on a custom charter
Nothing can compare to the freedom and flexibility of a custom Alaska charter. We'll cruise through pristine waterways aboard the Maggie Sea, our 40' cabin cruiser, with unparalleled access to fjords, glaciers, ancient rainforests, whales, and other wildlife. There is simply no better way to experience and enjoy the Alaskan wilderness.
We are almost completely booked for our 2023 charters
It was a proud moment for us when our daughter Maggie graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School with flying colors. She has always been a great student, and seeing her walk up the stage to receive her honors stole our hearts. We know that Maggie is destined for great things. And sure enough, she has been accepted at the prestigious University of Glasgow—a dream come true for our little scholar!
When we heard the news, of course we had to celebrate—with some Scottish whisky! We raised our glasses to our bright, focused daughter. As parents, we couldn't be more excited for Maggie. But of course, moving to Scotland will be a big change for her. We plan to get her off to a good start. We'll help her move into her new housing, even if that means flying across the pond. It's the least we can do for our little genius.
You should know that the Maggie Sea (our 40’ custom cabin cruiser) was named for Maggie herself. Yes, our little girl has always had a love for the sea, and that's why we named our boat for her. But now that Maggie is setting sail on a new adventure that involves books and essays instead of life vests and fishing nets, we won’t be scheduling charters while we’re in Scotland.
That doesn't mean the Maggie Sea is going anywhere. Our beautiful boat will await our return to Alaska. But while we're in Scotland, our focus will be on supporting Maggie as she begins this exciting new chapter in her life.
So, here's to Maggie, our witty, independent, and adventurous daughter, and soon a proud student at the University of Glasgow. We love you, kiddo! We can't wait to see what you'll accomplish next.
