We foster environmental sustainability, youth development, and maritime careers through powerful shipboard programs aboard the schooner Adventuress on the waters of the Salish Sea. Adventuress is a century-old National Historic Landmark tall ship. Sound Experience is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) based in Washington State, USA.

Join our Winter Work Weekends!

The ship may be tucked away in her winter berth, but you can still get onboard! Once per month, we invite you to join us for a volunteer Winter Work Weekend! Complete maintenance projects alongside the winter crew and other community volunteers—sanding, painting, varnishing, organizing, engineering, cooking, woodworking, engineering…we guarantee we have a project for you! Delicious food, bunks (if needed), safety gear, and training provided. Contact katie@soundexp.org for more information.

Bring your school or youth group aboard

Adventuress offers the experience of "ship as teacher"—a way to enhance school curriculum in a truly unique and hands-on setting.
We are scheduling now for the 2018 sailing season. For more information click on the button below or contact Education Director Amy Kovacs at. amy@soundexp.org

“Kids learn through experience. Some of the most vivid and meaningful learning happens outside of the classroom… There aren’t many places on Earth that have a resource as powerful as Adventuress. I am truly grateful that my students can have this opportunity.”

Ron W., 5th grade teacher at Discovery Elementary

“It’s a very unique opportunity for young people to get away from an urban environment and really live with a group of people working on the water. Partly it has to do with the historic nature of the ship and partly it has to do with a deep love for Puget Sound. Who wouldn’t want that for their kids?”

Marianne W., mother of a participant on Girls at the Helm
