Your evening begins with a special welcome boarding at beautiful Bell Harbor Marina, located on the downtown Seattle waterfront.

Upon boarding, we'll provide a short Vessel & Safety Orientation to ensure you have a safe and comfortable cruise. And before we cast the dock lines loose, we'll pour a celebratory glass of chilled Prosecco and toast to having you aboard for a great summer evening.

As we motor west out of the marina and clear the breakwater, we'll turn off the engine, raise sail, and
take in the vibrant waterfront with great views of the Space Needle, the famous Edgewater Hotel, the Great Seattle Wheel, the Port of Seattle, and breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier and the Olympic Mountains.

Now it's a turn to the west and time to enjoy some tasty munchies as you lounge on the foredeck. We'll head towards Alki beach, where  the native Duwamish Tribe and Chief Sealth welcomed the first white settlers. Today, this area is Seattle's version of Miami Beach!


Rounding up to a beam reach as we clear the Alki Point Lighthouse,
now you'll really start to sail. Look for the Washington State ferries heading to Bremerton and Bainbridge, tugs, and commercial freighters as we cross the shipping lanes on our 3-mile sail to Bainbridge Island. Watch for Blakely Rock, a prominent point for scuba divers about a mile due east of the Blakely harbor entrance. Once we pass the the rock, the wind will settle, and you'll cruise by some lovely homesteads lining the northern and southern harbor shores.


The anchor goes down and the sails are lowered. Now its time to enjoy a wonderful presentation of homemade dishes and featured wines in the view of downtown Seattle.

After sunset, we'll enjoy a night sail back to Bell Harbor Marina. The city lights are mesmerizing!


Now that we've properly toasted to King Neptune, thanking him (or her) for our safe return, we'll secure the dock lines and once again be shore side. We invite you to sign our guest log, then we'll bid you farewell as new friends, and escort you up to the head of the dock.
