Small-Group Orcas Island Historic Yachting Cruise
Welcome Aboard the High Seas! Our 4:00PM "Happy Hour" cruise is the only charter of its kind in the San Juan Islands. Guests will relax in comfort and safety aboard a beautifully restored 1935 John Alden motor yacht once owned by Hollywood royalty. Our cruise will last approximately two hours from departure to return. Along our route we will pass Orcas Island, Shaw Island, Crane Island, Pole Pass, and Jones Island. Throughout the cruise the Captain will be explaining the tales and lore behind many of these unique and culturally historic areas. You are welcome to sit back, relax and marvel in the majestic tranquility of the San Juan waterways. This is very unique way to experience the beauty of the Pacific Northwest Islands. A truly memorable experience, and with any luck we may spot orcas, humpbacks, minkes and occasionally even gray whales. So, bring your camera and enjoy your trip! This is a shared cruise and guest seating is limited to 6 passengers total.
$99.00 per adult

A chic "crab shack" with plenty of sea delicacies for sale, and for eating on the spot. Select your live crab or oysters, the staff will prepare them for consumption, and then enjoy at the picnic tables outside!

We walked up to this location feeling like we were walking into a family picnic. It was a warm sunny day, they had tables and umbrellas set up outside and locals and visitors alike were enjoying their fresh oysters on the grass out in front of the building, sharing wine and

Highly recommend if you like great seafood, nice people and a great atmosphere! We shucked and ate crab and oysters here and we also took them back to our campsite for later! The fresh halibut and salmon were also very good!
