About Cadenza

Dedicated to private luxury cruises between Washington’s San Juan Islands and Alaska’s Glacier Bay
— History

It all started with a passion for cruising

Our family has enjoyed a lifetime of cruising, and we invite you to experience the same. Cadenza is available for charter in the Pacific Northwest waters year round. We generally move the boat north in June as we make our way up the Inside Passage. We love exploring Desolation Sound and the Broughtons. Stops in Ketchikan, Juneau, Glacier Bay and Sitka also provide exciting adventures. And there are no words to describe the beauty of Glacier Bay. Custom itineraries are built with each guest's priorities in mind.

Our mission is to provide a custom, intimate and comfortable adventure in the waters of your choosing.

— COmmitment to safety

We are committed to the highest levels of safety and comfort

Nordhavn builds amazing vessels, period. Their sea keeping ability is world renowned and unmatched. Cadenza was constructed with an “over and above” standard with an additional 10 tons of ballast, a large active wing stabilizing system, Kevlar ice sheathing, and Lexan storm windows. All main power and comfort systems have redundancy so your trip will never be interrupted by unexpected repairs.

We are dedicated to being the best charter in the Northwest

Our goal is to be sure your cruise exceeds your expectations. We plan your itinerary with your priorities in mind. We plan your layovers with as little or as much time as you’d like, so you can explore all the seaside villages (or none of them) at your own pace. Do you want a week of solitude? Can do. Interested in whales?  No problem. Glaciers? We know where they can be found. Fishing? Crabbing? Prawning? We have all the gear you'll ever need. You tell us what the perfect week looks like and, weather permitting, we’ll put you exactly where you want to be.
