A beautifully restored Gulfstar ketch. She is 60 feet overall and boasts an enclosed and heated cockpit for those early spring and late fall 'spirited' sails.Tastefully appointed down below with teak and brass she offers three double staterooms with an optional bunk in the VIP cabin. The main salon is exquisitely outfitted with new upholstery on the seven foot sofa, and a dining room table that seats seven. Surround sound stereo, television, VCR, and the navigation station round out the interior. There are two 'heads' each with its own separate shower, sink, mirrors and monogrammed linen. The 'galley' consists of a three burner range with oven, microwave, refrigerator, freezer, china, crystal, and all of the cooking toys and gadgets to prepare the gourmet cuisine offered on our cruises. Each of the staterooms offer thick comfortable berths with drawers below, hanging lockers, mirrors, and linen.
Forced air heat and air conditioning to maintain a comfortable environment independent of the sometimes inclement weather associated with the Pacific Northwest. Plenty of hot water and a crew attentive to your every need ensure a relaxing and fun filled adventure into the remote and beautiful islands of Puget Sound. The owner and operator of the vessel has been licensed by the United States Coast Guard for the last 20+ years. Fun loving, but with a serious eye for vessel and crew safety, he is eager to flash a smile at any opportunity.
Our cruises are designed with you in mind. Unlike the big cruise ships, we listen to your needs and desires when planning your optimum sailing adventure on Puget Sound. Whether you are interested in pure sailing or instruction, sightseeing, whale watching, or a romantic interlude with a loved one, we work with you from the itinerary of destinations to the gourmet meals offered onboard. Imagine cruising the beautiful San Juan Islands and dropping anchor in a different secluded cove every evening, swapping sea stories and marvelling at the amount of stars in the sky!
Kayaking is becoming increasingly popular among our clients. We offer the latest designs in sea kayaks. All of our kayaks are single person ocean kayaks and are surprisingly stable and responsive. Double kayaks are available upon request.
Pre planned routes include Lake Union, which is home to thousands of boats and floating homes; Blake Island, the birth place of Chief Sealth (Seattle's namesake) which is unique in its beauty and absence of commercial building and growth; and Deception Pass for the more adventurous paddler with currents to 7 knots, whirlpools, tide rips and incred ible scenery.
The San Juan islands are also very popular with many people. Instruction and tips are provided as well as a guide to insure your safety and enjoyment. Whether it is an all day tour or a few hours every afternoon, we offer a very comfortable 'base camp' to start and end your adventure.
Cruises are designed for one or two couples who are known to each other and are comfortable with each others company. Three couple cruises are available upon request if everyone is 'very' comfortable with each others company. We have found that people who know each other have more rewarding vacations than strangers who have to go through the "learning" curve of acquaintance.
Prices vary based upon your particular desires and needs for your vacation. There are seasonal discounts offered at times and multiple day discounts as well.
Whether you are looking for a week or a day sail, enjoy your sailing adventure to its fullest.
A fine spring day on the Puget Sound.
