Throughout the year, there are a range of exciting opportunities to explore our area on the Suva.
Transit to Port Townsend
Experience a hassle-free and comfortable transit to Port Townsend aboard the historic Schooner Suva! Enjoy a leisurely sail and take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding waters.
With Suva's rich history and stunning design, you'll feel like you've been transported back in time.
So sit back, relax, and let us take care of your transport needs while you enjoy a unique and unforgettable experience on Whidbey Island and the Schooner Suva.
There is no more beautiful or romantic way to experience a sunset than aboard our evening sail. We’ll raise the sails, turn off the engine, and sail across the water of beautiful Penn Cove while the sky changes colors and the sun sets over the water.
See the fading colorful sun light sparkle on the water and the twinkling lights of the town of Coupeville while you relax in the natural beauty of the area. Share a bottle of wine with friends or bring aboard a meal of tasty treats from one of our partner’s restaurants in Coupeville.
Wooden Boat Festival
Every year Schooner Suva travels to Port Townsend for the largest wooden boat festival in North America, a place where kids and adults alike experience, the beauty of wooden boats, and the richness of the PNW maritime culture.
Come on down to Point Hudson and experience it all yourself: the boats, the craft, the community, the celebration. Whether you're interested in the craft, the community, or just soaking up the atmosphere, there's something for everyone at the Wooden Boat Festival.
As part of its mission to educate about our maritime heritage, Whidbey Island Maritime Heritage Foundation works with school districts to provide on-the-water experiences for their student field trips. All education programs are designed to meet the requested objectives of the schools and the ages of the students. Previous sail programs have included opportunities for students to actually participate in raising the sails and piloting. The crew, aided by school teachers and volunteers, provide additional lessons addressing local maritime heritage and history, sailing skills such as navigation and knot-tying, and hands-on experiences investigating the local aquatic ecology.
