I cannot say enough positive about this sailing experience. The tours are affordable and reasonably priced for most travelers. The captain is an expert not only as a sailor, but he knows the fauna too. The boat is well kept and easy to move around on. We brought a little picnic. Perhaps nicest, one member of our party was late,... More

My dad was turning 80 and we struggled to find just the perfect gift. Since he used to have his own sail boat, we thought sailing would be a fun activity for our multiple generations while allowing us to visit. Booking a trip was easy with many options to choose from. The boat was clean and spacious for the 5... More

I can't say enough about my experiences on the Gato Verde. Captain Todd is wonderful and whether you're sailing with a group of 6 or you end up having the entire cat to yourselves, it is truly an amazing experience to be on Bellingham Bay for a sunset. I appreciate that he has converted the cat to be clean and... More

My partner and I had a wonderful time with Todd out on Bellingham Bay. His boat is beautiful and the cruise was just perfect. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is visiting Bellingham or even local folks just looking to get out on the water.

If you are in Bellingham, El Gato Verde is fantastic. We did the sunset sail and was cold. Dress warmly and enjoy the scenery.

We decided to take a Sunset Cruise on the Gato Verde on our anniversary. And, as usual, Capt. Todd Schuster did not disappoint. While providing a wealth of knowledge about sailing and the area, Todd makes your trip a pleasant one as you cruise through beautiful Bellingham Bay. We were also pleasantly surprised by the other couple on our trip,... More

A soft and easy sail, one of Bellingham's most glorious sunsets, visitors from abroad, and some nice wine... There could be no better way to celebrate the end of summer! Three couples, lifetime friendships, a commodious vessel, and the Gato Verde's knowledgeable host combined to give us a magical experience and memories to savor.

Would recommend this to everyone. The day we were scheduled to sail they predicted rain so a quick call to Todd and he by luck was open that afternoon and we ended up switching last minute and enjoyed a beautiful sunny afternoon after all! Todd the captain was very friendly and helped us spot seals our girls were looking for.... More

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
