Our Philosophy:

 

Schedule and the Three "w"s

We want you to remember your time in the San Juans as one of the most wonderful and relaxing adventures of your life. We have a schedule that we "try" to stick to, but we almost never do entirely. 

The main reason we don't is because of the "Three W's": Wind, Weather, and Whales!

This usually means that we are having too much fun sailing, watching whales, or enjoying a lazy day on the beach to hurry off to our next stop, so we are flexible and always try to make the best of any situation that comes our way!  

 

thoughts on Whales

The question we get the most is: "Will we see whales?" The answer is: "We can guarantee a possibility of seeing whales."

The whales of the Salish Sea (particularly  the Orca members of the J,K, and L pod) are in a very difficult situation right now. There are a number of factors that are contributing to their current situation, and we want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

Our trips are not focused on seeing these whales, but when the opportunity presents itself, we certainly try to see them. Viewing whales in the wild is one of the most spectacular experiences you can have, and we love to share this with our guests in hopes that our passion and concern can spread further through their network of friends, and maybe this can lead to understanding and action on a larger scale. 

One factor that is certainly not helping the situation for orcas is noise. You can read all about how noise pollution affects, communication, hunting, and travel for Killer Whales.  We have a simple philosophy when we encounter whales, and it's just one small thing we can do to try and help: 

"See whales, raise sails"

This has been the most magical week I’ve ever had. It’s been a truly terrific experience. We could not have found better people, or a better Place.
