See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Sail along the waters of Puget Sound onboard the 101-foot schooner “Adventuress.” A teaching vessel, it was constructed for use as an Arctic exploration vessel. Become part of the crew — take the helm, raise and trim its sails, navigate the San Juan Islands by day and anchor in harbor by night. The crew — naturalists, musicians, storytellers — leads an authentic maritime experience.


Highlights

• Explore marine environments through tidal pools, birding and shore walks.
• Spend evening time stargazing or marveling at bio-luminescent plankton.
• Join crew members for lessons on environmental conservation, marine ecology and nautical skills.

Program Notes

Program starts and ends in Anacortes, Wash.

Activity Notes

Participants raise sails and keep vessel shipshape. Must be able to climb eight steps up and down a ladder, be able to climb into bunks, and maneuver in small spaces.

Coordinated by Sound Experience.
