What you'll do

S/V Rumbera departs from Bainbridge Island's Waterfront Park, an easy walk from the ferry landing and downtown Winslow. Leaving the dock, we'll pass through beautiful Eagle Harbor before raising sails. To the east you’ll see the iconic skyline of Seattle, with majestic Mount Rainier to the south, the Olympic Mountains to the west, and Mount Baker to the north.

Depending on the day, we’ll get up close to seals, explore some beautiful harbors with stunning waterfront homes, and maybe even spot whales. Or we could see a nuclear submarine, inbound container ships, or century-old schooners. You'll learn about Bainbridge Island's unique history, from having the largest shipyard for wooden vessels in the West, to the earthquake that lifted a whole section of the Island 23 feet which can still be seen today, and of being the first place from which Japanese-Americans were forcibly removed from their homes during World War II.

You decide whether you want to charter the whole boat (“private” for up to six people) or share a charter with others (“social” for up to six people). No matter what you choose, we know you’ll have fun.

This was a really cool experience! I had never been sailing and probably wouldn't have if I didn't get this experience as a gift. If you've never gone sailing do yourself a favor and book an experience with Scott!

What a fun time! My first time sailing did NOT disappoint. Scott was very friendly and told some great stories. Even got to see some wildlife on the trip. There were 6 guests total and the seating was pretty tight. Not physically uncomfortable, but it certainly adds an element of socialization. Overall, a really great experience.
