Coastal Weather

The weather this year was great, but the months that stand out for having exceptional weather were May, September and October. These are also probably some of the best times to be along the coast witness the diversity of wildlife. Early May in the Charlottes is spectacular, as the Humpbacks have just come over from Hawaii in large numbers and are feeding in the rich waters. Bird migrations are taking place in May and the sun seems to shine more consistently. Book before December 31st on your 2009 departure and take advantage of our 2008 prices!
