Salish Sea Expeditions

Salish Sea Expeditions serves students in grades 5-12 by inspiring a passion for learning through hands-on marine science and STEM-focused exploration, maritime skills training and leadership development aboard a 61-foot sailing research vessel on the waters of Puget Sound. Students design and conduct experiments, deploy oceanographic equipment, gather and analyze data, plot a course for data collection, handle sails and boat navigation, and work as a team to better understand the environmental health of the Salish Sea and its connected waterways.
