Experience the culinary bounty of the San Juan Islands while enjoying October’s stiff breezes in the Zodiac’s sails. This autumn tour of the islands focuses on the local producers in the islands. Passengers will visit local farms and markets. We will talk with farmers about the conditions and environment in the islands that provide the local harvest. The Zodiac’s chef will feature Whatcom and Island County grown and raised provisions in the meals served from the ship’s galley. The ship will also make a visit to Westcott Bay Ciders and Distillery to sample the delicious cider and spirits produced in the San Juan Islands.
As on all of the Zodiac’s trips, passengers will be given sailing instruction, be taught basic navigation and stand watch at the ship ’s helm to steer the ship under the crew’s supervision. While at secluded anchorages there will be many opportunities to explore by kayak and hike on islands that are only accessible by private boat or charter vessel. Autumn winds make for the best sailing of the season and our guests will not be disappointed with a fall weekend in the beautiful San Juan Islands.
Cruise Highlights Include:
- 3-days and 2-nights exploring the San Juan Islands
- Sail training aboard a classic 160 foot tall ship
- Meals cooked from the ship’s galley featuring local produced ingredients

Part of the adventure of sailing is that wind and tide may alter your course. For this reason the Zodiac may deviate from it's intended route at the captain's discretion. Bearing this in mind, the captain and crew will always endeavor to give passengers the most incredible experience possible.
