Skippered Bareboat Charters

Hiring a skipper is a wonderful way to increase the enjoyment of your bare-boat package! All our pre-screened skippers have a wealth of local knowledge which can help provide you a lifetime of memories.

Our captains are all U.S. Coast Guard licensed captains with extensive experience aboard Nordic Tugs. By adding a captain to your trip you gain the local knowledge of the waters you will be traveling. Whether you are looking for a secluded cove or spectacular wildlife our captains know where to find it and will get you there safely.

Many guests choose to add a skipper to their charter package as an instructor. These first class vessels are all single propeller vessels and have substantial weight. Hire a captain to teach vessel characteristics and to gain local experience so they can skipper it themselves in the future.
