To provide access to boating opportunities for youth and adults on the Olympic Peninsula.
What We Do
We are a non-profit who strives to provide opportunities for those in our community to explore the natural aquatic resources of the Olympic Peninsula including the waters of the Salish Sea, Port Angeles Harbor, Sequim Bay, Discovery Bay and beyond. Our focus is on education & experience and we feel that spending time in this amazing environment should not be limited by economics, age, or ability. We endeavor to provide an avenue for everyone to make a connection to the water through boating.
To achieve these goals we we partner with local organizations such as the Port Angeles Yacht Club and the Port of Port Angeles. We also partner with the Boys Scouts of America's Sea Scout Ship 1212 for education and on the water activities for youth ages 14-21.
