Reserve Your Spring Education Programs

The weather these last few weeks has been absolutely crazy in Michigan and across the Midwest! We are certainly dreaming of warmer days and setting sail aboard the Appledore tall ships.

If you are an educator or know an educator who might be interested in a Spring or Fall experiential learning opportunity for their classroom, please feel free to share this information.

Since 1998, over 48,000 students have participated in a Science Under Sail program aboard the Appledore tall ships.

Twenty years later, BaySail continues to deliver our award-winning Science Under Sail program to students across Michigan from the decks of Appledore IV and Appledore V. Additional program offerings include History Under Sail, dockside, classroom & other land-based education programs for K-12 students and more.

This spring, the Appledore tall ships will visit a few different ports to offer educational programming. Appledore IV will begin her season April 22 in Bay City, then visit Detroit from April 29 – May 3 before returning to Bay City for programs in May and June. Appledore V will begin her season in Bay City around May 13 before traveling to East Tawas for programs. Education programs will be offered for groups in the Tawas Bay region, as well as public sailing opportunities, from May 20 – June 2.

There are still a handful of morning and afternoon programs available this spring. Teachers are encouraged to reach out at their earliest convenience to reserve their program. Visit our Education Under Sail page for more information about all the programs we offer in the classroom or onboard a tall ship!
