From her berth at Maritime Gloucester, Adventure offers immersive, hands-on learning for all grade levels – studying history, culture, nautical science and STEAM lessons based on the design, function and operation of a working sailing ship.
75% of our youth participants are boys and girls from low to moderate income backgrounds. As a sailing museum, Adventure hones the teamwork, leadership and communication skills of her students.

Students can do all this while sailing on board the 122’ National Historic Landmark fishing schooner, Adventure. Launched in 1926, Adventure was one of the most successful fishing vessels of the early 20th century.
Adventure is available from June 1 through October 1 for individuals in grades 3 and up. We offer both dockside (2-3 hours) and sailing (3-4 hours) programs. We recommend groups limit students to no more than 45 to optimize the learning experience.
Our goal is to provide educational programs that are accessible to all. For that reason, our pricing may be designed to meet your budget. Additionally, funding from grants may be available to defray costs.
