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.

Paid Shipboard Positions

All positions are paid seasonal positions. They include room and board. Please note that the pay rate is a starting at rate
