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.

I am the managing owner of Sail Rumbera LLC and a licensed charter captain. I offer sailing adventures on my 34 foot sailboat from the conveniently located Bainbridge Island City Dock, as well as 4 day/3 night sailing excursions in the beautiful San Juan Islands north of Seattle for couples. With over 40 years of experience on the water, I enjoy introducing guests to our special part of the world. I offer an intimate sailing adventure (up to six people) to our guests while explaining the local Bainbridge Island history and landmarks to them. Those who want to help sail the boat will receive some instruction and a turn at the wheel.

Scott is very obviously skilled in the craft of sailing as well as caring for others. Our experience on his boat was more than exceptional. He was mindful of how we wanted to spend the time, asked us where we wanted to go, taught us some sailing techniques, and even let a few of us try it out behind the wheel! He has many stories to tell and will make you feel like you matter just by asking questions. The trip is what you want it to be. Scott is flexible, personable, and wonderful company. We would highly recommend spending a few hours with Scott on his tsail boat!

Sailing was an exciting experience. It was both my son’s and I first experience on a sailboat and we couldn’t have been happier with the experience. My son especially. Scott is very knowledgeable and only makes it that much more interesting to be part of this experience.

What a trip! Scott met us with a smiling face and we knew we were in for an excellent adventure on the water in his sailboat. He was a great conversationalist and gave us a history lesson of the area. Just a nice day on the water with someone who is passionate about being a Captain!

Captain Scott is the man!!! Such a great guide and really wonderful person. The tour was exceptional, well worth the money, and you even get to sail the boat too - how cool is that. Don’t be intimidated either, you’re in good hands with him. He has a very “Bob Ross” like quality to his teaching. We had a total blast and will be going on future sailings with him without a doubt.
