Anacortes Yacht Charters

Escape the ordinary with a San Juan Islands yacht charter vacation.

Adventure awaits

The San Juan Islands and Gulf Islands are some of the most popular cruising areas in the world.

What is it that draws people to these islands? A big reason is because the islands are remote but accessible at the same time. A short drive from Seattle or Vancouver puts you in Anacortes, Washington, the “Gateway to the San Juan Islands.” From there, the San Juan Islands start a mere 15 miles away.

Your Cruise. Your Choice.

Once in the islands, you’ll find quaint both communities and hidden hideaway, all surrounded by a calm inland sea. Seemingly endless miles of coastline and over 100 islands give you plenty of options for exploring and relaxing. Drop anchor in a quiet cove, or tie up at one of the island marinas – it’s your choice when you charter!

Anacortes Yacht Charters has provided San Juan Islands yacht charters for 45 years. We have the largest selection of motor yachts and sailboats in the Northwest. Our experience and fleet mean we can match you with the perfect boat for a trip of lifetime.

Pacific Shadow

82' yacht charter in the pacific northwest.


Pacific Shadow , a luxury yacht built in 1982, has been extensively retrofitted for today’s cruising needs. Professionally decorated and lovingly maintained, she is the perfect yacht for up to 4 couples, large groups or families to cruise in comfort in the PNW. She is built on a commercial deep-v hull with stabilizers and is extremely comfortable both at sea and at anchor. She has bright staterooms (with more hot showers than most homes!) and large, beautiful entertaining areas on both the main and top decks. On drizzly Northwest days, everyone in your group can find a covered, enclosed, quiet area to read, play cards or make cocktails. When the clouds part, there are plenty of areas to enjoy the warm sunshine or be in the shade while still enjoying the breeze.  Speaking of weather, zoned heating and air conditioning throughout the main and stateroom levels. Satellite TV on the fly bridge, in the salon and hidden in the Owners’ Stateroom mean never missing a game or breaking news. The cellular wifi on board works in most of the Gulf and San Juan Islands so you can stay connected with friends - sending updates on your dream vacation.

Boating in the Pacific Northwest

The San Juan Islands of Washington and Gulf Islands of British Columbia provide some of the most beautiful boating in the world.  The beautiful water, soaring mountains and abundant wildlife make this an area unparalleled for boat charter.  Fishing, crabbing, kayaking, biking, wine tasting, hiking - if you love to do it, it can probably be found in the waters and communities of these island paradises.  You can visit the islands by ferry, but in your own yacht, you will have a private oasis from which to experience this once in a lifetime vacation. 

If you are more adventurous, take her out for a couple of weeks or more and venture north to the Princess Louisa Inlet or the Queen Charlotte Islands of BC.  Or take the whole summer and head to Alaska!

The Details

Pacific Shadow is available for crewed charter.  Perfect for 4 couples or 2 -3 families, she sleeps 11 guest comfortably.  She has 5 staterooms (4 guest and 1 for the crew) all with ensuite heads (bathrooms for you landlubbers) and a day head (or powder room) on the main level.  

She also includes a 13' RIB dinghy with a chart plotter/fish finder, crab rings and fishing gear.  Back on board, there are two bars where you can drown your sorrows if you don't catch anything.  

Charter is handled through the Northwest's premier chartering company.  They can arrange everything from crew to food.

Dear Captain Hanna, aka Jennifer, You and your team are about to get underway for a final trip. Rather than write a more formal letter, I offer this quick email. Besides, my letters usually look more like a prescription for penicillin, given my handwriting. We had a wonderful time, from your exuberant reception to our sad departure. You and your staff worked so hard to assure our every comfort and pleasure. Jamal was flawless, “shipshape”, and so, so comfortable. Kristen’s efforts to please us, especially given some of dietary restrictions, was noteworthy and extraordinarily tasteful. She is remarkable. And Cloe and Zane: always about the yacht assuring that we were without need. And such nice, nice individuals. And we loved the “uniforms”. And, then there was you. I have been about yachts for 50 years; yes, 50. I have been aboard 10 chartered yachts with captains and crew. I know expertise. You are beyond remarkable. We felt very safe and enjoyed seeing you “in action”. Then there was your hospitality. Charming. Quite charming. And, yes, we were sad to leave. All to say, we all had a marvelous time. I speak for everyone, even Gordon. And Joanne and I look forward to returning, likely with family, (when I able to gain consensus, somewhat like gaining world peace). Thank you. Thank you. You and your crew: lovely and handsome, professional, personable, attentive, and sensitive.
Jennifer Now that I’m back in my hectic and demanding world of lawyer, mediator and ministerial issues, it makes me feel even more thankful for the wonderful time we had with you and your terrific crew. You are all so good at what you do that you create an atmosphere on Jamal that anyone can truly enjoy. As I’ve said, God has given you such magnificent gifts to use in God’s service and that is exactly what you do. I thank you for your giving of those gifts to me, my wife and my good friends. I’m looking forward to being blessed with another magnificent experience next year. May God’s blessings come to you, Bailey and Kristen.
Good Morning, We all made it home with flight delays, locked baggage compartments and dead car batteries, but most of all we miss you and the girls! You made our trip the best we have ever experienced and while exchanging e-mails this morning we all want to go back and see you, Misty, Lena and Campbell! Words can’t express our gratitude or do justice to the great time we had on the cruise, but as I said when we talked on the bridge, the people of the Jamal are absolutely the best we could have ever hoped for…… We can’t wait for you to visit us! Safe travels, we love you all!
Hi Jim, I can’t begin to tell you how much fun everyone had on the charter. I told Jennifer that after seeing some of the photos, you probably wished you were on the charter, too! The weather was incredible, the crew was over the top in service & professional skills and Jamal was a real treat. You certainly did a great job on the design. Sorry it didn’t work to meet you. It would have been a real pleasure. You must be very proud of Jennifer, she is such a professional. You got a real winner in Kari. Jennifer & Lenore were very pleasantly surprised at how well she performed and how well she fit in with everyone. Each day I would think it couldn’t get any better, but it did.I’ll probably plan on this again next year.Have a fun time yourself this week. All the best and thanks again.
Of all the journeys I have taken, this one has to be one of the best! A memorable time spent in the company of old and new friends. Jim, you are a great skipper and a most interesting man! We enjoyed your thought provoking questions at dinner and felt better for the laughter many of them provided! Sally, you are a wonder! As a chef, you excel but as a person, you are unmated. What a lot we learned from you! We hope you have a wonderful summer of cruising. We will thank of you often and wish we were sharing the moment with you. Thank you so much! Love,
Jim thanks for the opportunity to cruise with you. There is much to remember and remember I will. From the bears and whales, to the dolphins and eagles, to quiet bays and a pod of Orcas, this was simply a great trip. Not one day of rain and only about 4 hours of rough seas, how did you do it? It was an added bonus to help you and Sally celebrate your birthday. Thanks for letting us play with all the toys and drive the boat around logs. Wishing you a summer of sunshine and smooth seas, and love and laughter as we have known these past 10 days. Thanks,
Dear Jim, Fran & Sally, We have had a most fantastic cruise with a most generous Captain. Sally in the galley had the most satisfying food of any cruise I have been on. The sea lions and seals were great to watch and the whales put on a fine show, with their fluking and blowing. The scenery was awesome. The sailing was smooth. I will never go on a large cruise ship again. This is the only way to go on a vacation.
Dear Jennifer, Fran & Sally, This was the best vacation! So relaxing and beautiful! Thank you for everything and especially teaching me the “Jamaican” wave!
Jon, Jim, Sally, Wally, & Frani Wani, What a wonderful wonderful holiday and an adventure beyond imagination. Every day something new and fun.

Jen, you have to be the most wonderful, big-hearted, talented Captain ever. We are so lucky to have Lenora as our chef. Not only is she the very best at her skill, shes loving, kind, and joyful. Maureen has been an absolute doll with her sweet smiles and darling personality. Thank you all so much!
Dear Jen, Maureen & Lenore, We thank you very much for this wonderful experience. You all will have a very special place in our hearts. You do this job so very well, each of you.
Den Jen, Mo, and Sally, Theres nothing I could write that would express how truly wonderful this trip on Jamal has been. The itinerary you laid out was extraordinary, from the whale watching to the quaint harbors, but the best of all was the opportunity to spend time with three amazing women and the Jamalians, of course! Also, special thanks to Sally for forever raising our expectations of great food! I hope we all meet again! Thanks for sharing your love of Jamal and the Pacific NW with us!
Awesome sights and mtns, waterfalls, glaciers Lots of wildlife and bears, sea lions, whales, eagles Adventures on shore and Steely Dan, hot springs, lakes, wild flowers, bear poop Sensational Sensations of the Senses and Breakfasts, Lunches, Dinners Kindest Crew!!! and Jim and Corinne & Sally Jo Among friends while making memories. e of Jamal and the Pacific NW with us!
Well, this is Day 5 for my week long adventure on the Jamal. Grandpa & Grandma will still be with all of you for a week after we leave. Trent & I, (newlyweds), have had the most spectacular time with all of you. Our crew, Captain Jen, Kathy (Kiki) & Sally Wally. You have made this trip a dream come true for us. We came here to relax before our big day, & we have definitely accomplished that. It was above & beyond anything we could have imagined! Alaska is beautiful & breath-taking, but not half as beautiful & breath-taking as you three ladies. The hospitality, amazing, the food, outstanding, the memories, forever! The generosity of our Captain, even though she was on a schedule, was perfect. She knew how badly I, (Allie), wanted to see whales. She found them & took the time out for us to enjoy them. I shall never forget her for that; I will never forget any of the crew. They will be forever in our hearts and I truly wish they could be at our wedding. Thank you so much for your kindnesses. Jen and Dont ever change! Your bubbly nature is infectious! I love it! Kathy (Kiki) and Great child-naming skills. Great taste! Love ya! Sally Wally and We love you! You are the gentlest, sweetest woman we have ever met! All of you will be forever remember, forever loved!
Sensational sights of whales, glaciers, and bears have made this voyage on the Jamal the most fantastic way to see Alaska. Taking those narrow passages and hearing the thunderous crack of the glaciers remains for me the highlight of the trip. Thanks to you, Jennifer, we have seen as much of Alaska as possible in a short time. You took us to waterfalls, sea lions, warm & hot springs and superbly maneuvered the boat to sight whales. Travel in tandem with DK, Stacy and Megan proved to be fortuitous, with them some of our group went fishing and even saw bears in action. And, Jen, your crew of Sally, Sally Jo, and Cathy went out of their way at all times to make us extremely comfortable, well fed, and entertained. You have all enriched my life and I will miss you. Alaska will be here if we ever decide to return, but we would be lacking something if we didnt see you again.
Sally, Jen, Sally-Jo (Cathy) & Cathy (Kiki) We Love you ladies and and had an absolutely awesome time! Highlights of course were: Sallys incredible meals, whale-watching, kayaking, glacier watching & just being here! You ladies are the BEST and we love you all!
My Dears, Beautiful Jamalian Girls, well Women really, I or we love you all. This trip to British Columbia was amazing. I loved every minute of it. From swimming in the lake to cruising all day. I wouldnt change a thing. Not to mention the amazing food and crew on board. Sally, you are so sweet and an amazing cook , undeniable the sweetest, most patient woman I have ever met and I am a better person for knowing you. Fran, we had so much fun talking about random things and Im glad I have met you, you are an amazing person. Captain Jennifer, he he, what can I say, your funny, sweet and serious all at the same time, just so fun to be around. I would have never dreamed of a better trip and better people to spend it with. God bless you and stay safe. Your up and coming. Love always,

San Juan’s Yacht Charters

  • « Previous post

Know Here about the San Juan's Yacht Charters

Majestic. Awe Inspiring. Inspirational – A Magical Experience You'll Never Forget

San Juan's Yacht Charters is here to make your vacation unforgettable. The Pacific Northwest is home to a myriad of wildlife. It boasts diverse ecosystems, ranging from the mountain ranges to the numerous island and waterways and to the open ocean. The Pacific Northwest is home to bears, elk, mountain lions, eagles, salmon, giant Pacific octopus, whales, and many more! The highlight for most visitors is the resident and transient orcas, humpback whales, minke whales, and gray whales.

The waters surrounding the Pacific Northwest offer some of the most diverse whale and wildlife viewing on the west coast. There are only a few things more magical in this world than watching whales in their natural habitat. The regions across the world provide whale watching opportunities that are as diverse as the whale species. Humpbacks, 40-60ft. In length are found in waters surrounding Washington State and British Columbia while the playful black and white orcas live throughout the year in the waters of the Pacific Northwest's San Juan Islands.

We, at Pacific Northwest Yacht Charters , have luxurious San Juan's Yacht Charters and experienced guides who can educate guests about the specific whale's species during a whale watching tour. This can help you to have a memorable and unique experience for guests of all ages. The best time to go for whale watching at San Juan's Yacht Charters  is from April through September. Types of whales you can come across in the Pacific Northwest:

Southern Resident Killer Whales – Southern resident killer whales are some of the most researched whales in the world. They spend much of their time in the waters around Washington and British Columbia throughout the year feeding on their favorite food - Chinook salmon. This group of killers whales is very playful, acrobatic and at the same time social too.

Transient Killer Whales – Spotting transient orca whales in the waters of the Pacific Northwest is common due to an increase in their prey – harbor seals, California and Steller sea lions and harbor porpoise. Watching transient orcas hunt is very interesting and exciting! In the recent past, transient and bigg's killer whales have become more prevalent. They eat marine mammals: seals, sea lions, porpoise, dolphins – even other whales!

Humpback Whales – Over the last few years, humpback whales have made a comeback to the waters of Pacific Northwest in large numbers. Humpback whales are one of the most beloved and recognized whales in the world. Found in all the world's oceans, each humpback whale has a unique personality and appearance. If you're lucky enough you might spot mother humpbacks that nurse their calves with San Juan's Yacht Charters .

Minke Whales – Considered to be one of the most mysterious marine animals of the Pacific Northwest area, they are the most loved of all. Minkes are relatively solitary and spend their time feeding on schools of small baitfish. Minke whales can be found by smell alone - their breath is quite memorable! If you are lucky enough to catch a whiff, it is an experience that will long be remembered with San Juan's Yacht Charters .

Gray Whales – Currently, gray whales hold the record of the longest mammal migration as they travel from coldwater feeding grounds to the warm calving lagoons in Baja, Mexico. Gray whales are the only bottom-feeding whale, which means there are very rare instances that they will scoop up an entire mouthful of the sea floor. While they feed in the shallow, calm waters – it is indeed a sight to behold.

We at Pacific Northwest Yacht Charters, offer custom private tour experiences for couples, groups and families, with complimentary itinerary planning and personalized attention to detail. When on board your own Private Yacht Charter in Seattle , you get to spend more time with wildlife and less in transit. Your private and customized whale watching tour will guarantee the most authentic and personalized experience to you and your group.

The tours are hosted by knowledgeable and personable guides, dedicated to make your excursion a great one. We’ll take great care of you.

We can also provide yacht charters for other water sports activities such as Scuba Charter in Seattle , Fishing Charter Pacific Northwest , snorkeling and swimming to help you have a more memorable time in the Pacific Northwest along with whale watching at San Juan's Yacht Charters . The types of yachts vary as do your interest, and so it is the goal of Pacific Northwest Yacht Charters to align you with what suits you best. The cost of chartering each vessel varies and is dependent on the size and how long you will be chartering our vessel.

Rent a Boat in Seattle

The combination of wildlife encounters and exquisite scenery plus renowned food, culture, and events, put Seattle at the forefront of our top boating destinations list. Seattle’s Elliot Bay opens into Puget Sound , offering all the sights the Pacific Northwest has to offer. But don’t forget two of the region’s boating gems: Lake Union and Lake Washington.

What To Know

The most popular boat rental styles in Seattle include:

Bowriders, which are ideal for your typical summer boat day in the Puget Sound or any of the area’s nearby lakes, allowing for versatility whether you’re ready for watersports, dock-and-dining, or general day cruising.

Cruisers are also a hot commodity, particularly for night boating or cooler days in the fall. They also are able to hold more passengers to accommodate bachelorette/bachelor parties, or company outings.

Trawlers and houseboats are also widely popular in the Pacific Northwest, with houseboats filling up many of Seattle’s marinas. Trawlers are great for long-distance cruising north to the San Juan Islands or into the Salish Sea leading into the Pacific Ocean.

Only experienced boaters will want to try long-distance or overnight cruising to the San Juan Islands or beyond. Be sure to communicate with the boat’s owner to plan your own rental itinerary and ask for local recommendations for each of Seattle’s popular bodies of water.

Safety Requirements:

Boating License/Education Rules : Washington residents born after January 1, 1955 who operate vessels with 15-horsepower or higher, must carry a Washington Boater Education Card and be over 14 years of age or older in order to operate a boat or personal watercraft (PWCs).

Life Jacket Requirements : Children ages 12 and under must wear a PFD.

For more information, visit the Washington State Recreation & Conservation Office .

Where to dock your boat, or meet your rental:

Mohai Play Field

Sunnyside Boat Ramp

14th Ave NW Boat Ramp

Fisherman's Terminal Marina

Lake Union Piers

Weather Conditions

Seattle summers are the best time to be out on the water, while the rest of the year is typically much colder and rainy. Keep in mind, the year-round water temperatures are a bit cooler than what most boaters might expect. The wet winter season runs from October through March, but does present some opportunities for anglers who participate in the winter salmon season (blackmouth) from January to the end of March.

Avg. Temperature High : Peaks around 80°F in August

Avg. Temperature Low : Around 36-42°F during winter months, from November through April.

Avg. Water Temperatures in and around Seattle :

48°F in the Spring (April, May, June)

53°F in the Summer (July, August, September)

50°F in Fall (October, November)

44°F in Winter (December, January, February, March)

Seattle Boating

Things to Do in Seattle by Boat

Cruise the Bell Harbor Marina

Cruise to Bell Harbor Marina

The marina isn’t just a place to dock; it’s a jumping-off point for a huge list of Seattle sights and destinations. Grab lunch or dinner at Anthony’s, take a stroll along the water, or just admire the view. Located in the Port of Seattle, boaters can dock and head inland to check out Pike Place Market, the Seattle Aquarium, the Space Needle, and much more.

Pro Tip : Every February, Bell Harbor Marina and Pier 66 play host to the Seattle Boat Show, taking place both indoors and on the docks, featuring new boats for sale, educational seminars, and pop-up shops.

Location : Google Maps Link

Docking and moorage fees : Guest moorage is available year-round for vessels up to 170’. Prices vary depending on boat size and style, but powerboats under 50’ can expect to pay $2.06/ft/per day on Mon-Thurs during peak season (June - Sept.), and $2.18/ft/per day year-round on the weekends. Save on docking rates by booking a reservation at least 24-hours in advance.

Lat/Long : 47.6106° N, 122.3485° W

Ballard Locks Boating

‘Locking Through’ the Ballard Locks

Special Note: This adventure is for experienced boaters only—talk to your boat owner first or book with a professional captain! The Ballard (Hiram M. Chittenden) Locks are a popular Seattle attraction and a historic site operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that connect Salmon Bay to Shilshole Bay. As one of the busiest locking systems in the U.S., both the large and small lock chambers are open 24/7, and during the peak summer season can expect to be packed full of boaters—from sailors to powerboaters, large tug boats, and even kayaks.

Pro Tip : Keep an eye on the water levels, as the water can drop dramatically—almost three stories—at low tide. Likewise, the small lock chamber (100ft long and 26ft wide) is the easiest area to navigate, as you can tie up to the side walls to make your pass through.

Location :  Google Maps Link

Closest marinas : Lockhaven Marina, Seaborn Marina, McGinnis Marina, or Stimson Marina.

Lat/Long : 47.6655° N, 122.3972° W

Salmon Fishing Seattle

Go Salmon Fishing

Seattle is known worldwide for its  salmon fisheries , particularly in Puget Sound. Top salmon species include blackmouth, chinook, chum, coho, pink, and sockeye.  Booking a fishing charter can help less experienced anglers navigate the local waterways, and help uncover some of the prime hot spots, including: Possession Sound, President Point, Point No Point, and Double Bluff. For the best chance at hooking your first salmon, stick to areas where there are strong currents and fast-moving bodies of water colliding to force baitfish together.

Pro Tip : Warmer-weather months are the go-to season for salmon fishing, but anglers will want to keep a close eye on local regulations that change from year-to-year. 

Other target species : Halibut, lingcod, steelhead trout

Seasonality : June through September is peak season, while blackmouth, juvenile king, and chum salmon can be caught later in the season until late fall or even during winter months.

Boat selection : Walkaround boats, pilothouse boats, aluminum fishing boats, and bay boats.

Where to Go Boating in Seattle

Puget Sound Seattle

Puget Sound

Boaters coming from Seattle, Olympia, Tacoma, Everett and other surrounding cities flock to Puget Sound to enjoy breathtaking views of snow-capped Mt. Rainier, and to explore untouched nature and wildlife at its finest within the northwestern island chains and peninsulas. Puget Sound is a popular entryway for long-distance cruisers looking to explore the San Juan Islands, located just north and bordering Victoria, Canada. 

Moorage : If you’re coming from downtown Seattle, try one of the northernmost marinas, Shilshole Bay Marina or Elliott Bay Marina, for easy access to Puget Sound.

Wake zone : Yes - also keep an eye out for navigational buoys directing marine traffic.

Pro Tips : Calmer waters can be found in the southern end of the sound, while the northern area’s sea conditions can change dramatically depending on the weather.

Hours : Ready for exploration at any time of the year, the best time to visit Puget Sound is just before or after summer (May, June, September or October), as to avoid the bustling tourist season in the summer.

Lat/Long : 47.7237° N, 122.4713° W

Google Maps Link

Lake Union Boat Rentals

Lake Union is located just north of downtown Seattle, which makes it one of the best places to enjoy what this city is most known for: Its local waters and natural spaces, and the culture. The center of the lake happens to be a busy seaplane takeoff and landing zone throughout the summer months, so be conscious of the zoned buoys and flashing lights. Boaters can also enjoy great views of the Space Needle, while history buffs can dock up to visit the Museum of History and Industry or the Center for Wooden Boats—both located in the southern end of the lake.

Moorage : The shores of Lake Union are lined with countless marinas and landings available long-term or short-term dockage. Check the northeastern and northwestern areas for the most options.

Wake zone : Yes - boaters should also familiarize themselves with Lake Union’s “#MindTheZone” campaign before navigating the area without a captain, and keep an eye out for flashing white buoys that designate the seaplane landing zones between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Pro Tips : On the north end of the lake, located minutes away from any moorage, explore an old Gas Works Park, where you can have a picnic in the grass, or just enjoy the view of seaplanes taking off and landing in Lake Union.

Hours : Be ready for crowded waterways on big holiday or event weekends, including “Opening Day” taking place in early May at the Montlake Cut, the Fourth of July, and the Seafair Weekend Festival.

Lat/Long : 47.6396° N, 122.3333° W

Lake Washington Boat Rentals

Lake Washington

Located between Seattle and Bellevue, Lake Washington is the second largest natural lake in the state which connects to Puget Sound through Lake Union. The lake is primed for family boating adventures such as watersports, fishing, and swimming, but couples will want to make time in their itinerary to stop at Carillon Point or the Kirkland Marina Docks to grab a romantic dinner and do some shopping.

Moorage : Short-term anchorage is available in Andrews Bay and marked by two buoys showing the letter “A” on the northwest and southwest corners. Other popular marinas include Lakewood Moorage and the North Lake Marina.

Wake zone : Yes - speed regulations of 7-knots (8-MPH) are in place within 100-yards of shore, docks, bridges or other fixed objects. In Andrews Bay, the speed limit is 3-knots. During the Seafair races, Lake Washington from the I-90 floating bridge to Seward park is a no-wake zone.

Pro Tips : Lake Washington’s 1.5 miles of shoreline is host to Seattle’s infamous Seafair Weekend Festival, taking place annually each August. Be sure to book your boat rentals early for this event, and get ready to enjoy the best on-water view of the airshow featuring the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.

Hours : Scuba diving is restricted to daylight hours only and divers must deploy a dive flag. Water skiing is also prohibited within 100-yards of shore or fixed objects.

About Washington

Why is Washington a good sailing destination?

Nestled in the Pacific Northwest, Washington State emerges as a sailing paradise, beckoning nautical enthusiasts to its mesmerizing waterways and scenic coastlines. The question isn’t whether Washington is a good sailing destination, but rather, how could it not be? With Yachting.Rent, we delve into the heart of Washington’s maritime allure, offering insight into the treasures that make it a must-sail region for adventurers and tranquility seekers alike.

Firstly, Washington’s geographical diversity is unmatched. The state boasts a rich tapestry of sailing backdrops, from the serene inlets of Puget Sound to the challenging tides of the Pacific Coast. The San Juan Islands, often termed the “jewel of the Pacific Northwest,” offer a labyrinth of over 400 islands and rocks, many of which remain uninhabited. These islands serve as idyllic anchorages, where sailors can find solitude amidst verdant landscapes and pristine beaches. But it’s not just about tranquility. The dynamic waters around Washington promise exhilarating sailing experiences, be it navigating the tidal narrows or riding the winds of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Beyond the natural grandeur, Washington’s maritime heritage adds a layer of richness to the sailing experience. Towns like Port Townsend, with its historic seaport and celebrated Wooden Boat Festival, weave tales of a bygone era where tall ships and maritime legends reigned supreme. Bellingham, Olympia, and Seattle, among others, offer vibrant waterfronts, brimming with seafood eateries, maritime museums, and bustling marinas. With Yachting.Rent, we make it our mission to not only guide sailors through these enchanting waterways but also to introduce them to the cultural tapestry that embodies Washington’s love affair with the sea.

Lastly, it’s essential to highlight the environmental consciousness that defines Washington. The state has been at the forefront of marine conservation, ensuring that its waters remain a sanctuary for diverse marine life. Orcas, gray whales, and seals are common sights, making every sailing trip a potential wildlife expedition. The emphasis on sustainable practices also means pristine waters and protected marine ecosystems, ensuring that sailors experience nature in its purest form.

In essence, Washington stands as a symphony of experiences. A place where nature’s grandeur intertwines with rich maritime traditions, where each tide brings with it tales of adventure, and where the horizon promises undiscovered treasures. At Yachting.Rent, we believe that Washington isn’t just a sailing destination; it’s a journey into the soul of the Pacific Northwest. A journey that beckons, enchants, and promises memories that linger long after the sails are lowered. So, if the sea calls out to you, let Washington’s waters be your answer. With Yachting.Rent as your guide, embark on a nautical odyssey like no other.

What Choose

Sailing boat or Catamaran, what to sail in Washington

Sailing in Washington State’s vast waters is a deeply rewarding experience, with its intertwined network of channels, bays, and islands making it a sailor’s paradise. Yet, a common question lingers: Should one opt for a sailing boat or a catamaran to explore Washington’s maritime beauty? At Yachting.Rent, we provide a comprehensive guide to help navigate this choice, ensuring that every sailor finds the perfect vessel to match their needs and aspirations.

A traditional sailing boat, often referred to as a monohull, is a classic choice for many. Its slender design allows for a closer and more intimate connection with the water. Sailing boats are known for their ability to tack (change direction) swiftly, making them particularly adept at navigating through Washington’s many narrow channels and inlets. Their deep keel provides stability in varied conditions, from the calm waters of the Puget Sound to the more turbulent waves of the Pacific. For those yearning for a genuine, unfiltered sailing experience, where every gust of wind and ripple in the water is felt, a sailing boat is unparalleled. Its design also often means a cozier interior, which can be an advantage for those seeking a more intimate onboard environment.

On the other hand, catamarans have gained immense popularity in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. With their twin hulls, catamarans offer a broader deck space, providing ample room for relaxation and entertainment. This design also translates to larger living areas below deck, making them ideal for families or groups looking for spacious accommodations. Stability is another key feature of catamarans. Their wide stance on the water ensures minimal tilting, a feature particularly appreciated by those prone to seasickness. When it comes to anchoring near the many islands of Washington, the shallow draft of a catamaran makes it easier to get close to the beach. Additionally, the trampoline area between the two hulls is a favored spot for many, allowing sailors to relax and soak in the beauty of Washington’s landscapes.

In conclusion, the choice between a sailing boat and a catamaran truly hinges on individual preferences. Those seeking a traditional and visceral sailing experience might lean towards a sailing boat. In contrast, those valuing space, stability, and modern amenities might find a catamaran more to their liking. Whichever vessel you choose, Yachting.Rent ensures a seamless journey, equipped with top-tier amenities and safety features. Washington’s waters, with their unique blend of calm inlets and challenging passages, promise an unforgettable sailing experience. And with Yachting.Rent by your side, you have the assurance of a trusted partner, guiding you through every wave and every sunset, making your nautical adventure in Washington a memory to cherish.

Stop in at the ever popular Pike Place Market or the Seattle Art Museum during the day without giving a second thought to traffic. Dine in on the yacht with an on board chef or opt out to one of the many 4-Star and 4.5-Star rated restaurants and bars with docks available for boarding along the lake.

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, Yacht Charters, Marina


Because of its long days and humid free cool temperatures in the summer, Seattle makes for a great yachting destination. Music, art, culture and a ridiculous amount of places to dine can keep one busy cruising around while never having a doubt that they can't possibly take it all in with a one day charter. For yachting enthusiast, a well planned itinerary is not a suggestion but a necessity when chartering a vessel in the waters of Seattle.

The Orca Whales that reside in the waters of the San Juan Islands are world-renowned as are the islands and have been selected as one of the Top 5 Islands in both Canada and the U.S. by Travel & Leisure Magazine. While many choose to go by sailboat, the overwhelming choice is by luxury yacht. Perhaps for the privacy, exclusivity and complete control over where you drop anchor are among just a few of the reasons why those who can, do. To go to San Juan and back to Seattle in a day is achievable by yacht, but to experience the true beauty of the island we recommend an overnight. Upon arriving at San Juan, there is a bucket list of possibilities from shopping, where to dine, hiking, biking the island, lying out at Eagle Cove Beach or taking in a spa treatment, and there is no need to worry too much about rain since the islands are home to 250 days of sun annually. With so much to do, there can't possibly be enough time to do it all in a day, but a day is just enough time to take in the views and the ambiance of what the San Juan's have to offer. The lodging is absolutely wonderful on the islands but not a necessity when arriving by yacht as most luxury yachts come with accommodations fit for a king.

The Pacific Northwest is a region in western North America bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the west and, loosely, by the Rocky Mountains on the east. Though no universally agreed upon boundary exists, a common conception includes the U.S. states of Oregon, Washington, and the Canadian province of British Columbia. Broader conceptions reach north into Alaska and Yukon, south into the coastal and mountainous regions of Northern California, and east into Idaho and western Montana, and western Wyoming to the Continental Divide. Narrower conceptions may be limited to the Northwestern U.S. or to the coastal areas west of the Cascade and Coast mountains.  The Northwest Coast is the coastal regions of the Pacific Northwest and the Northwest Plateau (also commonly known as "The Interior" in British Columbia and the Inland Empire in the United States) is the inland regions. A yacht charter vacation in this region usually includes the areas surrounding the Puget Sound, the second largest estuary in the USA with over 2300 miles of coastline and the San Juan Islands. 

Starting at South Lake Union in the heart of Seattle, charters usually cruise Lake Union and through the Montlake Cut, while bridges open for our tall masts. Then sail wherever the winds take you on Lake Washington until returning to Seattle's skyline framed by snow covered mountains.

On your way, check out the houseboats made famous by Sleepless in Seattle, or bald eagles nesting on the tree-lined shore. An ideal way to enjoy Seattle's evergreen wonderland away from the bustle of city streets.

Montlake Cut:  The Montlake Cut is the easternmost section of the Lake Washington Ship Canal, which passes through the city of Seattle, linking Lake Washington to Puget Sound. It is approximately 2,500 feet (760 m) long and 350 feet (110 m) wide. The center channel is 100 feet (30 m) wide and 30 feet (9.1 m) deep. The path along the cut was designated a National Recreation Trail as Montlake Cut National Waterside in 1971.[1]

The Cut provides a connection between Union Bay, part of Lake Washington, to the east and Portage Bay, an arm of Lake Union, to the west. It is spanned by the Montlake Bridge, a bascule drawbridge carrying Montlake Boulevard (State Route 513). Most of the land on the north shore of the Cut is occupied by the University of Washington, its medical school to the west and its stadium parking lot to the east; residences and a recreational trail occupy the south bank, which is part of the Montlake neighborhood. It is the site of the annual Windermere Cup crew regatta and the Seattle Yacht Club's Opening Day Boat Parade, both of which take place on the first Saturday in May. Puget Sound Boat Rental:  The Puget Sound region is home to the majority of Washington State citizens who live in the bustling cities and suburbs that extend north to south from Stanwood to Olympia. Most Puget Sound communities lie on either side of the north-south Interstate 5 corridor that serves as the major traffic thoroughfare of the state.

Puget Sound itself is a body of water lying east of Admiralty Inlet, through which ocean waters reach inland some 50 miles from the Pacific Coast to provide all-weather ports for ocean-going ships at Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia. The waterway is a complex and intricate system of channels, inlets, estuaries, embayments and islands.

Ballard Locks:   Tourists and locals enjoy watching the parade of yachts, sailboats, motorboats, barges and tugs passing through as the locks' water levels are adjusted to allow for safe passage between the salt water and the fresh water of the ship canal. Tillicum Village:  Tillicum Village is a Puget Sound area visitor attraction located on Blake Island just off the shore of Seattle, WA. It is believed that this attraction dates to the time period immediately preceding the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. Madison Park:  Madison Park is a neighborhood in east central Seattle, Washington, USA, named after the city park at the foot of E. Madison Street on the Lake Washington shore Estates on Mercer Island:  Mercer Island Estates is the largest South End neighborhood located just south of the QFC shopping center and Mercer Island Country Club. This planned community was built in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and includes homes in a variety of styles, including mid-century modern, traditional, and Northwest contemporary. With wide streets and plenty of cul-de-sacs, this neighborhood is popular with families, who also enjoy Wildwood Park and its proximity to the nearby South End shopping center.

Fremont Cut:  The Fremont Cut is a body of water that forms part of the Lake Washington Ship Canal, which passes through the U.S. city of Seattle and links Lake Washington to Puget Sound. The Fremont Cut connects Lake Union to the east with Salmon Bay to the west. It is 5,800 feet (1,800 m) long and 270 feet (82 m) wide. The center channel is 100 feet (30 m) wide and 30 feet (9.1 m) deep.

The Fremont Cut is spanned by the Fremont Bridge, a bascule drawbridge that connects the neighborhoods of Fremont and Queen Anne via Fremont Avenue North. A campus of Adobe Systems and the headquarters for Tableau Software are located at the north-eastern quadrant of this intersection of bridge and canal, and an office of Google is located on the north-western quadrant. Meydenbauer Bay in Bellevue:  The Bellevue Marina lies between the foot of 99th Avenue Northeast and 100th Avenue Southeast on the south side of downtown Bellevue. Depending upon the pier, the marina may be accessed from either street. From Interstate 405, take the NE 8th Street exit west. Turn left on Bellevue Way Southeast. Turn right on Main Street and proceed until reaching either the 100th Avenue Southeast or 99th Avenue Northeast intersections (Please note that Main Street turns into Lake Washington Boulevard Northeast at the 100th Avenue Southeast intersection.) Estate with Full T-Rex skeleton inside: Nathan Myhrvold became fascinated with dinosaurs and visited the filming of the “Jurassic Park” sequel in 1996 and met the film’s consultant and world-leading paleontologist, Jack Horner. Horner convinced Nathan to use some of his Microsoft multimillions to fund a dinosaur bone digging foundation. His foundation has recovered more tyrannosaurus rex skeletons than the total previously found by everyone else. He has given most of them to museums including the Smithsonian. In-side the big rounded windows of his living room he has one of the t-rex skeletons he helped dig up.

Bill Gates House: Originally purchasing the lakefront property for $2 million in 1988, Gates has done everything in his power to ensure his dream home doesn't have a negative impact on the environment. Built into a hill as part of its earth-sheltered design, Gates was concerned about potential runoff from the walls of the massive estate. To combat the problem, he collaborated with the two architectural firms who designed the home to create an artificial stream on the property to catch the runoff. And, in true Gates fashion, he took the design up a notch and has the stream stocked with salmon and trout giving even the wildlife a fisheye view of the most expensive home in America.

Fisherman's Terminal –  Fishermen's Terminal is a dock for Seattle, Washington's commercial fishing fleet, on Salmon Bay in the Interbay neighborhood, east of the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks and immediately west of the Ballard Bridge.

Hunts Point & City of Kirkland:   Incorporated in 1955, the Town of Hunts Point is located on the eastern shore of Lake Washington just north of the SR520 bridge. Once a camping ground for the Sammamish Indian tribe, this residential community of single-family residences is home to just under 500 residents. Hunts Point is one of the smallest municipalities in Western Washington, yet its bucolic feel and proximity to Seattle and the Eastside help make it a highly desirable place to live. Seattle Skyline: From 1903 to 1904, Seattle's tallest building and first steel-framed skyscraper is constructed. The Alaska Building, located at the southeast corner of 2nd Avenue and Cherry Street, rises 14 stories

husky stadium:  Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium is an outdoor football stadium on the campus of the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington, United States.

Our Guests Love Us​

Latest reviews​.

"The camaraderie between these two sailors was so palpable and fun to be around, and both Scott and Todd are so mellow and easy going— we just laughed and smiled and talked about a million things and loved the time. The freedom to go where we wanted, to kayak, to sail!, to hang out on the boat, whatever we chose, made the adventure so unstructured and open.

It is hard also to find sufficient praise for the food. Todd’s food is the stuff of legends. It was beyond delicious, and so carefully crafted to our tastes!

I think anyone who likes adventure, loves sailing, and wants to be happy for six days should join Captain Scott and Todd, soon - this season when it’s all available and happening! - and call themselves blessed. A once in a lifetime experience, except I hope not, as we plan to return!"


Donelle Morgan

"Wonderful hosts. Great sailing. The food was excellent and so personalized. The boat is very comfortable. Exceeded our expectations."

Susan J. Smith

"After scheduling a five day sailing cruise with North West Sailing Adventures, I anticipated beautiful scenery, amazing wildlife, and incredible waterways. What I did not anticipate is the incredible professionalism, kindness and dedication of our amazing crew, Captain Scott and First Mate/Chef Todd. They were so knowledgeable of the area, and made every effort to accommodate our every wish or request. The meals were delicious, beautifully plated, as well as healthy, and the humorous banter between the crew members only added to the fun and memories of an amazing adventure!

I can say, without a doubt, that this sailing trip to the San Juan Islands with NW Sailing Adventures was, without question, one of the best vacations ever!  Thank you, Captain Scott and First Mate Todd for providing us with such a memorable adventure.  And please save us a slot next season, we will be back!”

Mae Pierini - Nipomo, CA

Our trip was a great success. We are sailors and Scott is the most knowledgeable sailor we have met. Moreover the navigation and radar equipment is top grade enabling motoring in a morning of deep fog with ease. We sailed for 4 nights (5 days) and winds enabled us to sail without motor assistance for many hours a day. The islands are lovely and a big surprise was the looming, snow capped Mt Baker in the background on several occasions. Seals were abundant and on one occasion we saw half a dozen sea lions sunning themselves on a nearby rock. Tod the mate was also the cook who trained for 2 years in a cooking school. The food was excellent and every effort was made--successfully--to meet the requests we had submitted prior to the cruise. We enthusiastically recommend this cruise company.
