Jaden learned so many new things and he was having so much fun he didn't realize he was learning! That's the best kind of learning!

My two kids, ages 9 & 10, went to the Sea Horse half day program and loved it! My older daughter said she especially loved the many hands on activities and the trip to the beach in search of sea horses and other sea life. About the counselors, my daughter said they were "amazing, nice, funny, smart, and made me... More

It's great news that your kids had fun searching for seahorses with us - we think it's one of our best classes since there is a high chance of encountering other fascinating seagrass inhabitants as well. Thank you so much for your review. More

"Sea School - can I go again?" Whether the subject is sharks or the Eco-system, the experience is a five-star winner. My granddaughter considers Sea School the best part of her December visit. Even more than the presents! Sea School is truly exceptional.

Both grandsons ages 7 and 8 1/2 had the best time. They were drawn in by a very attentive, welcoming staff and program just for them. They each did 3 half-day sessions. Sometimes I plan things for them and imagine how it's going to be and it doesn't nearly meet my expectations. Sanibel Sea School was over the top. It... More

How exciting to see a 15 year old get up early and ask when someone could take him to Sea School....he didn't want to be late ! This is a life changing experience no matter what level a child is participating on. Days spent at Sanibel Sea School will be with you all the Days of Your Life !

Our two 10 year olds loved touring the island and adjacent beaches on this afternoon exploration. Wetsuits provided for examining sea creatures.

My kids dreaded going to "school" while on vacation but I knew that they would love it. They got to learn about sharks, go fishing, make shark tooth necklaces and play with snakes. They were so excited when we picked them up they said that they wanted to go for full days for the rest of the week! Staff was... More
