She will give informal and relaxed lessons on wine tasting and paring. Christine Smith, the David B's Chef says that, "Dawn's easy going style and love of wine and food will make this one of the best cruises of the season." Guests will also visit a winery in the San Juan Islands wineries to try out their new-found skills. Each night the David B will anchor in a different cove or bay where guests will also have time for hiking, kayaking, and relaxing. All meals are included and will be paired with wines that Dawn has chosen. The price for this cruise is $995 per person.

Northwest Navigation Co., operates the Motor Vessel David B, and provides specialty cruises in the Inside Passage and Southeast Alaska for small groups and couples. The Motor Vessel David B is a beautifully restored 65-foot wooden workboat that has been converted to carry up to six passengers at a time. Besides maintaining the David B's classic looks, Captain Jeffrey and Christine Smith also meticulously care for the boat's antique engine, a last-of-its-kind 3-cylinder Washington-Estep. Accommodations include 4 staterooms, three of which have queen-sized beds and one that has two extra-long twin bunks. Each cabin has it's own private head (toilet) and sink. In addition there is a shared bathroom with a full-sized cast iron bathtub/shower. The David B is the perfect alternative to the mainstream cruise ships for anyone searching for a specialized cruise that is out of the ordinary and on an uncommon boat.
