Enjoy a holistic outdoors experience in the San Juan Islands aboard the historic tall ship the Schooner Zodiac. Passengers and Crew join together to raise the largest main sail on the west coast of the United States. The Zodiac will sail north to Echo Bay on Sucia Island and anchor for the night. Passengers can explore the beautiful surroundings by kayak or hike along the beaches.

Day two will feature a sail down President’s Channel and an afternoon shore visit to the historic village of Roche Harbor on San Juan Island. As evening approaches, the Zodiac will head across to the secluded anchorage of Reid Harbor for a classic on deck BBQ where passengers and crew can compare stories of their sailing adventures.

Day three  will be spent meandering back through the center of the islands on the return to Bellingham. You’ll be able to put your new sailing skills to work and feel as if you are a member of the Zodiac’s crew! The ship will return to its dock at 3pm.

“Our 3-day trip through the San Juan islands was absolutely fantastic! Considering the very brisk winds on day 1, and also how important passenger involvement is for hoisting and dousing the enormous sails, I was extremely impressed with how much we actually sailed (rather than motoring). This is no boring leisure cruise — it is an adventure!’
