Anacortes, Washington is a beautiful, small waterfront city in Skagit County, Northwest Washington. A perfect getaway in itself before reaching the San Juan Islands, one part of Anacortes is also located on an island, known as Fidalgo Island. Anacortes offers island living at its best, but with the convenience of being able to drive on to the island! One bridge links the Fidalgo Island to the mainland, while another links it to Whidbey Island. Anacortes has two ferry terminals – a very quaint one that takes you to nearby Guemes Island, and the large terminal which has ferries traveling to the San Juan Islands and the Gulf and Vancouver Islands of Canada. Sunsets, a gorgeous harbor, fresh seafood restaurants, whale watching, sailboats and harbor seals are some of the gems that Anacortes offers.
The placid waters are rimmed by lush forests giving way to rural farmland. In the middle of it all is a vibrant and friendly downtown, with a variety of art galleries, a popular farmer's market, a library, and cafes. Deception Pass State Park features both marine and freshwater shoreline, forest trails, rugged cliffs, and breathtaking views. Boaters love dipping their canoes into the many lakes, and overnight campers at Deception Pass are soothed to sleep by the sound of waves.
We has a perfect day on the water to celebrate my mom's life with close family. Captain was so accomodating and made sure we got our full time in even though we had to delay our departure due to one party arriving late. Terje was flexible and respectful of our wishes and made the trip so easy. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute and highly recommend chatering with Terje. Will definitely sail with him again!
What a fun day sailing around the orcas . Nat was an amazing sailing instructor and we loved learning about sailing and checking out the islands by water . Would highly recommend doing this - highlight of the trip .
We had a great trip with Terje! It was a fun, authentic, sailing experience, where we got involved in helping with the sails and everything! He was very flexible and communicative leading up to our trip.
Terje was a fantastic host and went beyond expectation to get us out at the right time and prepared a great lunch for my group. Feel lucky to have found his service and will use him again!
Terje provided us a great sailing day. Our family had a great time exploring the islands and enjoying the water.
