“For a special evening cruise dinner looking out over the San Juan Archipelago, and waters, complete with curious harbor seals and possibly and Eagle or two (we spotted a big fella relaxing at sunset along the coast), the San Juan Cruise, Crab and Chuckanut Bay Cruise is relaxed, friendly, and serves up a fresh and very satisfying meal (well prepared Dungeness Crab, BBQ Chicken, fresh broccoli burst salad, roasted red potatoes and a light and tasty tiramisu cake.) Staff works hard to be helpful and informative and just plain friendly, not forced or overdone. Bring camera, sweater, binoculars or just kick back and enjoy the view.”


“Dinner was awesome with an abundance of crab. Wine was reasonably priced. The weather was perfect. The scenery and sunset, from a different perspective was beautiful, as were the city lights as we cruised back to shore. We would highly recommend the cruise and are already talking about doing it again next summer, but when the days are longer.”


“We had the cracked crab buffet. it was excellent. came with bread, potatoes, and broccoli salad. There was also chicken for those that don’t like or can’t eat crab. We had a perfect day – sunny and warm!!! No wind. The crew is very friendly and helpful and very attentive. Would highly recommend this – very relaxing and fun.”


“We enjoyed the staff — they were informative, cheerful, friendly and efficient. I enjoyed the food — the crab was just right! The salad and potatoes were great. I really didn’t need the dessert which was superb but I did have some — my husband got a double with a song for his birthday. It actually was his birthday cruise! We were informed about the islands we were cruising by and I love the little island called Eliza. I felt the cruise was really interesting and delicious!”


“What a wonderful experience. Food was delicious, service first rate, clean, and everything ran on time. Highly recommend for everyone.”
