>Call of the Sea is a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit with the mission of connecting people to the sea and maritime traditions. Our teaching platform is the lovely 82' schooner, SEAWARD. Our goal is to offer the benefits of connecting with the sea and sailing to all people, with a special focus on empowering youth of all backgrounds. Our programs range from three hours to two weeks long, primarily taking place on San Francisco Bay and during the winter ranging as far as Baja Mexico;Bay Explorations" is a 3-hour sailing field trip on San Francisco Bay. Students will learn about science, history, and seamanship in a hands-on program that aligns with California State Education Standards. Watch the video to see schooner Seaward in action! You'll learn how an on-the-water experience can impact your students, and how our programs will expand in the future with the building of a new ship! 



"We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future."


The recent educational climate has changed our mission like never before. However, with your continued support, we will be able to offer our unique educational programs to nearly 4,000 students in the Bay Area this year. Please consider making your tax deductible gift today with a secure online donation.
