What could be more indulgent than brining a private chef aboard your private yacht charter for the ultimate dinner cruise, brunch cruise or lunch cruise?
After booking, our galley crew will work with you to create the perfect custom 4-course menu for your event. Whether you want pasta and shellfish, grilled fillet or something more veggie, our chefs have got you covered.
Choose the boat that’s right for you and your guests. Once you’re booked, we’ll send you a menu order form which you can either fill out or forward to your guests to ensure we meet everyone’s personal needs.
Our dinner cruises pick you up at the vessel’s local home port and gently cruise nearby inland waterways. Depending on the vessel and sea conditions, you may even get a taste of the ocean.
If you’re looking for something more sporty, you might want to try one of our Coastal Cruises.
