Private Charters - Affordable Option

If you have a group and would like to arrange a private pelagic trip, our boat is available on a large number of weekdays and some weekends this year (see our schedule for available weekends).  The starting price for a private birding charter from Hatteras is $1450 for up to 8 passengers.)  There is an incremental charge for additional passengers.  Private charters are a great option because they are minimally more expensive than a regular trip, and we can tailor the trip to focus on a variety of natural history encounters, not just birding.

2010 Charter Rates*

This year our rate is $1450 for 8 or less passengers for birding.  Additional passengers are only $100 each.  We can offer a better rate for student groups if there are more than ten people in the group.

                        "Make-Up" Trips*

  If you don't feel that you have enough people to charter the boat or you don't mind sharing the boat with a few other birders on a date not already scheduled for a pelagic birding trip, we can set up a "make-up" trip and add it to our list of pelagic birding trips.  These trips are "made-up" of interested parties.  The price per person for make-up trips in 2010 is $180, and we need an initial booking of four or more passengers to list the trip and a minimum of eight passengers to run it.
