Salmon Sunset dinner. Couldn't wish for a better experience! Everything was a fairytale dream: weather (cool and breezy), crew (knowledgeable, polite, glad to share fun stories), food (cooked to perfection with the right amount of seasoning and a European touch) and the 100 year old schooner in it's well maintained splendour. A thousand thanks and hope to get back for a longer cruise.

This was a trip designed by a friend who is from the area and always wanted to sail on Zodiac. It was fun. You need to know that this isn't a "cruise" ship with large staterooms. This is a sailboat that is a sailboat. If there are a lot of people (we had 24) - folks need to be able to be limber enough to crawl into the bunks. The bunks are sturdy and easy to sleep in but one has to be able to crawl in. Most of us engaged in ship activities like raising the sails, doing the helm, and cleaning the deck. And....you go places that bigger vessels can't go. We had a chef, Caz - that made amazing food and no one ever went hungry. THIS IS AN EXPERIENCE. Rent it for your group and be prepared to have fun. PS - we did not have one rainy day and caught wind on most days. She is big and needs a bundle of wind, so you won't be sailing every minute. And.....you can get away - cell service can be undependable through the islands.

We took the ale and sail cruise on the schooner Zodiac . Beautiful old sailing vessel in great condition. Crew were very friendly, as was the captain. Beers offered by Kulshan brewery on board good. Meal was delicious. Caught a nice breeze. Great moving gracefully across Bellingham bay under sail. Fantastic way to spend an evening. Strongly recommended.

My husband and I took the brunch cruise today, it was very disappointing. Especially the brunch, a slice of Pannini bread with cheese, ham and a egg on top, a few spoonfuls of yogurt with a few raspberries and granola, raisin rolls barely sweetened, coffee or tea. That's it! The gallery is very tiny and was very congested trying to get your food, find a place to eat, there are two tables, maybe you can fit 6 at each table, another small table that can seat four, up a few steps is a bench sofa and sort of coffee table to eat. On deck, it was fun watching everyone pitching in to try and raise the sails. Uncomfortable seating. Crew is friendly, how the cook prepares anything in the tiny area is amazing to me, you can select your own mug that hang from the ceiling. How anyone could enjoy multiple nights on this boat is beyond me, Two tiny bathrooms, bunk berths, no showers. Most disappointing was what they called brunch. They would have been better off with scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, a bowl of mixed fresh fruit and a muffin or scone. We would never do this trip again, it was not up to our expectations. Only half the sails were raised, also disappointing.

My fiancee took me to it. To my surprise Aslan Brewing was serving up their organic beer free - all part of the package. After helping raising the sails we took off viewing the awesome bay and Lummi island. Then there was a mariner style dinner below deck that was pretty tasty and hefty. Wonderful way to enjoy your twilight.
