Carved from a sheet of glacial ice more than a half mile thick, the 1300 miles of delicate shorelines bordering Puget Sound are the remnants of mother nature's recent toils. Life on Puget Sound only re-emerged about 10,000 years ago when the last sediments settled out of the melting ice. Since then, this unique body of water has rapidly developed into one of the most diverse and prolific ecosystems on the planet.

Join us on a classic yachting adventure as we explore the shorelines of Puget Sound on a historic wooden vessel built from the huge old-growth timber that once blanketed the region. Witness first hand the power of nature as we observe and discuss the land formations from the perspective of the sea. Feel the tide rips as we round Alki Point and lean how ocean upwelling feeds nutrients to life on the surface. Learn what kelp beds, driftwood and shoreline erosion have in common.

As we approach Bainbridge Island, you will see the striations in the bedrock left behind by the ice and discover what creatures lurk within. As we cruise up the West side of the sound, you will discover the vast richness of the region as we discuss and view points of interest in native american culture, pioneer history and the lure of early industry.

This is a fascinating three hour educational tour that is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the unique physical nature of Puget Sound and how it came to be one of the most desirable places to live in the world.
