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.

Program intended for grandchildren from 10 - 18 years of age.

Live aboard the schooner Adventuress — constructed in 1913 as a private yacht and converted into a teaching ship — as you take the helm, trim the sail and absorb the history and traditions of tall ships. Sail through the San Juan Islands by day and anchor at a different harbor each evening.


Highlights

• Explore marine environments through tidal pools, plankton trawls, and shore walks.
• A crew of naturalists, musicians and tall ship sailors leads you through an authentic maritime experience.
• The program’s emphasis is on teamwork, community and connection to Puget Sound — beginner sailors welcome!

Coast Guard-inspected, historic, 101-foot landmark schooner; dorm-style upper and lower tiered bunks; no cabins, limited private space. Bring sleeping bag. Toilets and sinks on board.
