What you'll do

Step aboard Oh Joy II on magical Bainbridge Island and let the wind and your whims take you sailing along the Seattle waterfront, around Blake Island or into the sunset!
Bainbridge Island is a short ferry ride from downtown Seattle, and Oh Joy II is only a short stroll away. On your way through our little town, you can take the time to explore quaint shops, wine and beer tastings, galleries and some amazing restaurants.
Aboard Oh Joy II, once we leave the dock, you'll have the opportunity to take the helm, hoist the sails and share an amazing experience.
You'll get a whole new perspective of the Seattle skyline. Most days, you'll see magnificent Mt. Hood looming regally in the distance while you sail beneath the snow-capped peaks of both the Olympic and Cascade mountains.
Seals, sea lions and porpoises make regular appearances, along with bald eagles and families of otters.
Whales show up occasionally, with orca sightings happening regularly.
You're welcome bring snacks and beverages or even take-out dinner or lunch.
Ask us about our 4-hour, all-day and over-night adventures.
But most importantly, come sail with us!
Other things to note
Expect temps to be about 10° cooler on the water and dress accordingly. Sun hats and sun screen are encouraged. Most importantly, bring whomever you've dreamt of sharing an experience like this with.

Where you'll be

Oh Joy II will take you places that you can't get to otherwise. Your private sail will put you at the helm as we explore the incredible natural diversity of Puget Sound.
But while you're on the island, take the time to explore the shops, local breweries, wineries and distilleries, gorgeous waterfront park, or lose all semblance of control at any of our addictive ice cream, gelatto or chocolate shops. Beware.

My sailing adventure with Harry and one other guest was a great time. Harry’s instructions and directions were meticulous. The ferry terminal is a 15 minute walk from the boat, through the quaint and picturesque downtown area. Lots of good coffee shops, bakeries, etc, with lots of good suggestions from Harry. The sailboat ride was beautiful and I learned a little about sailing and am inspired to take some lessons now! The only thing is that I wish I had worn more layers!
