A FEW NOTES ABOUT ALASKA
Southeast Alaska is one of the last best places. It is wild, and empty and rugged. You’ll be traveling aboard Hopscotch into some of the most beautiful and remote places in North America. Our trips in Alaska are a little different than our San Juan Island Trips. Generally we will be traveling (Sailing or motoring) for between 6 and 10 hours each day through some of the most beautiful wilderness anywhere. But keep in mind that these can be “long days” on the water. With the long daylight hours there is still plenty of time for exploring anchorages by kayak, sup, and foot. It’s important to note that when on shore, you’ll be accompanied by Brendan. The wilderness is very real in Alaska, and hikes/walks/beach strolls all require someone with bear spray, and noise making devices.
Although early Summer (April - June) is historically the driest and most beautiful time of year in SE Alaska, the possibility of rough, rainy, and chilly weather is very real. We will do our best to still have a wonderful time and experience Alaska how she’s meant to be!
Once you step on board you'll have everything you need, and then some! Our charters are "All inclusive"...food, beverages (non alcoholic) gear, even some really good jokes from the Captain! Your trip includes 5 nights on-board Hopscotch, and two at a Juneau/Sitka/Petersburg (Beginning and End of trip) Hotel. Prices listed below do not include: items you purchase in port, crew gratuities, and any hard alcohol/wine/beer you wish to bring on-board with you.
In the charter industry, a 15-20% Crew Gratuity is customary for excellent service. If service is less than excellent we ask that you speak with us (it hasn’t happened yet!).

A note about payment
Adventures on board Hopscotch have been described by more than one guest as:
"The best vacation I have even had!"
Because we only offer a limited number of Charters every season, and we fill up early, we cannot "Confirm" your booking until you have made a deposit (50% of the cost of the Charter).
Here are a few things to know about booking your Hopscotch Adventure:
In order to secure and confirm your Charter, we require that you make a 50% deposit (of the price of your Charter) upon Booking.
Once you "Step on board" Hopscotch your experience is "All Inclusive". This means that we have you covered on Food, Drinks, and Gear (kayaks, boards, etc).
You are responsible for: Transportation to and from Hopscotch, any hard alcohol you wish to bring on board, crew gratuities, and any thing you wish to purchase while we are on shore.
On our San Juan Adventures, you are responsible for one "Dinner Out On the Town" on our fourth evening, in Friday Harbor. There are tons of amazing options in Friday Harbor!
In the Charter industry, if service was excellent, it is customary to leave a %15-20 Gratuity on the total cost of the Charter. If service was less than excellent, we ask that you speak with us about it.
These Conditions are subject to change, without notice, at any time.
