website for a full list of feature specs and virtual tours for nearly every one of our charter yachts.
The Pacific Northwest: how sweet it is. Beyond Bellingham, the San Juan Islands and north past Vancouver Island all the way up to Alaska with its mighty glaciers, all provide gorgeous jaw-dropping seascapes and landscapes to explore. Navigating your private yacht rental around this region can’t define luxury more succinctly.
Imagine spotting an orca whale as it breaches or a pod making its way across the waters. It’s a common sight as there are three pods living year-round in the San Juan Islands, regarded as the best place in the world to see them. Visitors can also view humpbacks, minkes and even gray whales, as well as Steller sea lions, harbor seals, porpoise, bald eagles, and more.
Witness the calving of a glacier as it cracks down into the sea, and that powerful sight and sound will remain with you forever. A truly unbelievable force of nature, the glaciers of Alaska seen up close from your private luxury yacht rental provides a whole new realm to your world.
We’re innovative. We provide luxury experiences. We absolutely love boats. We are a privately owned, premier, full-service private yacht company based in Bellingham, Washington and provide 1-3 week long flotillas using charters to spectacular destinations in the Pacific Northwest including Alaska, Desolation Sound and the Gulf Islands. We here at NW Explorations also provides yacht brokerage, private charters, servicing and yacht maintenance, as well as 3-day powerboat courses, including women-only courses.
Grand Banks yachts are our specialty and we have them available for either charter or purchase. Our long-running highly-popular “Mother Goose” flotillas (since 2004) include a lead boat with a naturalist on board to enhance experiences.
No way. Anyone can still have an epic summer cruising experience with their own yacht rental. But to join one of our incredible flotilla experiences, book soon in order to secure your special space behind Mother Goose!
Desire even more luxury? We suggest you bring along chocolate and wine, or perhaps some champagne and caviar. Because every day on the water aboard your beautiful yacht rental cruising around the majestic Pacific Northwest is celebration-worthy.
