For the past two summers, we have been sharing our love of the water, great food and our passion for people gathering and enjoying time with family and friends.  We hosted ABBA inspired dance parties, quiet romantic anniversary celebrations, and a 30 year reunion of college friends.  Regardless of the occasion, Gertrude has provided countless memories for our guests and crew. 

During these uncertain times, we have decided to take this season to weather the storm.  As a result, we will not be offering Charters for 2020.  We are looking forward to getting back on the water in 2021 and celebrating every special occasion with you.

Stay safe
