Story

One of the last surviving Grand Banks dory-fishing schooners. The Schooner Adventure is a national treasure that has resumed active sailing as an icon of the American fisheries and as a floating classroom for maritime history and education programs. The Schooner is operated along the New England coast, as a living monument to Massachusetts’ fishing heritage. As such, the Schooner Adventure is important not only to Gloucester, but also to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and all America.

Adventure is a National Historic Landmark, and portrayed the Schooner “We’re Here” in the 1977 television adaptation of Kipling’s “Captains Courageous.”
