We are proud to offer a special rate for two 5-day private artists' cruises in Prince William Sound aboard our 52-foot vessel, M/V NULIAQ with renowned classical watercolor art instructor Vladimir Zhikhartsev. Daily Classes will include demonstrations followed by individual help. There will also be time for exploring and fishing depending upon the desires of the group.
Space is limited to 5 individuals per trip. We will paint both on and off the boat as weather permits. Weather and travel times will determine our painting time and locations. Our schedule will be flexible and subject to change depending upon weather and the majority's wishes. Reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
ROOM & BOARD: Two staterooms are available (1 w/double and single bunk and 1 w/Queen bed). Both have full baths. The pilot house table also makes into an enclosed Queen-sized bed. Artists should plan to share a stateroom and/or bed. You might want to team up with a friend who would like to make the trip with you. We provide all bedding and all meals, which we try to keep light, nutritious and healthy (lots of seafood). We do provide homemade snacks and deserts, but don't provide junk food or hard liquor.
COST: Price for the 5-day trip is $2,400. based on double occupancy. A deposit of $1,000 per person due May 1, 2020 will reserve your space. Balance is due upon boarding the boat. At this time we are not equipped to take credit card payments. There will be a 10% cancellation fee up to May 20, 2020. After that, no refunds unless we fill your spot. Here is a link to the Registration Form.
COMMUNICATIONS: Cell service throughout the Sound is spotty. In an emergency we can travel to where a signal is available if necessary. In the bays where we anchor at night we typically do not have cell service due to the high surrounding terrain. We have plenty of outlets for charging your electronics.
