As members of Pacific Whale Watch Association we are privy to the latest information on the whereabouts of whales.
Of things to do in Friday Harbor All Aboard Sailing offers a unique experience to charter a traditional wooden boat and sail with whales.
Close to nature encounters can include whale watching and listening to the sounds of Orca, Humpback and Minke whales. Visiting the haul-out rocks for Stellar Sea Lions and Harbor Seals. Witnessing the lives of Bald Eagles and Diving Seabirds.
Opportunities can include sailing to the more remote San Juan Islands Islands where we can go ashore with the Bullfrog tender. Experiencing wildflowers in the Spring, visiting lighthouses at the state parks, exploring areas of the San Juans that are off the beaten path.
S/V Peniel is a 1956 42' pilot house sloop of yellow cedar on steam bent oak. For extreme winter sailing comfort is assured with cozy mustang deck suits and pilot house. Full galley, barbecue, spacious decks - whale watching in style. Every trip is a different and memorable experience.
Take the helm, learn the lines and participate in sailing under the guidance of USCG licensed Captain David Howitt and naturalist Captain Barbara Bender.
We are the only sailing company to be members of Pacific Whale Watch Association. We offer half and full day sailing charters year round, San Juan Island and beyond.
