Trawler Training Adventures Aboard the Ursa Major

ice12Happy New Year everyone!  For the past 17 charter seasons aboard the Ursa Major, we had have a wide variety of trawler and boating enthusiasts join us for our annual “Trawler Training Trips” through the Inside Passage between Seattle, Washington, and Alaska.  Over a period of 14 days, we transit through beautiful British Columbia at a speed of approximately 7.5 knots, and teach interested participants how to safety navigate the famous Inside Passage with its astounding tides and breathtaking scenery.

And since we began our “Trawler Training Trips“, a number of our guests have gone on to pursue their own cruising dreams by purchasing their own boat.  Recently, Josh and I sat down to compile a complete list of these adventurers from the past seventeen years.  Here are three of our current favorite adventures in progress:

1. Karen & Barry Hutchinson, M/V Chug: 42′ Kady Krogen trawler; Coupeville, Washington; currently planning their 3rd trip to Alaska aboard M/V Chug in 2017
