Would recommend this to everyone.

We just took Captain Todd's Sunset Cruise of Bellingham Bay and it was perfect! We were fortunate to have lovely weather which always helps (be sure to bring a warm jacket, just in case) We are certainly going to recommend this trip to friends who come to visit, as well as local acquaintances. Captain Todd is very personable and we... More

My wife and I went on a Sunset Cruise, a two-and-a-half-hour tour around Bellingham Bay at sunset time. It was our fourth time, and once again it was a fantastic experience. The catamaran is really fun to hang out on, especially the netting right over the water, and it runs on clean energy when there is no wind. The owner/operator... More

I have been on the Gato Verde several times and it never disappoints! Capitan Todd is great to work with and makes the sailing trip very enjoyable. Our weather leading up to the trip was a bit iffy for those that are not use to sailing and he was very proactive days prior of the trip to making sure we... More

We really enjoyed the trip and plan to do it again. Todd really knows his stuff and is very good about sharing what he knows. It's easy to see lots of wildlife because the boat is hybrid/electric and very quiet whether under power or sail. We went on the sunset cruise and thought it was an excellent value. Where else...

I took my family of 6, including a 3 year old, as well as 18 year old. We had the most lovely excursion with Todd. It was very windy that day so he changed our route and it was wonderful. I would recommend Todd for a day trip any time.

Our family of six recently spent a day sailing on Gato Verde with Captain Todd out of Bellingham. Lovely, lovely sailing - the emphasis Gato Verde has on "green sailing" made the experience even more pleasurable. A nice sail and stop to Vendovi Island, part of the San Juan Preservation Trust, was quite special and unexpected. Captain Todd is knowledgeable,... More

What a wonderful way to celebrate family! Our grown kids and I took my husband out for Father's Day on a sunset cruise. The day was perfect, the wind just right, and Captain Todd is an amazing host!

Relaxing and such a beautiful view. The wind wasn't exactly working for us, but we still get to cruise around Bellingham Bay with a fun spirited captain, whose knowledge of green sailing and Bellingham/Island information was extensive. Enjoyed the sights, drank Champagne with friends it was wonderful.
