We had a perfect evening sail with Ward. He is friendly, competent & informative. And he let me take the tiller for the evening (with guidance, of course). Lovely experience!

We had a lovely full moon sail this last weekend. Our schedule was tight and Captain Ward accommodated us very nicely. The boat is in great condition and has nice cushions so you are nice and comfy. He made sure we saw some animal life and it was a lovey experience. Very mellow and beautiful. I think this is a great addition to an Orcas trip. You see things differently out on the water.

Our sailing experience with Capt. Ward was nothing short of wonderful! The weather was perfect, as was the whole sail. He let us sail the boat and experience the real feel of the morning breezes and waters. Capt. was knowledgeable, enjoyable, and gracious. HIGHLY recommend this 3 hour experience of heaven on earth!! Would definitely repeat this trip!

It was a wonderful opportunity to spend really quality time with my grown daughters and a fiance. We were able to sail the boat as if it was ours. If we get back to Orcas we'll do it again.

Our three-hour 4:30 pm sailing trip included our 2.5 year old son, which could have easily been a disaster. Much to our delight, it was laid-back, beautiful, calming and informative. Captain Ward was patient, kind and thoughtful. Our son remembers seeing seals (yes!), porpoises (yes!) Orcas (nope.) and grandpa (referring to Ward). A child-size life jacket was provided and fit him perfectly, which allowed us to go to the bow of the boat with him for a different view. The weather was warm, sunny and calm. We would recommend this trip for anyone wanting a relaxing view of the islands.
