Current Specials - ONE WEEK TO GO!

Longer charter discount special for the 2010/2011 season - up to 25% off!

Our current long charter discounts have been very popular as they reward longer charter and as with any holiday, it takes more than a day or two to unwind and begin to truly relax and the beauty of the Sounds is there is always somewhere new and unexplored or a favourite old haunt to tuck in to.

This offer is only valid with charters booked during our Economy Season (from now until the 21st of October - Labour Weekend) So you can book your 2010/2011 summer charter now and get this great deal. It rewards the early bookers with as much as 25% off their summer charter.

We already have a number of confirmed bookings for the Christmas / New Year period so its time to start planning so you don't miss out and remember to include your 'last charter date' on the booking form so we can deduct your 10% - the only discount available through the New Year period... Click here to read more.
