Explore Puget Sound

With a sheltered location, Puget Sound is the perfect place to explore by sailboat for those who don’t quite have their sea legs yet. The waters are often calm and the scenery is breathtaking. Perfect for a family friendly adventure or to get away from the noise of the city with friends or loved ones.


Sailing on Lake Washington

A smaller body of water on the inland side of Seattle, Lake Washington is perfect for learning to sail. Choose your ideal Seattle boat rental and choose whichever works best for you. 

Whatever your plans, you’ll find lots of things to do and plenty of options for boat rental with Sailo. So, what are the best things to do when sailing in Seattle?

Blake Island Reserve


This marine reserve is just a short hop from the city and makes a great experience when sailing from Seattle. As it’s only accessible by boat, Blake Island is a tranquil location to enjoy a whole smorgasbord of activities from walking, cycling or kayaking to bird spotting, scuba diving and fishing. There is plenty of mooring and if you want to enjoy an overnight trip, there is also a campsite. Be warned, there is no electricity here, so enjoy that off grid feeling with your Sailo boat rental!

Sail to Point No Point Lighthouse


The oldest lighthouse in Puget Sound makes a great waypoint for a day trip sailing in Seattle. Sail your yacht charter north from Seattle itself and the lighthouse marks the beginning of the wilderness and more rural parts of Washington State. The area is also dotted with beaches and quaint villages which make a great place to step ashore and enjoy your day out. If you want to moor up, sail your boat rental to Coon Bay (also known as Sheltered Bay) or find a spot to anchor in Mutiny Bay across the water.
