Owner description: San Juan Classic Day Sailing offers 2 hour Day Sails, Half Day Private Charters, Sun Set Sails and Sailing Lessons out of Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, Wa. aboard beautiful classic, fully restored wooden sailing ships. We sail through some of the most beautiful and pristine waters in the world, offering guests a chance to participate hands on the the sailing of the vessel or the opportunity to just sit back and relax and enjoy the ride. Along with spectacular natural scenery, the San Juan Islands are home to many species of marine wildlife, including porpoise, seals and sea lions, many types of water birds and the magnificent Orca Whales. We feel that seeing these animals from the deck of a sailboat, silently gliding through the water, is one of the most environmentally sound and respectful ways of viewing them in their natural habitat. We welcome you to join us! In addition to sailing, scenery and wildlife, we offer local wine and hors de oeuvres on most of our sails for a truly unique and exclusive experience.

We wanted to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary with something special and we found it. Captain Art and his crew (Morgan, Nate, Amy and Josh) made our day on the Dirigo II an absolute delight. They are very seasoned sailors with expert knowledge of the area, of this exquisite vessel, and of how to meet the needs of their guests. There is no way to describe the experience as wonderful as this was, spending the day on a beautiful classic craft with this group of skilled sailors which gave us great confidence and pleasure. The day was totally relaxing and often educational. The thrill of silently slicing through the waters is like no other experience. This has to be the best way to enjoy the scenery of the San Juan islands. Simply put - it just doesn't get any better than this!!!

Our family spend the day on the Dirigo recently, and had one of our best family outings of all time. Friendly and professional crew, tasty snacks, and the relaxed (uncrowded) atmosphere all contributed to a great day. If you are considering a sail with these folks as an option while in the islands: Trust me, do it!
