Northwest Sailing Adventures is a sailboat charter company that specializes in adventure vacations, set at your pace and offered at affordable prices.

Would you like to sail amongst nearly two hundred named and unnamed islands and have the opportunity to see an abundance of wildlife, such as orca whales, eagles, dolphins and sea lions?

Are you ready to set sail on the adventure of a lifetime through the crown jewels of the Pacific Northwest -- the San Juan Islands?

Nestled in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountain’s, the San Juan Islands receive about half the annual rainfall of Seattle and the Puget Sound region. That’s great news for outdoor adventurists, and it means we can take guests out on chartered sailing adventures in the spring and fall too.

No experience, no problem. Unlike “bare boat” charters, our fully crewed charter boat provides an experienced captain, crew, meals and all provisions. You won’t have to worry about learning to sail, navigation or boat safety; all you have to do is relax and have fun!

Your sailing adventure vacation can include exploring hidden coves and hiking remote trails along Puget Sound. From the bustling tourist town of Friday Harbor to the deserted shores of remote islands only accessible by boat, let Northwest Sailing Adventures show you the northwest coast at its wild, untamed best.

Our home port of Bellingham, WA is conveniently tucked between Seattle and Vancouver, BC.

We hope you’ll join us soon for a truly unique and memorable Pacific North West experience!

  • My husband and I just returned from a sailing adventure for 5 nights and 6 days with NW Sailing Adventures. I had only been on a sailboat one time for one hour, so I was a little apprehensive about spending this amount of time on a sailboat let alone sleeping on one. Once out of the bay and sailing, we knew we were in good hands and that Ron was an excellent sailor. Ron and Mari knew where to bring the boat in each night for the best scenery, quiet and calm coves for a good nights sleep, incredible sunrises and sunsets and islands to get off the boat and go on beautiful hikes. They are willing to cater the tours to the guest’s wants and desires. We had been to Friday Harbor several times and asked if we could moor elsewhere instead of the marina and they found the most beautiful secluded cove. The sunset that evening was fantastic. They do an excellent job serving flavorful meals. You would never know that they only have a two burner stove and limited storage space. Each night we threw out crab pots, then Mari would cook up and crack the crabs for dinners and breakfasts. The crab benedicts were amazing. I could go on and on. You just have to book a trip and experience it for yourselves. You will not be sorry you did.
