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.

This is a can't miss PNW experience. We took my dad out for a fathers day sunset sail and it was such a fun experience. My husband and I have been on the Gato Verde with Todd many times without a doubt its an affordable memorable experience for all ages. Todd is so genuine, knowledgeable and friendly.

This was the 2nd time we went out on the Gato Verde and it was just as fun as the first. We've done both the sunset sail and this time we did an afternoon sail since we wanted the boat to ourselves and the sunset cruise already had people signed up. The captain is very friendly and accomodating. The private... More

I booked a surprise Sunset Sail for my boyfriend's birthday. We were the only ones who had made a reservation for that night, so we ended up having a private cruise. The weather was wonderful, the sunset was beautiful, and Captain Todd was very friendly and accommodating. He offered a wine opener and glasses for the wine that we had... More

My friends and I recently enjoyed a wonderful afternoon sail around Bellingham Bay aboard the Gato Verde. Captain Todd is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and the boat is gorgeous. We loved watching marine life and the islands go by as we lounged on the nets. Can't wait for our next trip!

We chartered the Gato Verde for 4 hours for a surprise birthday party for my husband. Most of us are from the area and have spent time on the water around the San Juan Islands, but this experience was fantastic! Our captain, Todd was awesome and informative. We brought our own food and beverages, which made it really easy and... More

Each year for the past 3 years my family and I have booked the Gato Verde with (amazing!) Captain Todd Shuster for a sunset cruise on Bellingham Bay. We book the whole boat and bring 8 of our friends, so there are 12 of us on board. We usually bring some wine and Thai take-out. It is ALWAYS AWESOME to... More

Highest marks for three-day trip that was outstanding in every respect. Starting with the Captain, Todd, you couldn't hope for a more personable, knowledgeable, and skillful guide. Ship handling was excellent, but that was just the baseline for his depth of knowledge of the islands and ability to chart our course and pick our anchorages. The 42' Cat, with wide... More

What a great way to see a sunset and experience a 2 hour sailing trip!! Captain Todd was very informative and friendly. Guests may take their beverage of choice on the boat as well. Dock a short walk from Fairhaven. Would denfinitely recommend this activity to any sea lover in the area.
