semper quaerens - our adventure boat


field trips by sea

Some adventures are best done on the water. Meet the Semper Quaerens, our 40-foot performance cruising sailboat. The Field Trip Society will be offering limited bookings during the summer and early fall of 2019. Gather a handful of friends for a sunset sail, a crabbing excursion (SOLD OUT FOR SEASON) or an afternoon at sea. Contact us at for availability and rates, suitable for up to 6 guests.


Our vessel, the Semper Quaerens, is a comfortable and quick J/40 performance cruiser with a full suite of modern navigation electronics, extensive safety gear, and comfortable life jackets for all passengers. If the weather kicks up, take refuge below in the spacious and bright heated cabin with two heads (that’s bathrooms in landlubber speak), a full galley with oven, range, fridge and freezer, and ample seating for 6 adults around a large table.

Your captain and crew have tens of thousands of open ocean miles in their wake, and more than 40 years combined experience plying the waters of the Salish Sea. They can provide as much or as little sailing or navigational instruction as you want.
