My husband and I enjoyed our day sail trip around the San Juans. Very relaxing with a friendly, laid back crew. If you want to help raise the sails, you can, if you just want to sit around you can. It was really nice that...More

An evening sailing cruise turned into a special adventure when we encountered Humpback whales and then Orcas. Mt. Baker was one of the views opposite the sunset, with Orcas in-between. The crew was professional and just as excited as we were.

We booked the "Spike Africa" as a must do on our San Juan Island vacation. It was a super day to be out on the ocean. There wasn't much wind, so really going at a clip didn't happen. This did not matter as it was...More
