Sean moved out west a decade ago searching for deep pow and big fish, and boy did he score. Not only did he discover Mount Baker and Orcas Island. He achieved his captains license, caught a beautiful bride and a new home.
Sara is your tour specialist extraordinaire. She is the voice you hear on the other end of the phone (most of the time). Sara grew up on Orcas Island, and could talk your ear off about where to stay and where to go, so don't be afraid to ask. She will also help you plan a private charter specific to what you need. Other than that she enjoys coffee on the porch, dancing and scrolling through social media (actually that is her other job, social media and digital marketing). You can read more about Sara below.
