Russ is a fun extremely personable great Captain. we could not have asked for a better afternoon on the water in the sailboat. nothing was said to us about what we may see and we had no idea whales would be there and we saw several. 3 within 20ft of the boat. My wife and daughter had never been on a boat before and today was the absolute highlight of their summer and mine too. Thank You Russ for a great wonderful cruise. To anyone giving thought to this sailboat cruise dont wait it is more than worth it in every way. great memories will be made that is for sure. Marc
My husband and I traveled from North Dakota to WA to visit some friends. This was our very first sailing experience and we had so much fun. We were lucky enough to spot a few orcas in Puget Sound. Captain Russ was very nice and accommodating. The boat was beautiful. I would highly recommend booking a cruise with Captain Dylan/Russ if one is ever in the Seattle area. You will not be disappointed. We would definitely book again.
This was our second excursion with this company- first on Lake Washington and next on Puget Sound. We had a fantastic time (6 people). From the start Captain Russ was proactive in his communication and the sail was a beautiful afternoon and view. Highly recommend and we will book back again.
We had the best Sunday with Captain Russ! We definitely weren’t the quietest group of girls and he didn’t seem to mind that at all. It was great to learn about sailing as it was all our first time and Russ was happy to share about his experience. A fun day out on the water with great Seattle weather was everything we wanted, and the awesome captain was a plus! Would recommend this to anyone that’s itching to get out on the water. It’s so worth it, especially because you don’t have to book crazy in advance either. Thanks again Captain Russ!
From start to finish, this company was an absolutely pleasure to work and play with. Setting up our trip and reserving it was a breeze. Our captain Russ was great! Gave us an excellent tour despite the sky being a bit on the gloomy side. He assured us we’d still get a gorgeous sunset and we absolutely did. We also got to take turns going up to the front of the boat. When we arrived he was waiting by the dock before leading us to the sailboat so he wasn’t hard to find at all. Will use them again and highly recommend to others.
Captain Dylan is a young man that has pursued many avenues and aspired to be many things. He spent time in the commercial diving industry, traveling to Alaska and Louisiana. He spent time in the cruise industry working for Holland America in the Yukon Territory and Alaska. He then decided to return to Seattle with the intention of rejoining the restaurant industry to become a bartender, go to college, and live on a boat. Dylan had no idea how he would fall in love with the Puget Sound live aboard lifestyle, and his first boat. “Candére” is a 28’ long Thomley cabin cruiser. She was built in Auburn, Washington in 1972. When Dylan purchased her in 2011, she was fully functional, but old and tired. After many breakdowns and misadventures he decided that he needed a new boat, or needed to restore Candére to better than new condition. With a rudimentary base of knowledge in woodworking, mechanics, and electrical, as well as an uncanny drive and work ethic, Dylan embarked on a journey that would utilize and enhance these skills and instincts that have come to define him in a mere 26 years. Now a skilled craftsman, artist, mixologist, and Coast Guard licensed Captain, Dylan, his father, and a few of his closest friends are excited to share the beauty and joy that is Seattle and the Pacific Northwest.
