  • Deception Pass Tours
    The tenure of US Coast Guard–certified Captain Brett as captain of the Island Whaler began as a dream. In the course of nine months, he had a recurring dream about an unusual flatbed boat, which replaced his normal dreams about beating up Napoleon with Horatio Hornblower. More than a year after the visions stopped, Brett discovered his fantasy boat sitting in a parking lot in Anacortes. He now owns that boat and pilots the open-topped Island Whaler through picturesque waters to view the multitudinous wildlife found in and around Deception Pass. The open deck and low-slung cabin of the seafaring sloop grants easy, panoramic views of the steep, rocky landscape. Captain Brett chimes in against the breeze with educational details about the pass's historical significance, structures, and ecology. Throughout the tours, spritely fauna with unevolved senses of stage fright perform lively, natural ballets as visitors potentially lock eyes with bald eagles, seals, porpoises, gray whales, and Pacific Northwest giant squid.

  • Jelly Marketing
    At first blush, Langley Wine Tours seems like a simple tourism booster, drawing attention to the lush vineyards that dot the region's rolling hills. That description is true, of course; the tour grants oenophiles access, tours, and tastings at seven destinations, including Back Yard Vineyards, and Krause Berry Farms & Estate Winery. However, that's not where Langley Wine Tours magnanimity ends. Instead of keeping its well-earned money, the company donates 100% of its profits to the Langley Animal Protection Society. The company also gives back to its best customers; travelers can enter to win a variety of prizes by collecting tickets at each of their destinations, with gifts ranging from hotel stays and helicopter rides to cases of wine and singing telegrams delivered by the town crier.

  • Bellewood Distilling
    As a "farm to glass" distillery, BelleWood Distilling transports the taste of its orchard's apples into refreshing spirits, such as its signature honeycrisp vodka. And even when the fruits don't come from their farm, the staff still looks to local suppliers for help in filling their handmade stills. Visitors can tour their distillery to learn about the process of growing, fermenting, and distilling before they dine in the bistro, which offers scenic views of Mount Baker.

  • West Coast Wine Education
    What's proper etiquette for the queen's sommelier? West Coast Wine Education's John Gerum confronted this question head on when he served Queen Elizabeth II. Apparently he made the right choice, as he went on to pour wine for prime ministers, presidents, provincial premiers, and cultural icons during his 20-year career. Gerum's achievement distills three generations of fine-dining experience that was passed down from his father, a chef, and his grandfather, a maitre d'. Wine education was always his passion, so when starting out, he sought personal instruction from the master sommelier Andrew Laliberté and demonstrated a palate refined enough to earn him membership and certification from the International Sommelier Guild. Gerum often merges his know-how with other wine educators to cultivate a roster of classes and hone their delivery. These experts join in delineating scotch terroir and describing the bouquet of a student's favourite pinot-stained shirt with an easy professionalism that has enthralled groups of up to 300 people. They share their expertise with casual drinkers and professionals during two-hour workshops, in consultation for store openings and events, and through appearances on Global TV.
