Sail the San Juans

August 10 -17, 2014

We had a wonderful Adventure on our cruise through the beautiful San Juans followed by the local gathering and festivities of the PNW weekend.

There is nothing like cruising the San Juan Islands.  Bordering Canada, at the top of Washington state, they are beautiful fur and hemlock covered islands that have you thinking you are cruising an alpine lake.  Each island has its own charms from remote Sucia, to upscale Roche, to friendly Friday.  With amazing island trails, fun towns, tall ships, inns and orcas, this is a unique cruising opportunity.

This Adventure has no long offshore passages, just a gentle tree scented cruise through forest islands.  A great way to introduce your partner to the joys of cruising.  Our fun, pro skippers are there to guide and teach.

PNW Weekend, Our San Juans cruise coincides with the famous Pacific Northwest Weekend.  We cruise around paradise including a mid-week stop at the remote Sucia Island for a beach bbq/acoustic music jam, with the PNW’s local sailing fleet.  Friday night we roll up to the big weekend event at Cap Sante and enjoy it through Sunday am.

Have your own boat in the PNW?  Great, join us!  Click Here for local PNW event info.

Travel …
We’ve arranged sleepaboard on the yachts the night of the 10th which allows guest to arrive anytime they like after 2pm.  Boats must return to the base by noon on the 17th.  Base is at the top of Fidalgo Island (Anacortes Area).  Seattle airport code is SEA.  The runs shuttles from the side door of the airport to Old Salts, a block from the base.  It’s a beautiful drive 😉

Everyone works together on Adventure Voyages.  To the extent that you are able … you help with lines, fenders, hoisting, helming, trimming, navigation, mooring, anchoring, etc. Anything you would like to learn, your skipper is there to teach.  And if you eat and don’t cook, you ought’ be good at dishes.  

We are fired up to do some PNW Adventuring and learning with great people.  Our blissful cruise ’round the San Juan islands will make memories to last a lifetime.
