Call of the Sea provides youth of all backgrounds access to the unique ecology, rich history, and beauty of San Francisco Bay and the California coast.
Come aboard schooner Seaward or brigantine Matthew Turner for Bay Explorations, 3-hour field experiences in San Francisco Bay for up to 40 participants on Seaward and 60 participants on Matthew Turner. Book a sail for 3rd-12th grade students anytime from April to November from 9:00am-12:00pm or 1:00pm-4:00pm.
Call of the Sea offers several lesson plans. We adapt our pedagogical approach to enhance the learning outcomes you would like to see for your students. Teachers are encouraged to collaborate with us to create lesson plans to suit educational goals.
Board and disembark at our home port at the US Army Corps of Engineers Bay Model Pier, Sausalito, CA.
We are exploring docking options for our neighboring cities to increase access. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to ask about docking in a Bay Area port near you.
Total cost on schooner Seaward is $1,550 for up to 40 participants and $3,100 for up to 60 participants on Matthew Turner. For educational sails that require a different pickup/drop-off other than our Sausalito dock, there is a $495 docking fee.
Once you’ve booked your sail, please find liability waivers and additional resources for teachers.
We strive to make these programs accessible to students of all backgrounds, and provide scholarships to families and schools with financial need. Please complete this scholarship application and email email@example.com to see if you qualify.
Scholarships would not be possible without the generous support of our donors and sponsors. If you do not qualify for a scholarship, we can offer support for your school or program to fundraise for your on-the-water educational experience.
