What a great day!!!! Dave is an amazing captain! He has an easy, relaxed and fun apporach to guiding his guests and I felt very welcome to make myself at home on the beautiful Na'walak. He holds deep knowledge about the islands- the cultural history, flora and fauna - I felt I could go any direction with questions and have... More

We had an awesome time, and a spectacular day sail! The trip around Spieden Island was excellent with 3 Daves, Tracy and Yogi. Captain Dave Lutz is great, and very knowledgeable of the pristine islands of the Pacific Northwest, including providing us with glimpses of fascinating flora and fauna. Not only did we see whales, we saw seals, eagles, and... More

We went out for a 6-hour day sail in April, 2013 and had a wonderful time. Na'walak is beautiful, and her captain is very welcoming and knowledgeable. Our family was thrilled to see so much wildlife, and we were fascinated by the in-depth natural and cultural history Dave shared. This day was the absolute highlight of our week in the... More

We sailed on a sunset sail with Captain Dave in July of 2012, based on the recommendation of the owner of the hotel we stayed at (they advised us to go with nobody else - that Emerald is the best). Captain Dave is totally customer focused. He went out of his way to make sure we had a great sail.... More

His boat is great and Captain Dave is so knowledgable, skilled and fun to be with. Plus Katy, his chef, is a master at turning out gourmet meals in all kinds of conditions, and, at... More

My boyfriend an I went sailing around the San Juan Islands with Emerald Isle Sailing Charters. We had the best time. Captain Dave is very good at what he does. He showed us some spectacular views and he knows a lot about the wildlife around the area. We will definitely sail with him again!!!
