Program Details

Looking for an awesome volunteer cook to help us out this winter from October to the end of the year, feeding a hungry bunch of maintenance crew who come to help us fix up the ship for next seasons sailing.
It's a great place to work and meet new people from all over the world, based in the fantastic city of Bilbao.
Make no mistake, they get hungry! You will be cooking lunch & dinner daily for around 15 people ( up to 24 max) and we cater for all diets so you'll need to be able to make a variety of different meals to suit all tastes, and on a strict budget! You'll also be responsible for keeping the galley clean.
In return you'll get to hone your budgeting, provisioning & menu planning skills, live on the coolest wooden ship around, meet amazing people, enjoy all Bilbao has to offer & possibly have the best time of your life!


Be cheerful!
