A late lunch is provided on the ship. Cruise through scenic Deception Pass, named by Captain George Vancouver when he explored the territory. Look for marine mammals and enjoy views of the 175 San Juan Islands. Arrive in Friday Harbor this evening. It’s the county seat and the hub of island commerce and shopping. A wonderful dinner is served followed by a sinful dessert. An evening movie will be shown in the lounge. On board the Island Spirit – 4 nights (L,D)

  • Day 2

    This morning visit shops and galleries and enjoy a hosted visit to the Whale Museum to learn about the three local Orca Whale pods that return to the San Juan Islands each season. Later this afternoon we cast off to enjoy a wildlife search of the area. The New Dungeness lighthouse is a very special place. Built in 1857, it provides navigation safety to vessels entering Puget Sound and is available to tour. Captain Jeff is a lighthouse volunteer and a member of its association. Tonight we anchor in the bay behind the light. (B,L,D)

  • Day 3

    Enjoy a morning visit to the lighthouse and meet the weekly keepers of the light. Their job is to give tours, paint, mow the lawn and do small improvements and/or repairs. Will you walk up the 72 stairs to the lighthouse platform and step out into the weather? It is hearty exercise for the hearty at heart. Most folks have to walk 10 miles to visit the lighthouse. Not us! We will enjoy a beach landing with the crew of the Island Spirit. Captain Jeff will bring a special boat to land right on the beach up close and personal. Later today we weigh anchor. We are bound for Port Townsend and another lighthouse tour. (B,L,D)

  • Day 4

    This morning our docent will lead a tour to Fort Warden and the Point Wilson Lighthouse. Fort Warden is the site of the movie “An Officer and a Gentleman.” Established in the early 1900’s, the army artillery corps set up gun emplacements here to protect Puget Sound and Seattle. The guns are quiet but memories abound. Later today there is time to shop and enjoy Port Townsend. Tonight we’ll cruise south for a new anchorage close to Seattle in the Poulsbo area. (B,L,D)

  • Day 5

    Enjoy breakfast as we cruise to Seattle where we transit the Hiram Chittenden Locks. The locks lead us from the salt water of Puget Sound to fresh water above. Your captain narrates during the transit. Disembark after lunch for the airport and your flight home to Sacramento. (B,L)
