My wife and I were the only ones on the boat with the captain on a beautiful afternoon sail . Weather was perfect for sailing - sunny , good wind and perfect temperature , just make sure you bring some sunscreen if you don't have any hair :-)
The captain was great , the boat was nice and the trip around a bunch of the islands was really cool . Definitely worth the price and I would go again if we're ever back on Orcas Island .

Lovely sunset cruise. We would do it again in a heartbeat. If you like, bring appetizers. The Captain made the whole beautiful trip even better with his local knowledge.

What a treat this was to take a boat out for an evening sail. Another couple also booked which was fine, we enjoyed their company. My husband and I booked a sail departing at 4:30 and enjoyed great weather and great sailing. The captain, Ward, was very easy going and made sure we all got a chance to sail. We loved it!

This is for ALL ages. I had my elderly parents (70+) and a young adult and teenager in our party. Ward was amazing at gearing the trip towards everyone. He let our 14-year old son steer and taught him some sailings basic. He was kind, funny, informative. Highly recommend this trip.

My husband has always wanted to learn to sail. We bought a Groupon for a private 3 hour trip for just the two of us. My husband got to spend almost the entire time steering...he was thrilled.
