We offer a variety of programs designed to introduce students to the thrill of classic sailing and encourage stewardship of the marine and coastal landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. Join us onboard for the experience of a lifetime. Including College accredited summer courses for teens, single-day group programs and weekend trips for families. All Deep Green Wilderness programs take place aboard Orion, our 64’ wooden yawl. Orion is as beautiful and well kept today as she was in 1934 the year she was launched, and her traditional rig and design make her the perfect platform for teaching sailing. Deep Green Wilderness offers a variety of education programs throughout the year. Each program is designed to highlight different aspects of the Salish Sea and take advantage of our beautiful vessel. Whether you are a teen hoping to get some college credit for the summer, a family that would like to learn to sail or a teacher who would like to get their class out on the water, join us onboard for the sailing experience of a lifetime.
How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?
Evergreen reinforced in me the value of an education gained outside the classroom and encouraged me to approach a question through a diversity of fields. At Deep green Wilderness we use the same interdisciplinary approach to scientific inquiry to show students the value of an education gained out of the harbor, our own version of out of the classroom.
