Our Overnight Sail Excursion package is perfect for couples, families or friends looking for a way to truly unplug and spend two days at a more relaxed pace. With two days on the water, and an overnight aboard, you’ll find plenty of time for hands-on sailing experience as well as pure relaxation. You won’t have any trouble settling into life on the Salish Sea.
Upon arrival of your overnight destination, the captain will go ashore, leaving you to come and go as you please. The yacht is yours for the evening. With a night in a marina, for easy come-and-go shore access, you’ll have the options to experience your perfect getaway.
Our destinations offer a variety of excursions ashore – exploring the town, delightful dining options, hiking, beach combing – your imagination and sense of adventure are the limit!
Port Townsend Out of Eagle Harbor we’ll turn north along the eastern shoreline of Bainbridge Island, past Port Madison, Indianola, Kingston, Foulweather Bluff, and up the eastern shoreline of Marrowstone Island before catching sight of the town – a view perhaps not all that altered over the last 100 years or so.
Arriving in Port Townsend by sailing vessel is to be transported in to a time long ago. This vibrant Victorian town is home to some of the nations finest traditional shipwrights and sail makers. And the tradition carries on! If you’re into boat-gazing on the docks, this is your town!
The historic architecture, delicious food and festive atmosphere make this the perfect getaway! Upon arrival we’ll tie up at either Point Hudson Marina or Boat Haven, depending on availability. The town is small and walk-able from either marina.
Gig Harbor Heading south, we’ll meander along the eastern shoreline of Bainbridge Island, past Blakely Harbor, Restoration Point, beyond Blake Island and past Vashon Island, turning west, landing in the lovely protected bay that is Gig Harbor. This is a delightful village with plenty to offer in the way of sights, strolling the streets and places to eat. The narrow entrance of this snug bay gives a secluded and tucked away feel, like you’ve discovered the place, and it remains the long-time home port of good-sized and successful fishing fleets of purse-seiners and geoduckers.
Poulsbo Circumnavigate Bainbridge Island and stay in the delightful little village of Poulsbo, a quaint Norwegian fishing town, that offers a delightful and bustling waterfront town and park. With plenty of options for dining out, lots of little shops and the best marine consignment shop this side of the Cascades, Poulsbo is a wonderful destination.
Ballard A trip to Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood is a true delight. Captain Ben counts this as one of he and his wife’s go-to overnights when they get time away on the boat. Mooring at Shilshole Bay Marina provides an easy taxi ride or a lovely long stroll into historic Ballard and all it’s charm. We’ll be honest with you – we go there to eat! And given it’s close proximity, this trip allows for a lunch stop in Port Madison, at the north end of Bainbridge, and more time ashore in Ballard.
Additional days and destinations can be worked into the sail plan. Ask us about customizing the perfect multi-night excursion for you!
