You can make a difference in a young person's life - and for the future of our marine environment!

Sound Experience delivers powerful shipboard programs that emphasize environmental stewardship, leadership, community, career opportunities in marine science and the maritime world, and historic preservation. Our teaching platform is the 133-foot schooner Adventuress, a National Historic Landmark and Puget Sound treasure built in 1913.

Programs aboard Adventuress provide young people with invaluable awareness of the issues affecting the marine environment of our region. Participants come from many parts of our community, including public, private and home schools, youth groups, and programs serving at-risk and under-served teens. Approximately 20% of participants come from low-income school districts. For many of these young people, Adventuress has been a turning point in their lives. Instilling this sense of community is what truly makes Sound Experience a one-of-a-kind organization.

In 2017, more than 6000 students, teachers and adults stepped aboard Adventuress on dockside, day long and multi-day experiential programs. More than 260 participants learned about the ecology of the Salish Sea and marine stewardship on in-depth overnight, multi-day programs.

Your support is integral to our efforts to bring children and teens aboard in 2018.

Thank you for your generous support! On behalf of Sound Experience aboard the schooner Adventuress, thank you for helping deliver powerful life-changing programs to young people - for the future of Puget Sound and the Salish Sea.
