Welcome aboard one of the Northwests official Tall-Ships schooners the Kia Ora. Very few people in the world have had the opportunity to sail on a classic Herreshoff designed schooner. This is truly a unique life experience!
The Kia is currently chartering in Port Ludlow Washington for group events, day-sailing excursions and sail training.
Capt. Jake and his 1st mate Nancy, are focused upon providing you with a high-quality hands-on adventure and customer satisfaction.
Join our adventure by actually sailing the ship. Learn the basics of sailing and take a turn at the helm or sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
Come play aboard ship as we skim the the thin blue line that separates heaven from sea. Join the porpoises and whales, eagles and sea lions and otters. Step back to a time when stars and spars filled the skies overhead. Discover a way of life, which few have ever experienced.
Bring your sense of adventure, a jacket, beach shoes and a smile, and off we'll go to sea to create another story.
Come sail the Straits of Jaun de Fuca, the Salish Sea, Hood's Canal, the Orcas Islands, the Gulf Island archipelago, Discovery Bay, and the upper cruising regions and remote beaches of the Puget's Sound.
