Our New Name!

The foundation that owns and operates our classic schooner SUVA has undergone a name change…we are now known as the Whidbey Island Maritime Heritage Foundation, to emphasize that our scope is larger than just Coupeville. Suva will remain in Coupeville for most of the summer, but we will be looking for opportunities to visit and sail from other areas of the island, such as the port of South Whidbey in Langley. We would like to thank all of our supporters and members for their kindness and energy in ensuring Suva is ready for another 100 years in the Puget Sound.

Thank You!

A sample of the auction items this year!

The WIMHF wishes to thank everyone who made our recent fundraiser, Mariners & Mermaids, a rousing success! From our volunteers to our donors, everyone involved made it a memorable event. With over 100 guests, and 97 Auction items, we earned over $9000 toward achieving our goal of supporting programs that express our maritime heritage. Here is a list of those who donated items to auction. Visit their businesses…and give them a mighty thank you!
