Mariners & Mermaids Gala Auction & Dance

February 15, 2020 @ 1:00 am - 4:00 am



How to Have the Greatest Valentine’s Day Ever

COUPEVILLE, Jan. 17, 2020 – All those drawn to the sea will gather on Friday, February 14, 2020 at the Mariners & Mermaids Gala Auction and Dance to celebrate with those they love as well as honor the work of the Coupeville Maritime Heritage Foundation and raise funds for the preservation of the historic Schooner SUVA. 

The Wind and Rain Band will provide the evening’s music while guests, dressed as relaxed mariners or sparkling mermaids, enjoy sweet Valentine treats and bid on an array of silent auction items ranging from a beautiful hand-crafted model sailboat to gift certificates from Whidbey Island’s favorite restaurants and beauty spas.

All bids will support the Coupeville Maritime Heritage Foundation and its living symbol, the Schooner Suva, a classic 68’ schooner built 95 years ago for island resident Frank Pratt, who knew first-hand how unique Whidbey Island and its people are. Today trained crews and captains sail the Schooner Suva during the summer season, sharing with onboard guests from Seattle and beyond the history and beauty that defines our spectacular island home.

Event tickets can be purchased online at or at the door.
