They’ve arranged for TWO authors to join us: Michael Christie with his book Greenwood  and David Neiwert with his book Of Orcas and MenEach of these books is an immersive experience on their own, but together they’re positively magical. Prepare to be transported!

We are excited to announce our 2024 Selected Reads:
Greenwood by Michael Christie
Of Orcas and Men by David Neiwert

  • 3-days sailing and exploring the San Juan Islands
  • Navigational and Sail training aboard a classic tall ship
  • Delicious and hearty meals and snacks served from the ship’s galley
  • Visit amazing islands and explore by hiking or kayaking
  • Plenty of wildlife sightings including bald eagles, porpoises, seals and whales

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. Already booked and wondering what to pack? See our handy packing list.

“What an adventure! This is a hands-on experience! Duty rotations include chart room, helm, bow watch and messenger. And everyone helps to raise the sails. The captain and all-volunteer crew are fun and ever-watchful over their charges. No surprise here…good food and plenty of it for very hungry people….”
