Something to try together.

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.

Scott was a great host. Excellent local knowledge from a long-time Bainbridge Island resident. He worked to provide a personalized experience that really worked for what I hoped to get from this outing. Really a second-to-none experience.

My family and I had a wonderful time with Scott! He was super flexible when we had to change our time for weather considerations. It ended up being a beautiful sail and one of the highlights of our trip to Washington.
