Listen here to learn about an unprecedented opportunity to give your kids a taste for sailing, marine science, and adventure — this coming Saturday, April 21st!

Bainbridge Island’s own Salish Sea Expeditions is offering a last-minute chance to join their family sail this weekend. Bring your children (age 5 and up) to explore the Puget Sound using hands-on scientific inquiry and seamanship aboard the 61-foot sailing vessel, Carlyn.

After donning your life jackets, you and your kids will board the Carlyn and set sail, spending your morning learning how to sail, deploying equipment over the side of the vessel, discovering exciting facts about the Salish Seas, and — if you’re lucky — you may even get to steer this amazingly beautiful boat!

To learn more about the SOUND Science under Sail program for families and adults, and to enquire about scholarship assistance for this program, visit the website or call the Salish Sea Expeditions office at 206-780-7848 — and do it soon; this Saturday will be here before you know it!
