What You Can Expect: Live aboard the 101-foot schooner Adventuress—a National Historic Landmark and Puget Sound treasure constructed in 1913—as you take the helm, raise the sails, and absorb the history and traditions of tall ships. Sail through the San Juan Islands by day and anchor at a different harbor each night. What To Expect Onboard: The Schooner Adventuress was built at the Rice Brothers Yard in East Boothbay, Maine. Designed by B.B. Crowninshield, the two-masted, gaff-rigged schooner was launched in 1913. Her owner, John Borden II, of Chicago, commissioned the vessel for his personal use to embark on an Arctic expedition to collect specimens for the American Museum of Natural History in New York, with the particular goal of adding a bowhead whale skeleton to the museum's exhibits. The goal would go unrealized, however, and Adventuress would move on—without Mr. Borden—to other endeavors, including several decades of service with the San Francisco Bar Pilots. Adventuress came north to Seattle in 1952, and today she serves as the flagship of Sound Experience, a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of Puget Sound. Carrying more than 3,500 passengers each year on educational expeditions, she had become an icon for environmental awareness and stewardship.
