The summer has been crazy gorgeous this year, and I’ve been finding different ways to go out and enjoy the sun. It’s pretty easy to find things to do around Seattle, and one of my favorite parts about living here is all the water we live around. I came across an Instagram account for a company on the Waterfront called We Sail Seattle, and booked an hour and a half sailing excursion. I had an incredible time! I even attempted to catch everything on my new GoPro, which I had never used before. I still have a lot to learn about filmmaking.
There were about 35 people on board the sailing yacht on Saturday, including myself. As someone who suffers from chronic back issues, I should have been in line to board first to get a more comfortable spot on the boat. I ended up at the very front, which had its perks, but also its downsides. I had an amazing view of everything, but I was sitting cross-legged on a hard surface with no back support. I’m not complaining, by any means, but simply pointing this out to anyone who may also have issues.
The weather was beyond perfect! Beautiful, blue skies, and tons of sunshine. It does get a chilly on the water, so take a jacket, no matter what time of year you go.
I can’t say enough nice things about We Sail Seattle. The crew and staff were very friendly, and I will gladly go on other excursions. Visit their website at www.sailingseattle.com for their most current prices, schedules, and excursions. I paid $36 for an hour and a half. There’s also a 2 hour sunset sailing for a bit more, which I will definitely try out before the summer is over.
