    A wonderful sunset cruise with Captain Nick, and crew Mike and Claire sailing on Lavengro!  We meandered up and down Lake Union.  The crew was very friendly and knowledgable about the Seattle area and sailing.  It was a beautiful summer night  to be out on the water.  I would recommend this company and to Mike- GO Packers...( we joked briefly about the upcoming game)

    Planned a work party on the Lavengro, easy booking process, Captain Nick & crew were great & let a few people get some hands-on sailing time. Great experience all around. Hope to come aboard again!

    If you're looking to learn how to sail, or just want to get out on the water for a day and enjoy some sailing on Lake Union, I can't recommend Geoff and his awesome crew of captains enough. I'm currently on the 'intro to sailing' learning track, which I'm really enjoying. You learn everything from the basics, like how to rig the boat and get yourself out of the dock, to more advanced maneuvers like 'man overboard' and tricky wind scenarios. The instructors/captains are great at breaking down basic sailing concepts, and are just all-around solid teachers. They keep progress of all the topics you've covered through a mobile app, so you can track the improvements in your progress over time on certain skills. For example, if you've really mastered your knots and tacking upwind, but still need to work on your downwind jibes, then they'll focus on that more for the next lesson. Overall, a great place to learn how to sail and get the basics (and some more advanced stuff) under your belt.Lessons and teaching aside, these guys also run some awesome lake charters (it's in the name, after all!) If you're looking to have a get together with friends, or want to organize an event for work, this is a great experience to get everyone out on the water. If you get a chance, you should definitely head out for a sunset (or anytime) cruise on the Lavengro. She's a beautiful, wooden gaff-rigged schooner - makes you feel like you were sailing back in the good ol' days!Whether it's sailing lessons or just wanting to get you/your family/friends out on the water, I'd strongly recommend this company!

    Our work team went out for an event on the Mallory Todd. It is a lovely sail boat (sail wasn't out because it needs to be fixed) with a pleasant crew. Ian was our captain and Eric and Patricia were our crew. They were very chill and offered knowledge about the area and the boat. We brought snacks, drinks, and music, and enjoyed cruising around the Lake Union waterways. The whole group really enjoyed our time on the water together.

    What a blast. Easy to book, on time schedule. Captain Ron was fun and knew a lot about the lake and history. Great time.

    The crew aboard was delightful and ensured a fantastic time on one of my first charters ever. It started off with a gracious warm welcome and made me feel right at home, chasing away any anxiety I had about being on the water (*cough* I'm not the greatest swimmer *cough*). They answered every question I had (even some of the painfully simple ones) and even got me involved during the sail. Aside from being out on the water in the sun and the breeze, I learned a ton. I got to tie knots, hoist sails and even took the helm which was awesome! Got to see Seattle from a completely different angle and even got a history lesson!

    Booked a private sunset sail for a Saturday.  Susan and Zack were very friendly, easy going, and more than willing to show us the sailing basics.  They were also professional and gave us space to enjoy the occasion while keeping us topped off and well-equipped with blankets, seating pads and hand warmers.  They really helped make it an evening to remember, and I'd highly recommend Lake Union Charters.

    We had a fantastic sailing experience with Lake Union Charters. My in-laws were in town and we wanted to show them the city in a fun way, especially on such a beautiful (90F degree+) day! Lake Union Charters definitely delivered. We arrived at the dock and the boat was ready to go and the smiling captain, Patrick, helped us on board and was incredibly friendly, engaging and in-control of our experience. He zipped us around Lake Union and over to Lake Washington, pointing out different Seattle landmarks and teaching us about the sailboat (even letting us help here and there). We left with great tans, smiles on our faces and a memory for a lifetime.

    Fantastic! That is the only way I could describe sailing with captain Geoff. I thought this would be a good "Seattle experience" for my friends from Alaska....
