“lovely sunset sail; very informative skipper/owner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

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.

“Great time on Bellingham Bay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We've been out on the Gato Verde with Captain Todd many times in the past 8 years, and we keep coming back for more. This is a great way to unwind and enjoy the water, the beautiful scenery (try the sunset cruise), and a great boat and guide. Laying on the "hammock" netting with the water rushing by underneath you is as natural and relaxing as it gets. Captain Todd is a perfect host, and will engage with you on local wildlife, sailing, conservation and other themes, or leave you to commune with nature, as you wish. The 4th of July cruise is a special treat, as you can cruise the Bay, watch the sunset, then see the fireworks from the best vantage point in town. More often, we charter the Gato Verde when family is in town, or just book a couple seats for a short getaway from the bustle of daily life. We can't recommend the Gato Verde highly enough!

“Captain Todd is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

What a true Northwest experience! Sailing around the sound in a beautiful catamaran! I've had the priviledge of sailing three times with various groups. Anniversary party, Work function and Family get together. Captain Todd is the best!
