Overview

Experience the magic of a beautiful summer evening on the Puget Sound for a unique, personal and memorable sailing excursion aboard S/V Far Niente, a Westsail 42 sailing yacht . "Arrive as Strangers, Leave as Friends" is what we promise. Departing from beautiful Bell Harbor marina on the downtown Seattle waterfront, join the crew for a 4 1/2-hour sunset sailing cruise. Your voyage will take you across Elliott Bay to scenic Blakely Harbor on Bainbridge Island, where we'll anchor for the sunset and enjoy gourmet hors d'oeuvres and wine from Ray's Boathouse. Special touches will make you feel like old friends getting together for an evening to remember. A perfect way to celebrate special occasions.
