Cosima Franchini and her brother Ocean, longtime Olympia residents, own and operate the 42-foot traditional schooner built from the ground up by their father back in the ‘70s. Growing up on the water has given Cosima and Ocean their unique knowledge and love of sailing, which they love sharing with their guests during their May through October sailing season.
The private day trips are just that – private. When you book the Pterodactyl, you and up to five of your luckiest family and friends are the rulers of the sea, with the help of Lead Captain Ocean and deckhand Mena, who lays out a mean charcuterie spread and solid cocktails. Take your pick from a two-hour, three-hour, or all-day (six-hour) cruise and either sit back and relax or help the crew hoist sails and assist in maneuvers.
