2021 Crew Hiring Information


2021 Hiring.

This year will look different from previous years due to the ongoing pandemic. At this time, our positions will not be seasonal live-aboard positions, they will be commuter crew positions. That means we will not have housing for folks. We will be hiring crew on a program to program basis. We are working hard to create and fill Covid- responsible programs for this year. We will be offering small group day programs, virtual programs, small group dockside programs as well as the possibility of small group overnight programs in the summer. We are anticipating that the sailing season will run from May- October. We will be updating the Crew Job Descriptions below and will post those soon. For now you can reference the old job descriptions to get a general idea of duties and requirements.

If you have any questions, please contact Amy at amy@soundexp.org


Descriptions of Crew Positions

The crew positions aboard Adventuress are not your typical 9-5 job. They are educational, challenging, fun, out in the elements; they require a level of situational awareness, and are very rewarding. If that sparks your interest , we look forward to hearing from you! No two days are alike, however you can get a sense of what a "typical" day might be like by reading "A day in the life of an Adventuress Crew Member" below the job descriptions. It was written by our 2018 Chief Mate SamSam.


Please note that all positions are commuter crew positions and that crew are hired on a trip per trip basis. The job descriptions listed below have not been updated to reflect that schedule or pay. Pay rates are as follows: Program Coordinator $18/hr, Engineer $18/hr, Educator/Deckhand $16/hr

    "I love being part of the Adventuress crew, because it's more than just crew. It's family. It's rare to find a community like this, where each person's voice is valued and everyone is constantly learning from one another."
