Ron and Mari were the most gracious hosts! Upon arriving to the marina, Mari helped us locate the correct parking area and took our belongings down on a cart while we parked. I was surprised at how spacious and cozy the boat was inside. We set sail shortly after boarding and headed through the Islands through the most beautiful landscape and saw lots of sea lions frolicking in the water. Mari made a delicious lunch (and even catered to my vegetarian diet) and we talked and laughed until we reached Sucia Island, where we tied up to a buoy and took the dinghy to shore for a beautiful, scenic hike. After spending a few hours on land, we returned to the boat for dinner, an outstanding vegetarian chili. We watched the sunset from Diminuendo's deck while eating dinner & drinking wine, then headed into the cabin for games and stories. Stargazing from the aft deck was incredible and Captain Ron was happy to explain every aspect of running the boat & sails, which is surprisingly interesting! The beds were super comfy and spacious and I slept very well. When I woke in the morning, There was coffee waiting, which is always appreciated. We set sail again shortly after breakfast and snacked and swapped stories until having lunch, a tasty tomato & vegetable soup; then returned to Bellingham. This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience with real, down-to-earth hosts and beautiful scenery. Will be back!
