Sample Learn-n-Cruise Itinerary

Where you go on your Learn-n-Cruise will depend somewhat on weather, winds, current, and your personal preferences as students. This is a sample of the typical cruise plan of a Learn-n-Cruise.

Day 1 - Sucia Island. A brisk sail across Bellingham Bay to Lummi Island, up scenic Hale Passage, to the most popular of the marine parks.

Day 2 - Stuart Island. Cruise through Dahl's Porpoise territory southwest along Orcas Island to Prevost or Reid Harbors. Both are part of a state park. There is a very nice walk (about an hour each way) from both anchorages to Lover's Leap and the Turn Point Lighthouse.

Day 3 - Roche Harbor. Visit this historic (circa 1880s) resort and marina on San Juan Island to do some docking practice and wander the gardens while enjoying an ice cream cone.

Day 4 - Friday Harbor. Sail around San Juan Island to Friday Harbor, the largest village in the San Juan Islands. Explore this bustling town and enjoy dinner out.

Day 5 – Rosario Resort. Cruise past Shaw and into the center of the islands to this stately resort in East Sound (Orcas Island). Tour the historic mansion, enjoy a swim or hot tub, or hike up to Cascade Lake in Moran State Park.

Day 6 - Inati Bay. Sail east through Obstruction Pass, drop anchor here on Lummi Island.

Day 7 - Bellingham. A morning sail across Bellingham Bay completes your circuit, though truthfully you have tasted but a tiny sample of the delights of the San Juans.
