Tall Ship Mariner Experience

Girl Scouts of Western Washington Virtual Programs

Splish Splash Week - August 10-14th

Sixty years ago, a Girl Scout troop stepped aboard a schooner named Adventuress for the very first time and went to sea. This summer follow in their footsteps and learn all about their trip and how Adventuress sails the waters of the Salish Sea today. Join us as you take a virtual journey with Sound Experience aboard the schooner Adventuress.
