Guemes Island Historical Society:

Historical Society: Adventure To Vendovi

September 7, 2019
The Guemes Island Historical Society, in conjunction with Rising Tide Charters, is pleased to announce a fund-raising adventure to Vendovi Island. Vendovi has rich history, beautiful scenery and great walking trails which allow for island exploration. On the ride out, you'll hear a brief account of Vendovi history and what you might experience on your visit. On the return trip to Guemes you'll hear some of the history of Eliza Island, Vendovi's neighbor to the north.

Save the date: September 7th, leaving from Young Park on the north tip of Guemes beginning at 11 am. Your boat, the Voyager, is a 34’ landing craft and carries 6 passengers at a time. The Voyager is scheduled to depart Young Park each half hour until 2:30pm. Departures from Vendovi back to Guemes will be every half hour as each new group arrives. Plan on spending 1/2 to 2 hours exploring the island. The last trip back to Guemes will leave Vendovi at 3:45pm.

Cost: A donation of $90 per person. It includes the boat ride to and from Vendovi, and a catered picnic lunch from Gere-deli of Anacortes: sandwich, salad, chips, drink and a treat.

Payment: Cash or cheque (payable to Guemes Island Historical Society) at the event—before sailing.
