Description
Step aboard for an overnight experience like no other. During this hands-on program on board the 82' schooner Seaward, students will be completely immersed in the world of a ship and become part of the crew. They learn sailing, marine science, navigation, maritime history, sailors' arts, and much more through direct experience and the instruction of a professional crew. They'll build friendships, teamwork and leadership skills, and self-confidence through this adventure on San Francisco Bay. The voyage track will depend on the conditions that mother nature offers, and will include beautiful destinations all over the bay. Voyages can be 1-4 nights (sleeping on the boat), and longer voyages will likely include a trip through the Golden Gate and onto the ocean.

Seaward is a U.S. Coast Guard inspected vessel with a USCG licensed Captain and Mate.

"The voyage was pretty much the best experience I've had . . . ever. The people were great, the food was delicious. The bonds I made grew as the trip went on. The fact that it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience was definitely proven to me. This is definitely something I would do again, any day." -2011 participant
