Do you just want to get on the water and see the Puget Sound/San Juans or do you want hand on instruction.* The range is from the Washington/Canadian ferry system to smaller local charter/cruises.* Are you going to have a car, where are you planning on stay, as a lot depends on your mobility/time and what you want to see/spend/accomplish.* Most hotels in Washington/Canada have a brochure rack with local things to see and do.* There are whale watching, sight seeing and dinner charters in most city/towns.
Over Memorial week end was had a couple stay with us from Florida that are Long haul truckers and had a lay offer.* The Eagle was not ready to leave the dock and still not as its been so rainy cold here, but we did spend a day getting though the Eagle, taking the run about out into the sound, Jetty Island and the river, and out to dinner.* There is a lot more to owning, operating and living on a boat than most people realize.* After their visit they decided to start reading books, take required boating courses, buy a smaller day/start boat, 20 to 30 ft, and live on the dirt until they had the experience to move up to a live aboard boat, 40 to 60 ft.* 30 years ago we start with the 19 ft run about, then a 28 ft and even then buying and insurance the 58 ft was questionable.* Darn, I did not really want to buy the Eagle but my wife and the water gawds made me!
