The Pinky Schooner Pleiades, owned and operated by Capt. Hoyle E. Hodges, is a replica of an 1830s Eastport “Pinky” schooner built to Howard Chappelle’s “Glad Tidings” design.

The Olympia Schooner Company was established in 2011 as part of a year long Evergreen State College project to deliver cargo under sail power in South Puget Sound. Upon conclusion of the Sail Cargo project in 2013 the company began conducting 1 and 2 hour sails out of Alderbrook Resort & Spa up to 5 times a day, 7 days a week. They have over 6 years of active charter experience, and thousands of passengers with zero accidents or mishaps. Pleiades carries full charter insurance, has a current survey (2017) and is always kept in excellent structural and mechanical condition. Pleiades carries a full complement of USCG required safety equipment and crew members are fully trained in all aspects of charter operations. Pleiades Captains are all USCG licensed.
