If you don’t find a cruise of interest, let us customize one for you. There are many places to go in the beautiful Salish Sea .
Budd Bay Cruise - Our most popular! A two, three, or four hour cruise along beautiful Budd Bay to Boston Harbor and back along Cooper Point. On a clear day, the Olympics and Mt. Rainier are incredible to view.
Weather is often unpredictable on Puget Sound. Our sailing of Traveler depends on the wind conditions, destination of the cruise, and the wishes of the guests. Winds might be light in mid summer. Our goal is to raise sails whenever possible. However, some of the most thrilling sailing is during a low pressure system accompanied by clouds and rain.
Traveler is a comfortable boat to experience the beauty of Puget Sound, even in our common blustery weather of late spring and early fall.
Jarrell's Cove Cruise - With this overnight cruise, experience Jarrell’s Cove 3,500 feet of salt water shore that makes beach exploration very popular. Jarrell’s Cove is on the north shore of Harstine Island.
Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival Cruise - A six day cruise departing Olympia the morning of September 4th, 2018. We meander up the sound, arriving in Port Townsend on the evening of the third day. Then you have two days to enjoy the festival before heading south again.
Celebrating One’s Life - a Memorial on the Water - Time on the water can be a wonderful place to reflect on the passing of a loved one’s life- either spreading of ashes or time for family reflection.
Wedding Aboard - Bring your partner and a couple of witnesses and tie the knot while drifting in Budd Bay. We'll arrange an officiant or you can bring your own. Connie will work with you to select a couple of your favorite songs.
Sunset Cruise - Let your spirits soar as Rainer, our big mountain turns amber and the Olympics shed their light. Sunset on the water is magical. This three hour cruise can be a wonderful way to celebrate life, relationships and the beautiful world we live in.
Multi-Night Cruises in the Salish Sea - Stay with us for 2 to 7 nights as we gunkhole around the South Sound or head up north to explore bigger waters. We will visit quiet island anchorages, hike remote state parks, and spend time immersed in the beauty of our forested watershed.
Dinner Cruise - Come aboard in the late afternoon, enjoy appetizers on deck while taking in the scenery, then sit down to a tasty dinner on the water. This three hour cruise is a perfect way to end your day. Let us do the cooking. Sit back and enjoy.
Overnight Option - Instead of staying in a hotel, stay aboard Traveler for a night at the dock. Combine an overnight stay with one of our other paid cruises. We have two private, two person cabins and space for two more persons in the salon. Price $80 for two plus $10 per extra person. Coffee, tea, and breakfast rolls included.
Hope Island Discovery - Lift your spirits and enjoy the sights on this seven hour cruise. This beautiful 106 acre marine park is reachable only by water, with incredible views of Rainier and the Olympics.
McMicken Island Tidelands - Experience a full day or overnight cruise to an 11.5 acre marine state park located off the east side of Harstine Island. Take the dinghy ashore to walk the sand bar and the hiking trail then relax on the boat watching eagles feeding on the shoreline.
If a cruise is cancelled by the Captain because of weather or vessel condition presenting a risk to guests, there will be a full charter refund or a transfer for a future cruise.
If you cancel more than 14 days before your sail is to begin, your payment will be returned in full, less a 6% service fee.
If you cancel less than 14 days before your sail is to begin, we will return 50% of the total charter cost or.... we will happily work to reschedule your cruise to another time.
