Take in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with two nights in Friday Harbor.

Daily Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive in Seattle and drive north to Bellingham in time to board The Chinook, a motor yacht. Lunch is served onboard as you set sail through the Puget Sound and begin your first day of exploration through the San Juan Islands. Our captain will determine the route based on current wildlife reports, so be on the lookout! The day ends in Friday Harbor with a casual dinner. Friday Harbor Suites – 2 nights (L,D)

Day 2

After breakfast at your hotel sail through the San Juan Channel to the exclusive Roche Harbor Resort. A walking tour of the resort grounds will inform you of the history of the area and give you a taste of the posh life. Enjoy whimsical and elaborate art installations at the San Juan Sculpture Park, the largest in the Pacific Northwest. A decadent cracked Dungeness crab lunch is served back on the ship. There are nonseafood options for you landlubbers. Arrive back to Friday Harbor with time to enjoy the town before a waterside dinner. (FB,L,D)

Day 3

Sucia Island State Park situated at the very top of the archipelago is your first landing today. The reefs and broken shoreline form a geological folding of the earth’s crust and has brought many interesting marine fossils to the surface. Lunch is served right on the beach! Join a short hike with a naturalist to learn about the geology and view the stunning shoreline. Sail past uninhabited islands back to Bellingham and travel to Mukilteo. Tonight’s accommodations are waterfront, and Ivar’s, a Pacific Northwest favorite, is serving up local fare right next door for dinner on your own. Silver Cloud Inn (FB,L)

Day 4

Enjoy a leisurely morning sipping your coffee watching the Washington State Ferries come and go. Stop in Snohomish for lunch with time to browse the town’s many eclectic boutiques and antique shops before catching an early evening flight home. (FB,L)
