Welcome to Northwest Sailing Adventures!
Crewed Sailing Charters and Tours through the San Juan Islands
Experience the scenic beauty of Washington’s San Juan Islands in safety and comfort aboard the charter sailing yacht Diminuendo. Your fully crewed, all-inclusive sailing vacation allows you to relax and enjoy the ever-changing panorama while your crew caters to all of your needs.
Set sail on the adventure of a lifetime on a fully crewed sailing vacation through the crown jewels of the Pacific Northwest, the San Juan Islands. Comprised of nearly two hundred named and unnamed islands, this beautiful archipelago is home to an abundance of wildlife. You are likely to see orcas blow or breach, eagles and ospreys on the wing, dolphins and porpoises as they cavort on your bow wave, or seals and sea lions basking on the rugged shores. Explore hidden coves and hike remote trails. From the bustling tourist town of Friday Harbor to the deserted shores of remote islands only accessible by boat, you’ll see the Northwest coast at its wild, untamed best. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains, the San Juans receive about half the annual rainfall of Seattle and the Puget Sound.
Your adventure begins at our home port of Bellingham, Washington, just 90 minutes north of Seattle and 60 minutes south of Vancouver, BC. Northwest Sailing Adventures is a crewed sailing charter company with an emphasis on adventure and exploration at your pace, offered at affordable prices.
Unlike “bareboat” sailing charters, your captain, crew, and delicious meals are provided. No previous sailing or boating experience necessary! Booking a bareboat cruising vacation is not as simple as walking up to the rental counter and getting the keys. The miscellaneous charges can be quite an eye-opener. Your fully crewed San Juan Islands sailing charter is all-inclusive; no unpleasant surprises! With your crew taking care of navigation, you can be enthralled by your surroundings for the ultimate fully crewed San Juan sailing vacation.
