About Adventure

The Gloucester Adventure, Inc a 501(C)(3) non-profit historic preservation and educational organization, was established to restore the schooner Adventure as a historic community resource and living classroom. Volunteers help year-round with vessel restoration, innovative educational programs, events and fundraising.

One of the last five surviving Essex-built dory-fishing schooners, the Adventure is an icon of the nation’s fishing industry and a centerpiece of America’s oldest fishing port. Adventure is a destination site on the Essex National Heritage Area Maritime Trail–the only National Historic Landmark vessel in Essex County. It serves as a living memorial to the more than 5,000 Gloucester fishermen who perished at sea. Built in 1926, the Adventure was the last American dory-trawler, fishing in the North Atlantic when she retired in 1953.
