Special Occasions are meant to be celebrated!

Hundreds of celebrations of all kinds have been held aboard Nomad.  Sailing along the Santa Cruz coast is a private, beautiful, fun way to celebrate with friends, family, or just that one special person.  Because every charter is private, you get the flexibility of bringing any food or beverages you want.  If our standard posted time slots do not fit your needs, we can create a custom booking for you over the phone.

Feel free to bring flowers or other (non-permanent) decorations if you want to add to the ambience of your occasion. Please consider that under sail, decorations could be splashed, or blown away.

Want to outsource the food for your charter?

If you are coming from out of town and are wondering about food options, The Buttery ( is one of our favorite places to pick up baked goods, sandwiches, soups, etc.  Or contact Reef Dog Deli for chef-crafted delicious food to go.

With one week’s notice we can provide a sumptuous charcuterie board with cheeses, crackers and sliced meats.

Graduation Celebrations
Wedding proposals
Anniversaries, Bachelorette Parties, etc

No weird hat or long ceremony required.  Bring your friends and family and relax, knowing you are done with tests and research papers.

Our captains and crew are happy to help you with your surprise.  If you book within two days advance notice we can connect you with the captain if you want to have them collaborate with you.

As with all special occasions, Nomad Charters specializes in working with our customers to create an experience that fits your situation. 

“A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance, and tenacity. The order varies for any given year.” — Paul Sweeney

“Our wedding was many years ago. The celebration continues to this day.” — Gene Perret

Many times the best gift is not an object but a shared experience. Nomad Charters can provide a meaningful gift that will never end up in the landfill but in your memories forever.
