Research

Charter a boat and crew for your marine research or science project in Puget Sound or the San Juan Islands. 

Our boats have been designed and built to be adaptable to the type of work that needs to be done. If you have a project that needs a specific boat or setup it is likely that we can build exactly what you need if we don't already have something that works. 

Just contact us with what you need.
