What is Voyage Seaward?

Voyage Seaward is a 5-day overnight program in which participants experience nature and build self-confidence through the adventure of sailing a tall ship. Participants keep watch, sleep on-board the ship, and contribute to sailing activities. Furthermore, participants practice the scientific method to learn marine biology and ecology. Voyage Seaward gives young people a meaningful connection with their bay and coastal waters and offers the benefits of an extended, live-aboard sailing program.

Summer voyages are Tuesday through Saturday. Available dates in 2019 include:

  • June 11th-June 15th
