  • Create an inclusive, welcoming community that is physically and emotionally safe
  • Support personal and professional growth and lifelong learning opportunities for crew, staff, and volunteers
  • Model low-impact, sustainable living practices aboard Adventuress that contribute to a healthy Puget Sound and planet
  • Steward the maintenance and restoration of the historic schooner Adventuress so that she will sail in perpetuity
  • Create non-profit, private and public sector partnerships that contribute to environmental stewardship, youth engagement and historic preservation
  • Maintain the highest ethical standards in all areas of the organization including the ship, the staff, and leadership


Since its inception, the nonprofit Sound Experience has been educating youth and adults throughout Puget Sound with environmental education and leadership programs aboard the historic schooner Adventuress. In over 20 years, more than 50,000 (mostly youth) have sailed aboard, exploring the ecology and history of Puget Sound. In 1989, Adventuress was named a National Historic Landmark. Today, more than 3,000 people a year sail aboard, experiencing first-hand Puget Sound's majesty and vulnerability, and how their daily actions will make a difference in the health of the region's waterways for generations to come.
