Includes three-hours of sailing on Bellingham Bay and full dinner. Drinks are available for additional charge.
Combine your tastes for adventure and delicious food on a three-hour dinner sail on Bellingham Bay. Work up your appetite as you assist the crew in the raising of the largest mainsail on the west coast of the United States. After the sails are up, sit back and enjoy views of the beautiful coastline and enjoy an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage from the ship’s bar as you glide across the bay. Our professional chef will ring the galley bell and a northwest meal of locally caught salmon accompanied by a rotating mix of seasonal salads and side dishes will be served buffet style.
We’ll examine Bellingham’s changing attitudes about “having a good time in the old town” from the rise and fall of the town’s red-light-district and saloon culture through the prohibition era when it all went “underground” (shh… speak-easy!)
The tour lasts about an hour and is under one mile.

Join Dennis as he forecasts Rahu’s cycle and America’s date with destiny
“To everything there is a season, and time to every purpose under the heavens,” from Ecclesiastes is the tune for these times as America has entered into a new season of time; the cycle of Rahu. Rahu is the planet of storm and rebellion in Vedic astrology. It will come as no surprise that the United States was born on July 4, 1776 in the planetary cycle of Rahu!
If we wish to forecast the fruit of a particular season, we need to look back on the historical record of that past season, for as Mark Twain mused, “History never repeats itself, but often it rhymes.”
