ABOUT ORCAS SAILING
We began with a simple idea which continues to be our guide to business today: Provide a fun sailing opportunity for visitors vacationing in the San Juan Islands.
Because we don't charge per person you will experience learning how to sail in the company of your traveling companions rather than with a group of strangers. This way you get a private charter for you and yours only! Every skippered charter is hands-on. You will be sailing the boat and learning the ropes!
Where we are
We are located at 1945 Obstruction Pass Rd, Olga, WA 98279
From Eastsound, drive south through Moran State Park. At the Artworks building in Olga turn left onto Point Lawrence Rd. Two intersections later veer right onto Obstruction Pass Rd. At the end of this road is the county boat ramp and parking lot. My office shack is adjacent to the boat ramp just inside the property of Lieber Haven Resort. Please call ahead as I am not often there.
From Doe Bay, turn left onto Obstruction Pass Rd then follow the directions above.
NOTE: We are located at Lieber Haven Resort, in Obstruction Pass, at the end of the Obstruction Pass Rd. We are not at Obstruction Pass State Park which is at the end of Trails Rd.

"My husband arranged this sailing lesson for our recent visit to Orcas Island. This was the highlight of my trip. My husband has been sailing for a few years and I am brand new to the sport. Nat was awesome. He was so patient with my lack of knowledge and/or recall of the limited knowledge I have. The bay was quite choppy when we headed out but I immediately felt very confident with Nat at the helm. Nat is very personable and is a great teacher. I highly recommend Orcas Island sailing.'"
