Call of the Sea is an educational non-profit that connects people to the sea and maritime traditions. We aim to increase coastal access and empower people of all backgrounds through experiential and environmental education on the water.
To inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to connect with the sea and its tributaries through educational programs aboard traditional sailing vessels that focus on marine sciences, nautical heritage, the ocean environment and careers in the maritime profession. Our youth-oriented sail training programs are designed to build self confidence, self-awareness, discipline, and the teamwork and leadership skills inherent in being part of a ship’s crew.
Our teaching platforms are the 82′ schooner Seaward, and the 132′ brigantine Matthew Turner.
