Shearwater University is located in Anacortes – the most beautiful and natural gateway to the Salish Sea. When you take classes here, you are not just learning the skills and knowledge. You are doing so within the spectacular context you ultimately want to be in, in the heart of the Salish Sea. Surrounded by islands on the water, and with beautiful forests on shore, there are beaches, hiking trails and bike trails to enjoy while you are here. Anacortes is also home to a rich art community (with a dazzling variety of galleries), and an array of outstanding restaurants and micro-brew pubs.
