We wanted to take our kids somewhere relaxing, Pacific Northwest breathtaking and different. My husband would love to sail and spend more time on the water but in the DC area, and with three active kids, it isn't logical. We found Captain Charlie by some fluke of internet searching and truly had a remarkable 3 day sailing adventure with our 6, 10 and 13 year old kids. From the personalized itinerary Charlie did for us, with equal amounts of sailing time, island hopping, kayak touring and a dinner out to the eventual docking in Victoria, BC, it was just fabulous. The sleeping arrangements were ideal and we felt like we were in our own B&B. Charlie is a wonderful chef and my kids still try and get me to recreate his famous french toast. Being disconnected from TV and phones was in and of itself grand but to play cards and other board games with the kids was a great treat. Charlie was essentially part of our family by the end - mainly because he was so endearing but did make himself equally as scarce before we indicated our interest in including him. We've gone on family trips to Europe, Costa Rica, Africa and all over the US and we all agree this was our best get away ever.
