36' Sailing vessel Rosie will pick you up and drop you off on Lake Union in the heart of Seattle. On half-day sails we can go to Lake Washington, raising two historic drawbridges along the way.
Full day sails can go to Lake Washington or Puget Sound, including raising two historic drawbridges and getting lowered to sea level through the Ballard Locks.
We encourage participation in sailing this 36' yacht (though if you want to sit back and relax, you can do that, too). If you want, you'll learn the parts of a traditional sailboat, help hoist sails, handle the lines, and take the helm and sail the boat yourself! If you want to learn a few handy knots, just ask—we’re ready to teach you!
Amanda made our day simply wonderful! We had 3 adults and 2 small children. The adults and kids had equal amount of fun. We live in Seattle and had always wanted to get a sailing experience. Amanda let us relax, learn more about sailing and the kids got a turn at the wheel. We will definitely book again.
We had a fantastic time on our sailing with Amanda. She was professional and knowledgeable onboard Rosie and quick to respond to all communications. Rosie proved to be quite comfortable for our bachelorette party of six and it was a fun and unique experience for our out of town guests.
10/10 would recommend and go with Amanda again. She was so easy to work with. Was very quick on communicating to book and answered all of my questions. She texted the day before to make the day of the sail a breeze. Her boat is very nice and cozy. Amanda is very personable. I booked it the week of and she was able to make my birthday celebration kick off. Thank you so much again Amanda for the memorable experience!
We had a fantastic half day sail with Amanda. It was a last minute bday celebration. Amanda was extremely responsive & flexible. The boat was lovely, well maintained, plenty of room for our family of 5 with 2 kids (9.5 & 6). The boat is well stocked with dishes, cutlery etc. Amanda was very pleasant, knowledgeable and enjoyable to be with. We had a lovely celebration and will most definitely sail with Amanda again.
Amanda was amazing! We took our twin energetic almost 4 year old boys along and she had a plan to keep excited and engaged at all times. They steered, asked a lot of questions which Amanda answered very patiently. Amanda’s boat and her set up is extremely clean and kid friendly- perfect for a quick relaxed experience on the lake. We are looking forward to more trips with her in the next few months
My Family and I had a great day out with Amanda on Lake Washington. Going under the draw bridges and learning basic sailing functions were really fun to experience. We took our 3 kids with us (9/8/6 yr/olds) and Amanda was wonderful with them. Letting them steer the boat and climb around in the cabin. We had a great time and highly recommend. Thanks Amanda!! :)
We had a blast sailing with Captain Amanda and First Mate Beth. The whole experience was magical. Amanda was very responsive prior to the trip. Upon arrival she made us feel welcomed on the boat. There was an informative quick safety review, and then we were off! Her boat Rosie is stunning, clean and fit us comfortably. I would highly recommend sailing with Amanda. We can’t wait to go again soon!!!
