The most attractive element of this "Whales, Trails, & Ales" cruise may turn out to be the "Ales."  Hosted by Northwest beer experts, Kendall Jones and Kim Sharpe Jones, this trip highlights the best beers of the region.  Onboard, passengers will enjoy a special selection of Washington nautical-themed beers.  Beers from Silver City Brewery & Oak Harbor's Flyers Brewing will be paired with clams, oysters, and other delicious dishes during dinners.  Kendall and Kim will be hosting brewery tours during shore excursions, as well as presentations on beer styles.  All the while, take in the picturesque surroundings, explore the temperate rainforests, and keep an eye peeled for a breaching whale.
This "Whales, Trails, & Ales" itinerary departs from Seattle on May 3, 2014.  You can see all of the trip details here.  Don't miss this opportunity to sip your way through the Northwest!
