We went for a 7 day cruise all through out the San Juan Islands. There were 2 couples and a single person and 2 crew, one of which was an excellent Chef. We set sail onboard a 54' sail boat which was beautiful! As we set sail we met each other and learned a bit about each other. Once we cleared the harbor we raised the sails, the Main and the Jib. We didn't raise the 3rd sail as it was not needed. As soon as we got going I smelled something Delicious being cooked below by our personal Chef. As we soon learned, the meals were themselves a work of art. And we were served 3 of these a day!! Dave, the Captain, was very knowledgeable about the entire area, which was an excellent thing, of course.We sailed into a different bay every afternoon and set anchor. We were taken to the beach in a zodiac to explore the island. We always offered a choice of where we wanted to hike on each of the 6 islands we visited. After a wonderful hike we went back to "Our" boat. We then had a Fantastic dinner, including a bottle of wine. The Chef had been supplied with our basic food preference as part of the planning process which was done prior to arriving at the Island. Because of this all of us were served food which was to our liking.My wife and I had the Vacation of a lifetime! We saw a huge amount of wild life, beautiful sun rises, sun sets, and picture perfect days. I must say that Emerald Isle Sailing Charters provided us with one of the BEST Vacations we EVER have been on. The Boat was Fantastic, the Food was Excellent, and the sailing Out of this World. You have to go with Dave, the Captain and Owner of Emerald Isle Sailing Charters, to appreciate how PERFECT this vacation can be. We would come back for another Charter at the drop of a hat. I give this Charter a 5 star rating without a doubt. You will too when you go with Emerald Isle Sailing Charters for a vacation of a lifetime! - D.W Vancouver, WA
We Texans ( formerly from Washington State ) cannot say enough about the trip we took with Emerald Isle Sailing Charters ! The views were breathtaking, hikes on deserted islands were awesome, beautiful and pristine beaches, amazing sunsets and incredible wildlife and sea life ( we even sailed through a pod of Orca whales .. WOW! ) Captain Dave is a wealth of knowledge about the San Juans and so much more ... A man of many talents ! The food was unbelieveable and we still cannot believe that Katy whipped up those gormet meals in the galley ... dinners complete with candles. And she was a great first mate too! What Fun! A trip of a lifetime ... Thanks Y'all, Dave, Katy, Zanetha and Kimaya for a fantastic sailing experience we'll never forget ! Patty and Gary
