Sample Cruise Descriptions for the Schooner Mycia:

SailMycia.com San Juan Islands: The San Juan Islands are the jewel of the Salish Sea. Our route is determined by favorable winds and weather. We will accommodate your interests including hiking on the islands, and visiting cities and harbors suited to your preferences, or looking for wildlife and relaxing. As always, sailing participation is encouraged, but optional.

Inside Passage: The Mycia's transit to Alaska is an adventure of a lifetime. Cruising through the Great Bear Rainforest, expect to see abundant wildlife, soak in isolated hot springs, and enjoy remote native culture. Seasonal coastal cuisine favorites decorate each meal. A hike to a mile-long white sand beach on the fringe of the Canadian coast shouldn't be missed.

Surfing in Southeast Alaska: Too cold for you maybe!? Not with our on-deck hot tub. Rent all the gear you need at Sitka's local surf retailer, or bring your own. Enjoy a delicious meal as we head toward the Pacific coastline of Mount Edgecombe, a dormant volcano off Baranof Island. The Mycia anchors out while you're skiffed to surf breaks only the locals know about.

Sitka to Juneau: After watching whales in Frederic Sound, we're off to view Alaska's unique tidewater glaciers through neck-achingly steep fjords. This experience won't last forever and should not be missed by any generation of traveler. The Tongass National Forest gives this region its lush terrain and cascading falls. Our sailing adventure starts in Sitka, the historic Russian-American capital of the state, and ends in the busy commercial district of Juneau, today's capital city.
