Expanding horizons through experiential, environmental education under sail.

Call of the Sea is a educational nonprofit 501(c)(3) that has been serving thousands of Bay Area youth for over ten years.

Through our empowering shipboard programs aboard schooner Seaward, we cultivate environmental stewardship in future generations while celebrating maritime history and tradition.

Call of the Sea is making way towards a sustainable future: we’re creating a floating foundation for a hundred years of experiential youth education by building a historic, yet innovative wooden tall ship, Matthew Turner.

Be part of the legacy! Join the community of donors and volunteers who have supported Matthew Turner, the Bay Area’s own tall ship.
