It’s more fun in pairs! Our liveaboard Cruise & Learns allow you to learn alongside other people with the same goals. Many of our participants make friends that last a lifetime. Learning to sail and become a skilled power boater is even more fun with someone you know. When you register for one of our Cruise & Learn courses or join an Adventure as part of a group – bring a friend or partner to share your private cabin and enjoy 50% OFF for your cabin-mate.
Visit our Calendar of Trainings & Adventures for dates and details.
Do you want to cross the Salish Sea? Build your boating resume? Spend some time with our most trusted skippers? If you’re a local with a flexible schedule our Delivery Crew Mileage Builder opportunities could be the perfect fit.
Sign up below to join our list of local delivery crew people who will be notified (often with short notice) to join us as we reposition our fleet between our bases or to other areas within the region for 1- to 2- day deliveries. This is a true delivery experience requiring flexibility and a good attitude – rain or shine.
No experience required. Participants must arrange their own transportation to/from the delivery location, bring/contribute to their own meals, pack appropriate gear for the relevant weather conditions, and be flexible about weather and departure/arrival timing. All vessels are equipped with relevant safety equipment and bedding.
Full payment is required at the time of registration. Participants must be COVID-free and willing to take a COVID-19 test on demand. No refunds will be issued for illness or failure to appear at the scheduled time. All deliveries are weather dependent. In the event that a delivery does not commence within 36 hours of scheduled departure due to weather or mechanical delays, refunds will be issued if delays require participants to cancel.
Cost per person:
$595.00 Boat Show Season Special $425.00
