From the happy moment you board HOBBES, to the sad time you have to step off her, you will be immersed in the Sailing life! Frank and his mate Karen are anxious for you to feel at home onboard HOBBES. You may participate, or not, as you are comfortable. Relax and enjoy the cruise, or help with sailing; Your choice. We both will provide step by step instructions for you so that you will become comfortable on the water. As HOBBES is a very large boat, for first time sailors, it can be a bit intimidating. We will provide overall instruction about the art of sailing, show you how to handle lines to rig the sails, show you how to steer appropriately according to the wind, and guide you in handling the sail sheets to properly adjust them. We will adjust our instruction to your experience level. Depending on the tides on that particular day, we may head several different ways out of the harbor. Each direction has its own challenges for sailing from varied wind to rushing currents. Frank & Karen will guide you constantly with detailed instruction so you can make it look easy to sail the 16 ton craft according to your whims. After 3 hours of honing your skills at tacking, beating, reaching, and other points of sail, we will re-enter Gig Harbor. You can even help moor Hobbes when we glide into the dock after your cruise! Don't miss your chance to cruise HOBBES!

Dove ti troverai
If you have time to see the sights while sailing, there are a number of views only accessible from the water. Waterfront homes on stilts enjoy a 200 foot stairway for access. The Narrows is home of some of the best fishing in the northwest due to the deep water and rushing currents. Point Defiance Park provides a sanctuary for wildlife including Bald Eagles. Seals, Whales, and even Orcas may visit close aboard during your sail...you never know.
