Join other women sailors (and women who want to become sailors), on this fun and exciting cruise aboard the historic tall ship Schooner Zodiac!

The Zodiac will embark on an empowering three-day excursion into the San Juan Islands. Our female crew members will demonstrate and supervise sail maneuvers. Passengers can raise the largest working mainsail on the west coast and take their turn at the helm of this 160 ft, 147-ton vessel. The cruise is the perfect bonding experience for mothers and daughters or friends who are given the opportunity to both work together as a team and also relax, surrounded by the beauty of the San Juan Islands.

This is one of the Zodiac’s trips that feature no set itinerary. The ship will set out to find as much wind and adventure as possible throughout the San Juan Islands. The cruise will also include opportunities for passengers to go ashore, hike and kayak together in the ship’s double kayaks.

Each evening the ship will tuck into a secluded anchorage for passengers and crew to mingle during a happy hour featuring local beer, wine and craft cocktails in addition to hors d’oeurves. After enjoying aperitifs and comparing stories of the day’s adventures, dinner will be served each evening from the ship’s galley and everyone aboard can linger on deck as the sunsets over the San Juan Islands.

‘Just finished my second Nauti girls trip. We had a great time and met wonderful people. The crew was really up beat and patient with our learning and the ship is beautiful. The weather was warm and lovely and we even saw Orcas! This is a great trip for women who want to learn the basics of sailing. We had sisters, friends, couples, mother/ daughters and single women all working and playing together!’
