Last summer, I had the incredible opportunity to spend some time on board the Schooner Adventuress! You can read more about my first time on tall ship here. Now it’s your turn to experience the high seas of the Puget Sound with the Schooner Adventuress 2018 Summer Programs!
The Schooner Adventuress is visiting a port near you this summer!
Over the summer the 105-year old schooner Adventuress will be visiting Olympia, Seattle, Anacortes, and Bellingham which gives you the opportunity to step on board for one of their unique 3-hour Public Sails. Help raise sails and take a turn at the wheel as they explore Puget Sound and learn from the crew it’s unique marine environment and the history of Adventuress.
