My children have had the opportunity to experience both day camp and summer camp at Sanibel Sea School. It is the one thing they ask for each year when options for camp arise. They are having so much fun they have no idea they're actually learning a lot about our oceans and the creatures that inhabit our ocean environment. If... More

My children, now 7 and 10, attend every year and we travel to Sanibel to make this happen.

Can't say enough about this... More

My son attended Sanibel Sea Camp last week and loved every minute of it. Doc Bruce, Nicole and the entire team take safety seriously, all while learning and having fun in the ocean! We will definitely be back!

My boys aged 10 and 12, participated in Sea School at the Sundial campus on our last day on Sanibel. My only regret is that I didn't find out about it sooner. The boys had a blast learning about Ospreys and other animals. They were able to explain to us what they had learned about he birds and other sea... More
