Captain Robin was host and expert story-teller on a wonderful family outing to the lovely islands near Orcas Island. On-board his elegant yacht he prepared great food and snacks for the kids and freshly grilled seafood for the adults. All 3 generations couldn't be happier. Best boating trip ever!

This was definitely the highlight of our trip! We were lucky enough to be able to reserve a sunset dinner cruise with Robin and Judy, and had an amazing time on their boat! They are terrific hosts, full of information and history about the islands, yet were smart about letting us have time to ourselves as well. The cost was... More

We did not go on the dinner cruise but Capt. Robin took us on a charter to Matia, Sucia and Patos Islands. It was a great day to be on the water and Capt. Robin made all of us feel welcome on board the Capricorn. He knows the islands and the area. Couldn't have been a better day!

From our first contact with Captain Robin and Judy we felt so welcomed as if we had known them forever. They were so kind to pick us up since we were without transportation and not familiar with the island. Within moments we felt at home and even more once we boarded their lovely Yacht. Care had been taken to have... More

We went out with Captain Robin and his wife for a sunset cruise. The islands, wild life and water was magnificent. Aside from that, it was an uncomfortable experience. We hadn't been informed that it was BYOB. Actually, it was bring your own beverage of any kind. When we finally asked for water, we were met with awkward silence. The... More

Our trip to the San Juans was too early for whale watching, but we really wanted to get out on the water. Captain Robin took us for a daytime cruise to Sucia Island, and we had a wonderful time. I was able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the views. We saw seals, beautiful birds, and lots of amazing rock... More

What can I say that hasn't already been said in the other reviews? Robin & Judy were wonderful hosts, their boat is very comfortable, the dinner was delicious, and the trip around the Sucia Islands was very enjoyable. Even though we went in mid-September it was still mild enough that a windbreaker was all we needed. If you're looking for... More
