Ben first fell in love with sailing as a boy, visiting the Atlantic Coast of Florida, where his grandfather had 19ft daysailer. Years later, following a summer spent as crew on a competitive and successful racing yacht on Lake Michigan, the deal was sealed. He was hooked and has spent a good part of his adult life trying to find his way onto boats.

As owner/captain of Sail Bainbridge and the beautiful classic sailing yacht, TRUE, there is little he loves more than being on the water and sharing the experience with others.

Ben’s has nearly 5,000 miles offshore sailing experience including passages from San Diego to Seattle, Sweden to Scotland, Key West to Bermuda and Annapolis to the BVI. He is a United States Coast Guard Licensed Captain (OUPV).

He's also a dad & professional musician.

Where you'll be

We'll sail out of Eagle Harbor, Bainbridge Island - with views of Seattle, Blakely Rock, surrounding islands, mountains and volcanos. We'll also sail past the maintenance yard for the Washington State Ferries, historical vessels and even a Superfund site. Our sailing grounds are truly some of the best in the world. We never tire of these magnificent surroundings.

This is truly the best way to experience the natural glory of Washington. Everything from start to finish is easy, relaxing, and special. Ben is clearly an expert at sailing, which is seen through his knowledge and passion. By the end of the trip you feel like you saw an old friend and enjoyed the best of Seattle's magnificent views.

We had a fantastic sail with Ben aboard the beautiful TRUE! We loved sailing out past the island and saw Mt. Rainier, the Seattle Waterfront, etc. Honestly just being on the boat and out in the water itself is so magical. We loved the beanbags at the front to lounge out and taking in all the sights. Ben was very kind, accommodating, and we had great conversations. We loved our trip and we hope to be back again soon! :)

This was an incredible opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the PNW and feel pampered. We did a private trip and were amazed with the experience of having this beautiful, classic boat all to ourselves. What a special treat. Capt Ben was knowledgeable and entertaining - and even part of the Seattle music scene which was a real bonus. What a fun guy! It truly was magical moving along with just the sound of the water lapping on the hull and the harbor seals playing around us. Thank you Sail Bainbridge!

This is the best thing I could have done with my visit to Bainbridge. Being from New Zealand I am used to being around boats and sailing, but this still stood out as one of the best times I have spent out on the water. We sailed on a truly majestic boat. The captain is a pro, so relaxed at the wheel, so experienced and really geared to providing his passengers with a truly comfortable experience. The scenery was stunning, we were blessed with beautiful clear weather and there’s the added excitement of seeing plenty of wildlife too. Hoping to see whales next time!

Such a great outing! It was super fun to see the famous Washington ferries up close and the Seattle skyline in the distance. Mount Rainier was out, too! Ben had great stories about the rich history of Bainbridge Island and its harbors and was great with our kids. An all around wonderful time on the water. We will be back to sail with Sail Bainbridge again!
