 Team Building/Corporate Retreats

Looking for a fun way to build camaraderie and teamwork? Put your
employees all in the same boat and learn to sail and maneuver a 160 foot schooner. Everyone on board begins the sail by working together to hoist up the Zodiac’s 4000 square foot mainsail and then breaks into small groups for instruction on specific sailing stations. As your crew work side by side to sail the ship they can experience how communication and coordination are essential to success. The sailing exercise can be followed up with a seminar down in the ship’s classic salon or sunset cocktail party on deck.

Weddings, Rehearsal Dinners, Celebrations of Life

Combine your celebration with an unforgettable sailing adventure. The Zodiac is an idyllic location for an intimate wedding ceremony at anchor on Chuckanut Bay or a pre-wedding dinner or cocktail party under sail. The ship also frequently hosts celebrations of life and ash spreading services in the San Juan Islands. A classic 1920’s sailing yacht’s 127 feet of deck adorned with varnished mahogany and polished brass is a beautiful setting for any ceremony.

Recreational Charters for Clubs, School Groups and Seniors

Interactive and empowering day sails can be tailor made for any group and are senior friendly. Spend a full day windjamming through the San Juan Islands or have a picnic lunch on deck in a secluded inlet. All of our day sails include optional sailing instruction and meals can be included as well. The possibilities are endless, all with the exquisite backdrop of the islands, the Salish Sea and Mt. Baker.

Overnight Cruises

For the daily charter rate of $4250 the Zodiac can be booked for private overnight adventures in the San Juan Islands. The package rate includes lodging for up to 26 passengers and all meals prepared fresh by the ship’s professional chef. Itineraries and anchorages are fully customizable and optional sailing instruction is included for all passengers. Shore visits, brewery and winery tours, hikes, kayaking, crabbing and wildlife viewing can be incorporated into your private escape into the San Juan Islands. A multi-day cruise is a perfect setting for a family reunion, board and company retreats, or club adventure.

All charter itineraries are subject to the captain’s approval and subject to change if weather or safety is an issue. Despite these circumstances, the crew of the Zodiac will always endeavor to give our passengers a fun filled and unforgettable experience.

Standard charter rates apply to sailings from the Zodiac’s dock in Bellingham, WA. Sailings from other ports will be subject to dead head and port fees.
