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.

What an amazing experience! This was a wonderful surprise for my husbands birthday and could not have been better. Captain Scott was kind, personable, and the perfect host. He is a local, very passionate and knowledgeable of the area, and had answers to all our questions. A lovely treat and great way to spend an afternoon!

Scott was very congenial, accommodating to what we wanted from the experience and knowledgeable about the area. It was a cold day and no wind - but lovely to be on the water. Will do again!

Highly recommend going on this sailing adventure! I got to see and take selfies with sea lions! You get to learn about the area and its history and the captain will even let you steer the boat.

Captain Scott is great at what he does! He makes his guests feel welcome, and provides great stories about the area, a little lesson on sailing, and gets you involved so have the best experience. First time out to Seattle, but I’ll be sure to book Captain Scott for my next visit and probably each after that so long as he’s in business!
