Read More about the Member Transit
Twice a year, we offer a very special benefit to Sound Experience Members—the Member Transit.

These two-day trips offer a unique opportunity to sail aboard Adventuress as part of the crew and experience life aboard first hand. Please note that these are one-way trips—you depart from one port and arrive the next day at another.

The first Member Transit of the season will leave on Saturday, May 6, from Shilshole Bay Marina in Seattle and arrive at Bellingham's Squalicum Harbor Marina in the early evening on Sunday, May 7. Children 8 and up are welcome when accompanied by an adult. Open to Sound Experience Members only. The cost of the 2-day Transit is $75 per person.

Please note: this voyage departs from Shilshole Bay Marina in Seattle on Wednesday, June 21, and ends in Squalicum Harbor Marina in Bellingham on Sunday, June 25.

We're planning something special for the women who join us in 2017: a 5-day voyage from Seattle to Bellingham that will include a stop in Port Townsend for a special evening reception with wine, cheese, and Catherine Collins, our very own Executive Director.

This trip offers women 18 and over the chance to join together with our crew of shipboard educators to sail Adventuress, explore Puget Sound, and learn about the marine environment. Join us for fun, camaraderie, community, and incredible learning!

In 2017, the wonderful and accomplished Rachael Slattery will serve as Captain. We strive for a large number of female crew on WATH, but participants may also be joined by our friendly and supportive male crew members.

Cost is $575 for Sound Experience Members and $630 for non-Members.
"I would describe it as a confidence-building experience. I came away really energized and exhilarated."

"Being on Adventuress gave me a sense of all the life both in the water and along the shore. I had a sense of how essential it is to preserve the life that surrounds us."
