“Beautiful day of sailing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2011

I went with a few friends (4 of us in total) for a 3 hour evening sail. Captain Ward Fay has a wooden sailboat and I found out there are only 9 of them ever made. The weather was sunny and the winds were quite good. We had a wonderful time sailing around the San Juan Islands and were able to see some wildlife as well. Highly recommend this attraction.

“Captain Ward took us on an amazing evening sail.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2011

My fiance and I went sailing with Captain Ward. I was a little weary because I did not know how much work it would be. It was great! My fiance was able to sail the boat and Captain Ward was very knowledgeable. Seeing the setting sun was beautiful. I highly recommend this sail!

“Great day sailing on a fabulous wooden sail boat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2010

Captain Ward Fay creates a fabulous outing for the sailing novice. His willingness to share his knowledge of the San Juans, his boat, and sailing make this a fun family adventure. You will find yourself engaged at the tiller, helping trim the sails (if you want to), or just relax as the changing scenary of the islands is all around. Highly recommended.

“Best part of our Islands Trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2010

I almost passed this one by. Luckily my wife talked me into it. It was 4.5 hrs of Bliss! Ward was very informative and let us each run the helm for most of the trip. At first my wife was worried about getting sea sick, as she has a very weak stomach, turned out it was just like sailing on a lake.... nice and smooth. It was so quite and relaxing. Next time we get to the Islans we'll be doing it again!
