Great Lakes Discovery Sail

  • About

    Are you curious what lies beneath the surface of the Great Lakes? Have you ever wondered what it means to be a scientist, sailor, or steward of the Great Lakes? Join us on a Great Lakes Discovery Sail for a three-hour, hands-on adventure aboard the 77-foot schooner Inland Seas to find out! 

    Throughout this adventure, you’ll act as a scientist by collecting fish, plankton, and organisms from the bottom of the lake using real scientific equipment. You’ll also get to try your hand at some on board water chemistry and learn how scientists monitor the health of the Great Lakes. During your sail, you’ll help raise the anchor, hoist the sails, and even try your hand at steering the ship!

    This program is appropriate for learners of all ages, so bring along your family and friends. We’re sure everyone will learn something new and feel more connected to the Great Lakes.
