Sound Experience is a Puget Sound-based environmental and youth leadership organization that uniquely delivers its programs aboard the 133′ historic wooden schooner Adventuress. we reach more than 4,000 young people and adults each year, inspiring in them a greater understanding of the complexity of our marine ecological systems and stronger commitment to the stewardship of our waters. Aboard Adventuress, on day or overnight programs, participants experience the majesty and vulnerability of Puget Sound – and why the future of our marine environment matters to all of us.
Sound Studies and Sound Explorations
Sound Studies and Sound Explorations are programs designed to spark the imagination and foster an interest in science, leadership and the environment. As Adventuress sets out on the waters of Puget Sound, students work as a team to help raise the sails. They learn about Puget Sound ecology and history by participating in five hands-on discovery stations which can include:
- Marine Life
- Ocean Acidification
- Nautical Skills
- Life Aboard Ship.
- Sound Studies: 3-5 hour shipboard education programs
- Sound Explorations: 2- to 7-day journeys of exploration and self-discovery
- Group Size: Adventuress’ 101-foot deck easily accommodates 45 participants for day sails.
- Overnight programs include sleeping accommodations and meals for 24 participants.
